A rezoning application dealing with the plan to build the new St. Paul’s Hospital and health care campus on an 18.4-acre site in False Creek Flats goes to an open house Nov. 20.
The proposal is to change the industrial district designation on properties at 1002 Station St., and 250 to 310 Prior St., to allow for a mixed-use development. The application is being considered under the St. Paul’s Hospital and Health Care Campus Policy Statement, which was approved in June of 2017, as well as the rezoning policy for sustainable large developments.
Aside from the new hospital and health care campus, the proposal features commercial, office, hotel, institutional and limited residential uses that provide a variety of health-related support functions, according to the application.
It also includes plans for retail and commercial space.
Building heights would range from about 20 to 60 metres, there would be a new road network through the site that would connect the existing streets, and there would be two childcare facilities.
The project would be completed in three phases, with 2024 being the target for a finished hospital.

Late last month, the London Drugs and Tong and Geraldine Louie Foundations donated $6.5 million to St. Paul’s Foundation for the provincial heart centre at the new hospital. The cardiac centre at the new facility will be called the Tong Louie Cardiac Wing in recognition of the donation. Read more about that story here.
In 2017, billionaire Jimmy Pattison announced he would contribute $75 million for the new hospital.
The open house for the rezoning application runs from 4 to 7 p.m. at Creekside Community Centre on Nov. 20.
