Burnaby - 6005 Pandora Street - Stratford Gardens

Rendering Stratford Gardens


Overview

To help with the region’s growing housing affordability crisis, BC Housing is planning to redevelop its property at 6005 Pandora Street, Burnaby (“Stratford Gardens”). The redevelopment will include reinvesting in the property and rebuilding aging affordable housing. BC Housing’s goal is to replace the existing affordable housing and create additional affordable housing, to continue to offer high-quality, affordable housing for current residents, and to create more affordable homes in the City of Burnaby.

Community Engagement

In June of 2021 BC Housing engaged current Stratford Gardens tenants to inform them of the intention to explore options for redevelopment. Engagement is ongoing with current tenants.

Notification was also given to immediate neighbours of Stratford Gardens to inform them of the intention to explore options for redevelopment and solicit early input. Neighbours will have future opportunities to engage with BC Housing about the project.

Project Details

The redevelopment will include:

  • Replacement of all existing affordable seniors’ homes
  • Additional purpose-built affordable rental homes for seniors, couples, individuals, and families
  • Improved site conditions through upgrades to landscaping, curbs and sidewalks
  • Landscaped pedestrian walkway
  • Amenity courtyard
  • Childcare facility
  • Vehicle and bicycle parking (including visitor stalls) provided in one underground level

Redevelopment will be phased to minimize disruption for existing residents. Phase 1 will replace all existing affordable seniors’ units to minimize potential tenant relocations and to give the opportunity for current tenants to move into the new building. The later phases will include additional affordable housing.

  • Hello, I live on North Stratford Ave, and have lived here for over 20 years. As far as I am aware, no one on our street has yet been asked yet to provide input on the redevelopment of this site. When can neighboring residents expect engagement on this???? Specifically, I would like to know what increased density plans are especially considering our street already has parking at a premium. What is the projected increase to residential density for the development? I would also like to know how many stories are being planned for the new buildings.

    At this point in project planning, BC Housing is only notifying neighbours and stakeholders of our long-term intentions to revitalize the site and add new affordable housing units. 

    We will, however, reach out to neighbours and stakeholders again in the coming months to present our preliminary ideas for the Stratford Gardens redevelopment. At that time we will present information on potentially density, heights and traffic management. This will give neighbours and stakeholders a chance to provide their input.
