Heritage Revitalization Agreement Bylaw No. 8379, 2023 and Heritage Designation Bylaw No. 8380, 2023 for 802 & 806 Eighth Street and 809 Eighth Avenue
Heritage Revitalization Agreement (HRA) and Heritage Designation Bylaw applications have been received for 802 & 806 Eighth Street and 809 Eighth Avenue. The project would protect and restore a 1929 heritage house, which will be relocated on-site. In exchange, the HRA would allow subdivision and construction of three new townhouse buildings. A total of 18 residential units are proposed, including four accessible studio units and 14 family-friendly units. An overall Floor Space Ratio of 1.08 is proposed. Smaller lot sizes, higher densities, minor increases to building heights, and construction of the townhouse units are among the primary Zoning Bylaw relaxations proposed by the HRA. Several minor siting relaxations are also being requested.
