A 12-storey luxury development is proposed for the corner of Oxford Street and Thrift Avenue in White Rock.

Twelve storeys proposed for White Rock

Developer expects project's proposed height 'to be a lightning rod' for some.

Another highrise is being eyed for White Rock.

Mitch Evanish of MPW Projects Ltd. said Friday his company has applied to build a 12-storey, 17-unit luxury condominium complex on three lots at the corner of Oxford Street and Thrift Avenue.

Evanish said the proposed development is hoped to attract a high-end market.

“The top six floors are one unit per floor, and they’re about 3,700 square feet,” he said.

The next five floors are to have two units each, and “most parking will be underground.”

“It’s going to be hopefully pretty exclusive,” Evanish said.

Evanish acknowledged the proposed height could face some opposition.

“Twelve storeys will be a lightning rod for some people,” he said. “We’ve certainly got some positive feedback from others.”

For the project to proceed, an amendment to the site’s designation under the official community plan is required, as is rezoning and a major development permit.

A public information meeting is set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. July 15 at Centennial Arena.
