    Is there a chance it could be a low rise and include commercial space in bottom floor? Kind of like a corridor with maybe a couple of restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores or produce stores. That would greatly benefit the neighborhood; there is more than enough high rises and apartment buildings being built at the moment, and I feel like another 30+ story like Novare and 618 Carnarvon would just gentrify this neighborhood further.

    The subject site is designated “Residential – Tower Apartments” in the  Downtown Community Plan (DCP). This designation would expect high density residential uses as has been proposed in this application. In the DCP, mixed use buildings (e.g. residential combined with retail or other commercial uses), like you have described, are generally located on primary commercial streets such as Columbia Street, Carnarvon Street and Sixth Street. You can review a Consolidated Land use Map for the City here.

    How long is construction anticipated to take once for this project once it starts?

    Dutchie asked 6 months ago

    The proposed development has not yet completed its application review process, which would still require additional community consultation and consideration by Council. Construction would not be able to commence until this application review process is completed and only if approved by Council. Should these approvals be obtained, the applicant estimates that construction would take approximately 2.5 years to complete.

    Is there any updates as to when construction is planned to begin? In 2020 an estimate of early second quarter of 2021 was given.

    Anonymous asked 11 months ago

    The rezoning application has not yet been formally considered by Council (i.e. Bylaw readings) and a date for that consideration has not yet been set. Should the rezoning be adopted, the applicant would need to apply for necessary building permits and begin coordinating construction activities. At this time, and pending Council approval, it is not anticipated that construction would happen until late 2021 at the earliest.

    How will residents at this address access Albert Crescent park and will those routes be universally accessible? How will the separation of adjacent public park space and pubic access routes to the park and private development space be managed?

    GDG asked 11 months ago

    Staff are working with the applicant to ensure the provision of strong, well designed connections into Albert Crescent Park are provided. There would be two pedestrian connections adjacent to the site to allow access to Albert Crescent Park. The first, at the north of the property adjacent to a high rise at 188 Agnes St, is already existing and would be widened, improved and use similar materials as existing. The second connection at the south of the site would be new and would align with a new crosswalk at the western terminus of Carnarvon St. This path is currently proposed as cast in place concrete and would be at least 2 metres wide and grades would be less than 5%, meeting accessibility requirements. 

    Outdoor private space would be provided on-site for both residential and child care uses and park space would be reserved for public use.
