CIVIC ADDRESS: 14825/35 Thrift Avenue


Bylaw 2130 proposes a change in the Official Community Plan designation for the properties located at 14825/35 Thrift Avenue from ‘Multi-Unit Residential – Low Density’ to ‘Multi-Unit Residential – High Density.’

Bylaw 2131 proposes a change in the zoning of the property from ‘RS-1 One Unit Residential Zone’ to ‘CD-51 Comprehensive Development Zone.’ If approved, these changes will allow the construction of a 12-storey, 33-unit residential development at 14825/35 Thrift Avenue.

Bylaw 2135 proposes a Phased Development Agreement (PDA) to secure the community amenity contribution and regulate the phasing of the proposed project at 14825/35 Thrift Avenue. The PDA would have the effect of freezing the Specified Bylaw Provisions in regard to the subject lands for the ten (10) year term.

If adopted, proposed Phased Development Agreement Bylaw, 2016, No. 2135 would authorize the City and the Developer (Forge) to enter into a PDA under the Local Government Act, that, among other details, would have the following terms and conditions:

  • Have a term of ten (10) years from the reference date of this agreement;
  • Specified Bylaw Provisions means all those provisions of the Zoning Amendment Bylaw, 2016, No. 2131 that are applicable to the subject lands, as of the reference date of the PDA (being the date of adoption of the PDA Bylaw);
  • Assignment: After the City receives all payments and security as set out in the PDA, Forge shall be entitled to assign the PDA or to effect or allow a Change of Control without the prior written consent of the City provided such assignee enters into an assumption agreement with the City whereby the assignee agrees to be bound by the terms of the PDA.

Further details regarding the application may be obtained from the City’s Planning and Development Services Department at City Hall or by contacting (604) 541-2136 |
