Council approves 52-unit condo

A brand-new ‘green’ building is slated for development along the Island Highway

A brand-new ‘green’ building is slated for development along the Island Highway.

Council approved a building permit for a 52-unit multi-family residential condominium development at 220 South Island Highway during last week’s Tuesday city council meeting.

The four-storey development is expected to include an underground parking lot with a green roof over the parkade.

“The proposed development will provide 1,450 metres squared of outdoor recreational space onsite which equates to approximately 27 metres squared per unit,” said Ian Buck, city planner, in a report to council. “Private balconies for each unit are proposed in addition to the communal outdoor space.”

The condos will be located within a risk slope area but do not pose a threat to the landscape.

“Geotechnical reports in 2006, 2007 and 2011 confirm that the current location is not a slope stability concern,” said Denise Kors of Kors Development Services.

The current vegetation along the slope on the top of the bank behind the building will remain intact but there will be new landscaping around the development, primarily with grassy areas behind the property and shrubs and trees along the front, said Buck.

The development is scheduled to be completed in six phases with phase one including the construction of eight units.
