Additional proposal details
The site is comprised of four single-family residential lots located mid-block on the south side of Bond Street between Mountain Highway and Orwell Street, and includes a portion of open District lane allowance immediately south.
Surrounding properties include single-family residential lots to the north, east and west, the Creekstone Care Centre is to the south, and a six-storey rental building to the southeast.
Current land use designation
The Official Community Plan (OCP) designates this site as Residential Level 5 (RES5).
If the project proceeds, it will require rezoning and an Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment. It will also require a development permit for:
- Creek hazard
- Form and character of commercial, industrial, and multi-family development
- Energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas emission reductions
The proposed floor space ratio (the building's total floor area in relation to the size of the lot) is 2.67
Proposed access and other improvements
The proposal includes a portion of District lane to the south of the site which will be closed if the project proceeds.
The project is also contributing 5 metres of the east portion of the site plus construction costs for a future north-south linear park and pedestrian/cycling connection identified in the Lower Lynn Implementation Plan (Lynn Creek Plan) — the 'green spine' — which will be immediately east of the site.
