What Will It Look Like?
We don’t know exactly what the development will look like yet. Design drawings and conceptual images will come later if we proceed with this process.
Right now, we can get a good idea of what it may look like by what’s already on Cave Ave.
The purpose of this district is to provide for low to medium density residential development while preserving the forest edge along the south side of Cave Avenue. Uses can include duplex, triplex, fourplex, and stacked row housing.
Development Regulations for the Cave Avenue District in the Land Use Bylaw:
- Floor Area Ratio (FAR) is the ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the piece of land it’s on. The maximum FAR in this district for stacked row housing is .60.
- The maximum site coverage is up to 55% for stacked row houses, provided certain conditions are met, like the amount of parking provided below grade and storm water management systems.
- The maximum height is 2.5 storeys (9 m).
- A tree buffer must be retained along Cave Ave.
- Onsite parking is required. Bylaw 380, which deals with apartment housing parking, does not apply to this project.
The Land Use Bylaw also regulates building setbacks, architectural design, the number of bedrooms per dwelling and landscaping.
