Yeah, like the neighbourhood's concerns about this project will be assuaged by knocking off 3 meters of height.

The project has been reduced to five storeys and includes a commercial component.

Another rendering :


From BGNA:

“Key Revisions Include:
• A reduction in the number of storeys from six storeys to five, to align with the Local Area Plan, and a reduction in the number of units from 82 homes to 72 homes (including 51 new, affordable, studio, one and two-bedroom suites)
• Modifications to the main floor and sidewalk along Gorge Road to include a commercial coffee outlet.


Yup, a whopping 14 sq. m coffee counter with two chairs. I assume that there is also access to the area marked "lounge," but really this is nothing more than allowing the public to hang out in your building's lobby.

The approved design contains ten fewer units than the initial design, which was a storey taller (six-storeys).

Thank goodness this was reduced from 6 floors to 5. Now the sky will be visible again. <_<
