A 22-unit townhouse development is being proposed in the West End.
The city has received a rezoning and development permit application from a proponent hoping to build 22 two- and three-storey townhouses in four buildings at 1209 to 1217 Eighth Ave. The city’s land use and planning committee recommended staff continue to work with the applicant to refine the project’s design.
According to a staff report, the site is located in the ground-oriented housing development permit area, which encourages small scale infill projects that are complementary to the existing single-detached dwellings. The sites, located on Eighth Avenue between 12th and 13th streets, are currently occupied by single-family homes.
The proposed project includes a central courtyard and 25-off street parking spaces (22 for residents and three for visitors). As part of the application, the applicant must undertake a public consultation process that includes an open house, a presentation to the West End Residents’ Association, presentations to the city’s design panel and advisory planning commission and a public hearing.
