Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview
The development site is a large, flat property occupied by several light industrial buildings located on the south side of Hunter Street.
Lynn Creek is located west of the site, Seylynn Park is across the street to the north, and Mountain Highway borders the property to the east.
The area of the site is approximately 2.01 acres (91,557 sq ft).
Current land use designation
The Official Community Plan (OCP) and the Lynn Creek Town Center Implementation Plan designate this site as Commercial Residential Mixed Use Level 3. This allows for a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.5.
If the project 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
- Creek hazard
- Streamside protection
The floor space ratio (FSR) is approximately 3.5 (excluding the community centre).
In addition to the community centre, this development will also include a public plaza, and there is the possibility of public art (provided by the developer).
Improvements will be made to the road and sidewalk along Hunter Street and Mountain Highway to enhance pedestrian and vehicle access. The developer will also construct a paved multi-use path along Lynn Creek next to the development site.
