975 W 10th Avenue is a 17-unit three-storey apartment building with drawings in place to create a 624 SF 18th suite on the ground floor. Including the proposed additional one-bedroom, the price per unit is $356,667 and the projected cap rate is 2.7%. There is significant revenue upside for the majority of units on turnover.
The property is incredibly well-located within the Broadway Corridor, just east of Oak Street and directly across from Vancouver General Hospital, steps to the future Oak – VGH Subway Station.
Constructed in 1912 and improved on a 6,250 SF CD-1 (137) zoned lot, the building comprises a balanced suite mix of 5 bachelors, 7 one-bedrooms and 6 two-bedrooms, with plans in place for an additional one-bedroom suite. Other highlights include one set of owned washer & dryer and bike storage.
The property’s unique CD-1 (137) zoning permits multiple uses given its adjacency to the hospital. This includes apartment building and hospital related uses such as medical/dental office and laboratory facilities.

Broadway Corridor Plan Study Area
975 W 10th Avenue falls within the FUCB – Vancouver General Hospital Campus sub-area of the Broadway Plan. The FUCB sub-area is a “unique site” node with no formal use or density restrictions. The intent of the sub-area is to support ongoing expansion and development of the VGH campus.
More specifically, Section 9.20.3 of the Broadway Plan states:
“On the north side of West 10th Avenue (from Oak to Willow streets), consider additional density and height up to 106.7 m (350 ft.) or the underside of Queen Elizabeth Park View sections 3.2.1-3.2.3 (if more restrictive), except where helicopter flight paths are more restrictive, for office and institutional uses (recognizing rental replacement requirements per the Rental Housing Stock Official Development Plan).”

The property is centrally located on the north side of West 10th Avenue between Oak Street and Laurel Street in the Fairview neighbourhood of Vancouver. The site is steps to the future Oak – VGH Subway Station and directly opposite Vancouver General Hospital in the heart of the 2nd largest employment node in British Columbia.
West Broadway and West 12th Avenue form the major east-west traffic arteries across the city (direct bus access to UBC), while Oak Street is the major nearby north-south traffic corridor which provides access to and from the downtown core and Richmond / Vancouver International Airport (YVR).
