Additional proposal details
The development site is located on the northwest corner of Fullerton Avenue and Glenair Drive, and is currently occupied by five single-family homes. It has an area of approximately 1,353 sq m (14,571 sq ft).
The Capilano River and Capilano River Regional Park are north of the site, and there are single family homes to the east and south.
Current land use designation
The Official Community Plan (OCP) designates the site as Residential Level 2: Detached Residential
If the project proceeds, it will require:
- An OCP amendment to change the designation to Residential Level 4: Transitional Multi-Family
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
- Streamside protection
Because the site is located just south of the Capilano River, the development must also provide an average 15m (49.2 ft) riparian area setback.
- Glenaire Drive sidewalk and roadway improvements
- A new trail at the rear of the development to improve connectivity in the area
The floor space ratio (FSR) is approximately1.06.
