The Pearson Dogwood lands are a 10-hectare (25.4-acre) property bounded by West 57th Ave (to the north), Cambie St (east), West 59th Ave (south), and Heather St (west).
The site owners, Onni Group (developer) and Vancouver Coastal Health, applied in January 2016 to rezone and develop the property into a mixed-use community.
On July 25, 2017, Council approved the rezoning application.
The rezoning and development proposal is based on the Pearson Dogwood Policy Statement approved by City Council in 2014.

Regular Council Meeting: July 25, 2017
The rezoning application has been approved in principle by Council on July 25, 2017. The application will be enacted once the applicant has met all conditions for enactment.
We expect a development permit application process to follow enactment.
In 2014, City Council approved the Pearson Dogwood Policy Statement to guide the future redevelopment of the site. We developed the policy statement over a year-long collaborative planning process with help from VCH and the surrounding community.
The policy statement set principles and objectives for:
- Land use
- Building forms and heights
- Parks and open spaces
- Community amenities
We asked what you thought about the rezoning application for Pearson Dogwood in an online questionnaire.
Thanks to everyone who shared their thoughts. We're currently analyzing the feedback we received and will provide a summary soon.
We held two open houses on February 23 and 27 with the applicant team for you to learn about the rezoning application and ask questions. View the display boards:
