    Construction activity for this project will have to comply with all City requirements related to noise and activity.  It is hard to predict construction timing and this would be a question best answered by the developer but usually it takes a year or two to get through the permit processes and complete all the agreements etc. before any type of construction can start.

    The City cannot control, in a case like this, what sites will be brought in for an application. It would be a decision made by individual property owners or developers. It should be noted that any adjoining strata sites are far less likely to be redeveloped than low density commercial sites such as the subject site because of the ownership complications.

    does the rezoning affect the appartments on the south side along joyce st.

    joe asked about 3 years ago

    Whether there is any impact is a matter which could vary from person to person. The project being north of the southern building would not create a shadow impact. There could be impacts related to the adjacency of the building which staff will look at. Of course during construction there will be impacts related to noise and construction activity. However, construction must adhere to the City's Noise-Control Bylaw.

    The existing laneway is not to be removed. There will be a narrow throat to access the building which Engineering staff are reviewing

    Engineering staff will assess the requirements for the site but typical canopies (as opposed to retail awnings) would generally be sufficient. Canopies are deeper and made usually of steel and glass as compare to awnings.

    Staff will be reviewing the design of the building with respect to all relevant policy, including the C-2 Guidelines. If changes are sought/desired then staff may require a revised application and/or include form of development conditions as recommendations for council’s consideration at a public hearing

    The project proposes to use the Transportation Demand Plan (TDM) provisions of the Parking By-law which allows for parking space reductions for sites located along transit lines and related criteria.
