Additional proposal details, including site plan and overview
The site is located on Mount Seymour Parkway, and has two single-family homes on it.
The Official Community Plan designates this site as Residential Level 4: Transition Multifamily. This allows a floor space ratio FSR up to approximately 1.2.
This proposal requires rezoning and Development Permits for
- Form and Character
- Energy and Water Conservation and Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions
- Wildfire Hazard
- Creek Hazard
- Streamside Protection
The floor space ratio proposed is approximately 1.0 over the gross area of the site under redevelopment. (Floor Space Ratio, or FSR, is the ratio of the building area, divided by the site area – a 10,000 square foot building sitting on a site of 10,000 square feet has a Floor Space Ratio of 1.0).
A new lane at the rear of the development is proposed, which will link the site with Parkgate Avenue.
