Additional proposal details
The site is currently occupied by two single-family homes and a portion of unopened District lane allowance.
There are single-family homes to the north and west, a new rental apartment building to the south, and undeveloped District lots to the east (zoned single family).
Current land use designation
The Official Community Plan (OCP) designates this site as Residential Level 5: Low Density Apartments (RES5).
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 development
- Energy and water conservation and greenhouse gas emission reductions
- Creek hazard
The floor space ratio (FSR) is 3.09.
The project will contribute a five metre dedication for the new north-south "green spine" through Lynn Creek Town Centre, and will provide a portion of the new mixed-use path on Oxford St.
