835 Royal Avenue (Brow of the Hill)

Proposed Development

An application has been received to facilitate a six-unit residential development through a Heritage Revitalization Agreement. The house on the front of the site would become a duplex (with a rental suite in one of the units) and a three unit townhouse would be built at the rear of the site. The other house currently on the site would be relocated or demolished. The agreement would permit Zoning Bylaw relaxations for greater overall floor space ratio (density), smaller front yard and courtyard setbacks for the townhouse, and a reduction of two parking spaces (visitor and rental unit). In exchange for these Zoning relaxations, the 1883 house would be fully restored and protection through a Heritage Designation Bylaw.
