Project Name: 8A Avenue Townhouses (South Grove Homes)
Location: 5361, 5375, 5385 8A Avenue
File Number: LU008552


June 27, 2018:  The application has been revised by removing the property at 846 53A Street from the proposal and reducing the total number of proposed townhouse dwelling units from 38 to 32.  The proposed residential density of 38 uph (15 upa) remains the same.  A variance for the height of a principal building in the Townhouse Residential 40 (RT40) zone is still being requested; however, overall height of the proposed three-storey buildings has been reduced by 0.5 m (2 ft) to 10.5 m (34 ft).  The applicant’s request to vary the front setback on the 8A Avenue frontage has been withdrawn such that the proposal complies with the front setback requirements of the proposed zone.  Drawings showing the revisions to site layout, building design, landscaping and tree retention can be viewed below.
