Updated:

Request

Quest Capital Inc has requested a substantive amendment to an approved development agreement to add new land, construct 2 300 unit buildings and change the commencement and completion dates.

Proposal

The applicant wishes to amend the development agreement to allow for:
•    The continuation of the existing 4 unit townhouse block
•    Add more lands to be regulated by the development agreement
•    2 residential buildings each containing 300 units (600 units in total)

One of the new buildings would be an apartment building, while the other is proposed to be shared housing with special care (similar to a nursing home). This is defined as a building that provides a level of care, such as housekeeping, meal preparation, personal care, help with medication, or nursing care, to residents because of cognitive, physical or behavioral limitations.

The applicant is requesting to extend the time for commencement and completion by 5 years.

Process

The application will be considered under a substantive amendment to a development agreement process.

Status

Planning staff are currently preparing the proposed amendments to the original development agreement (see link below) and the staff recommendation report for Council.

This application will go to Harbour East Marine Drive Community Council for a public hearing.
