Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview

Site overview

The site is

  • part of the Seylynn Village project north of Fern Street and east of Mountain Highway
  • approximately 5.5 acres (2.2 hectares)

Current zoning

The site was rezoned to Comprehensive Development Zone 67 (CD67) on December 12, 2012.

The proposed Phase 2 development is in accordance with the objectives for Lower Lynn Town Centre in the District's Official Community Plan (OCP), and with the site's CD67 zoning.

Proposed size

The floor space ratio proposed for the entire Seylynn Village development is approximately 3.2 over the 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).

Project background

Development of Seylynn Village was approved by District Council in December of 2012 to allow for a mixed-use, high density development of up to 790 homes.

The property is divided into four development parcels and Phase 1 is currently under construction at the south-east corner of the site (Lot 1)
