1199 Lynn Valley Road (Lynn Valley Centre mall)
Chris Dikeakos Architecture has applied for a development permit in order to renovate the Lynn Valley Centre mall.
The application proposes to:
- upgrade the mall's exterior to reflect the 'mountain village' feel identified in the Lynn Valley Town Centre Plan
- add new amenities, including a plaza with public art and performance space, child play spaces, and covered bike storage
- relocate some of the existing anchor tenants within the mall
There are no plans to increase the amount of commercial space.

Staff have received the detailed application, and are currently reviewing it.
Additional proposal details
Current land use designation
The site is zoned as General Commercial Zone 2 (C2), and the Official Community Plan (OCP) designates it as Commercial Residential Mixed Use Level 3 (CRMU3).
Rezoning is not required for this project. However, if the project proceeds, it will require a development permit for:
- Form and character
- Energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas
Parking and access
The existing surface parking lot will be modified to accommodate a wider sidewalk along the west side of the mall, and to provide an enclosed waste and recycling area on the east side.
The redeveloped mall will have 372 surface parking stalls, with additional stalls available in the new condo development to the south.
