Additional proposal details

Site overview

The development site is approximately 1.3 ha (3.2 acres), and consists of 24 single-family lots and two areas of municipal lane.

The Seylynn Village development — four buildings ranging in height from six to 32 storeys, with an eventual 790 homes and 1,115 sq m (12,000 sq ft) of commercial space — is to the north, and Seylynn Park is to the west.

To the east is a future low-rise apartment development assembly, and the land to the south is designated for a mix of low-rise and high-rise development.

Current land use designation

The site has two designations in the Official Community Plan (OCP):

  • The western portion is designated CRMU3 (mixed commercial and residential multi-family uses to a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.5)
  • The eastern portion is designated RES6 (multi-family residential uses to a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.5)

Additional requirements

The development site is currently zoned for detached residential (single family) uses. If the project proceeds, it will require an OCP amendment and a 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 reduction
  • Creek hazard

Proposed size

The floor space ratio (FSR) is approximately 3.9.


The development includes provision of a new north/south lane through the site, to connect Hunter Street to Fern Street, as well as a portion of Lynn Creek Town Centre's 'green spine' linear park. The green spine will provide a landscaped pedestrian connection between Hunter and Fern Streets at the east side of the development site.

Road dedications and infrastructure improvements on Fern Street, Mountain Highway, and Hunter Street will allow for:

  • road widening
  • intersection improvements
  • street lighting
  • sidewalk installations
  • boulevard and street tree plantings
