A three-storey

White Rock gives go-ahead to Royal Avenue project

The former site of a single-family home that had been converted to law offices will soon be home to a three-storey residential development.

The former site of a single-family home that had been converted to law offices will soon be home to a three-storey residential development.

White Rock council voted unanimously last month to approve a development permit for the project, eyed for 15219 Royal Ave., following consideration of the application at the Oct. 6 land-use meeting.

In recommending council approve the permit, the city’s director of planning and development services noted all aspects of the proposal meet the requirements of the Official Community Plan and existing zoning; as well, it complies with form and character requirements outlined for the Lower Town Centre.

According to city documents, the property owner plans to build four units with a roof deck over one level of underground parking at the site.

In response to recommendations from the advisory design panel, the building’s nautical theme was softened by reducing its front ‘bow’. As well an elevator was added to the design; the rear staircase will be enclosed; and one of eight parking stalls has been removed.
