320 McRae/315 Tweedsmuir

The 320 McRae/315 Tweedsmuir proposal that was approved over a year ago has come in with a re-submitted design. The key difference from the approved version to this is the relocation of the parklet further south, which consolidates two garage entrances. The height remains the same, though there are some smaller tweaks. Click the .pdf file below to see the new site plan. The full application will be available on the City's web site soon.
