Hollyburn – 13th & Lonsdale OCP

The public hearing for this application is coming before Council on October 24th.  There has been much opposition to this proposal – the OCP amendment is to amend the height from 120 feet to 190 feet (19 storeys).  The Tower will have commercial space and 144 rental apartments.    The proposal includes the purchase of density from the City’s density bank (22,186 sq ft) at the rate of $90/ sq ft.   A bargain in today’s market.

Attached is a mailout prepared by a group of residents opposed to the proposal.   Concerns are listed on this attachment: 1301-lonsdale-mailout-final
