The revised proposal will be considered by the North West Planning Advisory Committee at a virtual meeting to be held on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
Application by WM Fares Architects, on behalf of Cascade Property Group Limited, to amend an existing development agreement at 26 Walker Service Road, Lower Sackville to change from 1 multi-unit residential building with 52 units and 34 townhouse units on a new public street to two multi-unit residential buildings and two existing single-unit dwellings, for a total of 114 units on the site.
The subject site at Civic #26 Walker Service Road, Lower Sackville is made up of 4 separate parcels (PID 40695561, 40706822, 40699829 and 40124398 – see Zoning Map). The existing (approved) development agreement allows for a 52-unit residential apartment building, 34 townhouse units on a new public street off Walker Service Road, a single-unit dwelling and a small public park.
The proposal is to amend the Development Agreement to allow for two 4-storey residential apartment buildings, each containing approximately 56 dwelling units, in the centre of the site and the retention of the two existing single unit dwellings. The public street has been removed from the proposal. A public park component has been re-introduced into the proposal as a result of feedback from staff and the public. The driveway entrance off Walker Service Road has been revised to align with that shown in the Traffic Impact Statement. A landscaping plan for the site will be provided at a later date. The revised proposal results in a slight increase in the population density (9%) for the overall development.
The application will be considered under the Substantive Amendment to Development Agreement process.
The revised proposal will be considered by the North West Planning Advisory Committee at a virtual meeting to be held on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 700 p.m.
Information letters were mailed to neighbouring residents and property owners in June of 2020, seeking feedback on the proposal.
