West Mountain highrise in the works
It could be one of the tallest buildings on the southwest Mountain.
Valery Homes is looking to build a three- to 14-storey, 192-unit condominium highrise at 1670 Garth St., on the southwest corner of Garth and Rymal.
According to the city’s sign on the property, the development will include commercial space on the ground floor.
“I think 14 storeys might be a bit ambitious,” said Ward 8 Councillor Terry Whitehead, who is in the process of gathering public input on the proposal.
The second of two public meetings on the project is slated for May 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. at West Highland Baptist Church on Garth.
Whitehead said he has spoken to Valery Homes owner Ted Valeri and the developer has been co-operative when it comes to accepting public input.
