The City of Nanaimo has received a development application calling for the construction of two five-storey condo buildings at 6540 Metral Dr., beside Cobs Bread bakery.

According to plans submitted to the city by De Hoog Kierulf Architects on behalf of Windley Contracting, one condo building would be 6,367 square metres and would have 41 one-bedroom units and 32 two-bedroom units. The second building would be 3,043 square metres and would feature 17 one-bedroom units and 15 two-bedroom units. Both buildings require height variances. A 105-square-metre commercial space is also planned for one of the buildings and each building will have underground parking.

A Vancouver developer is looking to build a highrise condo tower in downtown Nanaimo.

Wertman Development Corporation has purchased two properties on Chapel Street with the vision of building a tower of 20 or more stories.

The company hasn’t yet submitted a development permit application, but thinks that step could happen in mid-January.

The old proposal of the Georgia view towers both zoned for 20 stories. With the land prices in Vancouver so expensive. Developers are heading to the island especially Victoria but Nanaimo also.

Quote:
Two 20-storey condos, referred to as Georgiaview Towers, have been envisioned for a 1.27-hectare patch of vacant land on 6340 McRobb Ave.

A video posted on www.georgiaviewtowers.com shows renderings of two high-rise condominiums on the property. The video also shows the spectacular views that would be provided to tenants, should the towers be built.

A proposed development which would transform the northern gateway to Nanaimo is one of three projects set to significantly boost housing stock in the city's north end.

The City is reviewing a permit application for a three building, 146-unit rental apartment development on the empty lot at 6975 Island Highway North, behind the Woodgrove Crossing Shopping Centre.

Lainya Rowett, the City's manager of current planning, said the four-storey buildings would add a long-awaited street presence on a "gateway property."

"People being able to live there and have access to surrounding services, employment centres, retail...Trying to build a more complete community in this urban node is something we've been looking at for a long time."

She anticipated a development permit would come before Council soon. Councillors will be asked to approve a parking variance, reducing the number of stalls from the required 243 to 171. The developer indicated potential for a phase two development on the same lot in the future.

Rowatt said the property was previously zoned for commercial use, which would have prompted the need for improvements on Mary Ellen Dr. However, a residential development would draw less traffic and the only access to the site is off the Island Highway.

Meanwhile, two other notable north end projects are progressing.

On Jan. 15, Council approved a development permit for a four-storey, 59-unit rental project at 5085 Uplands Dr. A parking variance allowing for 30 less spaces than required was also approved for the development behind Northridge Village.

Rowatt said the north end of the city didn't see as much rental stock added in recent years and what was built was snapped up quickly. She said adding residential density in commercial cores, close to transit, is critical as Nanaimo grows.

"Having that kind of rental density here and a mix of unit types to cater to a variety of demographics is really exciting."

Staff are also reviewing an application for two, five-storey buildings with 98 multi-family units and some commercial space at 6540 Metral Dr., across from Home Depot.

Nanaimo city council approves north-end rental building
Four-storey building to be built near Turner Road and Uplands Drive intersection

Quote:
Nanaimo city councillors approved a development application for a four-storey, 59-unit rental apartment building on 5085 Uplands Dr., near Turner Road, during a council meeting on Jan. 15.

Submitted by Victoria-based architecture firm, KPL James Architecture Ltd., the 1,417-square metre building will feature one- and two-bedroom units, three studio units, secure bicycle storage, underground parking and is located near a bus stop at the corner of Uplands Drive and Turner Road.


The development was forced to come before council as the owners, Westurban Holdings Group Ltd., requested a number of variances including increasing the building’s height from 14 metres to 16.4 metres and reducing the number of off-street parking spaces from 97 to 68.

Dale Lindsay, director of community development, told councillors that the lot the development would be built on is an unusual shape. He said on-street parking will be constructed on Uplands Drive.

“As a result of this development, frontage works and services will be triggered, so that will mean that the completion of gutter, curb, sidewalk, street lighting,” he said. “As part of those works, the ultimate design of Uplands will allow on street parking. So, there will be … in the neighbourhood of 18 and 20 on-street parking stalls that will be added that are currently not available at this time.”

Coun. Sheryl Armstrong said she was in favour of the development, despite the fact that parking is often a concern for her.

“I know parking is always an issue for me but on this one I do note that there will be one spot per unit, so I will support it because I think that not everybody has two vehicles.”

Coun. Bill Bestwick told councillors while he generally doesn’t like parking variances, he was fine with the developer’s request because it would be wrong to reject the proposal when there is a lack of affordable housing options in the city.

“I am not a big fan of when we do parking variances, I never have been. But in the the direction that we seem to be wishing to go, I don’t think we can deny the opportunities to house people as reasonable and as affordable as possible,” he said.
