Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview

Site overview

The site is

  • located on Mount Seymour Parkway 
  • currently two single family parcels

Current zoning

The Official Community Plan designates this site as Reidential Level 4: Transition Multi Family. This allows a floor space ratio FSR up to approximately 1.2. 

Additional requirements

This proposal requires rezoning and Development Permits for

  • Form and Character
  • Energy and Water Conservation and Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions
  • Wildfire Hazard
  • Creek Hazard
  • Streamside Protection

If rezoning proceeds, the Development Permits would be forwarded to Council for consideration.

Proposed size

The floor space ratio proposed is approximately 1.0 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

Access to the site will be from a rear lane that begins at Parkgate Avenue through the development on the West end of the block at 3508 Mount Seymour Parkway.
