CPAC meeting, Nov. 7 — St. Andrews United Church OCP and Rezoning Amendments
Coming up for review at the Community Planning Advisory Committee (CPAC) meeting on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 7:00 pm, City Hall:
OCP and rezoning amendments proposed for the St. Andrews United Church site at 2318 St. Johns Street.
The proposal includes 55 new residential units intended for affordable housing geared to income, as well as space for non-profits Kinsight, Share, and the church.
Catalyst Community Developments Society in partnership with St. Andrews United Church has submitted an OCP Amendment and Rezoning Application for the properties located at 2318 St. Johns Street. The application proposes a mixed-use development within a four storey building form, that includes 55 affordable housing units, approximately 2,200m2 (23,680ft2) of office space intended for use by Kinsight and SHARE and a new church building of approximately 540m2 (5,812.5ft2).”
“In total 55 affordable rental units are proposed, with 11 studios; 31 one-bedroom homes; 10 two-bedroom homes; and three three-bedroom homes. Residential units are proposed within the upper two storeys of the building fronting onto St. Johns Street and stacked townhomes that front onto Spring Street. Rents are targeted to low- and moderate-income households, including a diverse mix of single-parent, family and single persons, with gross household annual incomes ranging from $30,000 for studios to $72,000 for three bedroom homes (as of 2017).”
The plan is for rental rates geared to 30% of household income.
“Based on the Zoning Bylaw vehicle parking requirements a total of 141 parking spaces are required. A total of 102 parking spaces are proposed representing a requested parking reduction of 39 spaces.”
