Two public information sessions regarding neighbourhood redevelopment proposals are being hosted by the developers. These are not public hearings, but presentations that describe the proposals, and offer the chance for discussion and questions.
Mountain Court redevelopment proposed
Polygon Development 251 is proposing to consolidate and redevelop the Mountain Court property at 1241‐1277 East 27th Street, along with the neighbouring triplex at 1295‐1289 East 27th Street. A public information meeting regarding the proposal is being held at Kiwanis Lynn Manor Auditorium (2555 Whiteley Court) on Wednesday, December 10 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The following is excerpted from the development information package:
The proposal consists of four buildings with five story massing and a total of 321 residential units. Three of the buildings will be comprised of 246 market condominium homes, and one building will be comprised of 75 rental apartment homes.
As per the Lynn Valley Implementation Plan, the development integrates the proposed road network with Lynn Valley Mall to the north. This road will bisect the site and create two new lots, which are further divided by an east/west pedestrian ROW. A new municipal street will run east/west along the southern end of the site and will ultimately serve as a connection between Whiteley Court and Mountain Highway.
The architecture of the development is defined as contemporary urban design in a West Coast context. It is designed to fit into the Lynn Valley community and provides a unique neighbourhood feeling. Parking will be underground accessed from two points.
