The existing facility is outdated and needs extensive repairs, according to the application, which notes that renovation is not cost-effective and that the building should be replaced and expanded to better serve the growing population in Marpole and Oakridge.

The proposal also envisions the construction of a 13-storey non-market residential building with 70 units above the YMCA facility, and a 20-storey market residential building with 158 strata units adjacent to it.
