A roomy storage unit inside a White Rock apartment building will be converted into a one-bedroom apartment.

The idea was given final approval last week after council was told the idea drew no comment, positive or negative, at a Feb. 6 public hearing.

The city’s land use and planning committee endorsed the idea after getting assurances the unit was more than 600 square feet in size, meeting minimum municipal limits.

The owner of the 20-unit apartment building at 15281 Royal Ave. will have to provide one more off-street parking space to accommodate the new suite as required under the 1978 land-use contract between the city and builder.
