A six-storey residential building will include 106 units with a mix of studios as well as one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.

There will be a total of 27 three-bedroom units, 25 per cent of the total units proposed.

The building will have two levels of underground parking, with 162 off-street parking spaces. In total, there will be 181 parking spaces, including 1.5 spaces per resident and 0.5 per visitor.

Although apartments along major corridors in Maple Ridge are limited to four storeys, a site-specific text amendment to the OCP, approved on Friday, June 23, will permit the construction of a six-storey building.

“Construction of a six-storey apartment residential building in the Transit Corridor Multi-Family designation of the Lougheed Transit Corridor Area Plan is supportable and will become a common form of development along Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road in future,” noted the document.

The proposed development will be a six-storey building with 121 residential units and 7,104 sq. ft. commercial space at the front of the building, facing Lougheed Highway.

The building will be located north of Lougheed Highway between 216 Street and 220 St.

In total, there will be 168 parking spaces for the development. This will include 121 off-street, underground parking spaces and 46 ground-level parking lot spaces.

Each resident will have one off-street parking stall per unit.

Units will include a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. There will be 27 two-bedroom units, 22 per cent of the total.

Residents expressed concerns about this development stating that such a development does not fit into the character of the neighbourhood as surrounding properties are either single or two-storey homes.

In response, the developer said that the building will be “fenced with a six-foot tall privacy fence and generous shrubs to screen adjacent properties.”

The commercial space will be divided into five to six spaces which could accommodate a financial institute, convenience store or business. A restaurant could possibly be added but modifications will be required to accommodate ventilation, the developer said during the July 4 council meeting.
