Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview

Site overview

The site is

  • located on the south side of East 27th Street in the Lynn Valley Town Centre
  • currently two multifamily parcels containing a total of 75 units
  • approximately 4.13 acres (1.67 hectares).

Current land use designation

This Official Community Plan designates this site as Residential Level 6: Medium Density Apartment (RES6). This allows a floor space ratio (FSR) up to approximately 2.5

The development proposed is in accordance with the objectives for Lynn Valley Town Centre in the District’s Official Community Plan (OCP) and the “flexible planning framework” for Lynn Valley Town Centre adopted by District Council on October 7, 2013.

Additional requirements

This proposal requires rezoning and a Development Permit for Form and Character of Multi-Family Development. If rezoning proceeds, a Development Permit would be forwarded to Council for consideration.

Proposed size

The floor space ratio proposed is approximately 1.81 over the gross area of the site under redevelopment. (Floor Space Ratio, or FSR, is the ratio of the building area, divided by the site area – a 10,000 square foot building sitting on a site of 10,000 square feet has a Floor Space Ratio of 1.0).

Access

A new north south roadway is proposed through the centre of the site and new east west road on the south of the site. In addition an east west pedestrian path is proposed through the centre of the site.  The new roadways are in accordance with the planning objectives for Lynn Valley Town Centre.
