About The Application
The proposed zoning is for a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) to allow development of a 30.0 metre (approximately 9 storeys) mid-rise apartment building. The proposal includes:
- Up to 210 residential dwellings
- Floor Area Ratio of 5.35
- Rooftop canopy feature above the building atrium (excluded from the total height)
- Underground parking accessible from the lane
In addition, an associated application has been made to amend current policies of the McKernan-Belgravia Station Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) which do not support the development of this intensity at this location.
The McKernan-Belgravia Station ARP Guiding Principles and Policies 4.4.1(2) and 4.4.7(1) direct development within the University Avenue Corridor to provide for a maximum of 6 storeys in height along University Avenue between 113 Street and 115 Street. These guiding principles, policies and their associated maps are proposed to be amended to exclude the subject properties from the 6-storey maximum threshold for this portion of the University Avenue Corridor.
