Lamoureux Architecture Inc. has submitted an application to the City of North Vancouver to further amend the Comprehensive Development (CD)-684 Zone to allow for additional height and density to accommodate an event space with capacity to host up to 150 individuals. The applicant notes that the event space will be used by Alcuin College during school hours, and will be available to other users outside of school hours. The site is situated in Lower Lonsdale at the intersection of Mahon and Esplanade.
WHAT'S PERMITTED AT THE SITE?
The City of North Vancouver’s (CNV) Official Community Plan permits up to 2.6 FSR of density and specifies up to 6-storeys (18-19 meters or 59-62.3 feet) for residential uses at 63 Mahon Avenue. For non-residential uses, heights are to be regulated through the Zoning Bylaw, and the CNV notes that in considering increases in building heights, attention will be given to view impacts, contextual relationships and the livability or use of the buildings.
