Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview
The development site is located in the Lions Gate neighbourhood, on the approach to the Lions Gate bridge.
The site consists of four commercial properties:
- Travelodge Hotel
- Pho Japolo Restaurant
- Denny's Restaurant
- Earl's Restaurant parking lot (the restaurant itself is not part of this application, as it is located in West Vancouver)
Current land use designation
The Official Community Plan (OCP) designates this site as Commercial Residential Mixed Use 2 (CRMU2).
The Lions Gate Implementation Plan, as well as the development proposal for the Grouse Inn site, both propose a new east-west access road for the properties along Marine Drive. This new road would separate traffic to these properties from traffic approaching the bridge, reducing conflicts with bridge traffic and improving traffic flow in the HOV lane. This application proposes extending that access road further west. It also proposes extending Glenaire Drive south of Curling Road.
As part of this development, land would be provided to complete Curling Road park. Land will also be provided to improve pedestrian and cycling connections in the area.
If the projects proceeds, it will require rezoning. It will also require a development permit for:
- Form and character of commercial, industrial, and multi-family development
- Energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas emission reductions
