A date for consideration of the Development Permit by Council has not been determined at this time.
March 2022 Update
Since the Design Review Committee (DRC) considered the proposal in September 2021, the applicant has taken a new approach to the architectural expression and massing of the building in response to the committee's recommendation. The DRC considered the current design concepts and directions of the proposal at its March 9, 2022 meeting and passed the following motion:
"That the Design Review Committee received the concept materials favourably for the 2452 to 2496 Marine Drive development permit application and the committee was in agreement with the general design direction and look forward to further development of the application."
The applicant has indicated that it will continue working on preparing a complete submission of the development proposal which will then be referred back to the DRC at a future meeting for its consideration (date to be determined).
Other advisory committee meetings will be scheduled and this page will be updated once meeting dates are confirmed.
A date for Council consideration of the development permit has not been determined at this time.
September 2021 Update
The proposal was reviewed by the DRC on September 21, 2021. The Committee recommended a resubmission of the proposal and outlined a number of items for the applicant to address. Minutes of the meeting will be posted once approved by the DRC.
Further, based on the resubmission request by the DRC, consideration of the proposal by the North Shore Advisory Committee on Disability Issues (ACDI) will be postponed until a resubmission is considered by the DRC.
