Additional proposal details

Site overview

The development site is approximately 4,188m2 and contains one principal building and a surface parking lot. Single family dwellings are located to the east, west, north and south of the subject site.

Current land use designation

The Official Community Plan (OCP) designates the site as Institutional (INST). Uses for this designation are predominately public assembly (such as clubs, schools, churches, and recreation centres). Some commercial and accessory residential uses are also permitted.

Proposed size

The existing institutional building has a gross floor area of approximately 372 sq m (4,005 sq ft). The proposed development is approximately 8,050 sq m (86,650 sq ft) in total, including 560 sq m (6,000 sq ft) for public assembly uses (club, social centre) and 7,450 sq m (80,200 sq ft) for rental apartments. 

The floor space ratio (the building's total floor area in relation to the size of the lot) is 2.0.

Additional requirements

The development site is currently zoned for public assembly, including, but not limited to, club, community and social centre, and nursing and rest home uses in buildings to 12m and density to 2.0 FSR. If the project proceeds, it will require rezoning and an OCP amendment.

It will also require a development permit for:

  • Form and character of commercial, industrial and multi-family residential development
  • Energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas emission reductions
