^ Yes, and also a heritage permit. All three are done concurrently, but I think that the way CoV does things is getting to a level of preliminary approval for the rezoning and using the DP to work out the details.

Documents aren't up yet, but there is now a DP with Variances application live on the Tracker: https://tender.victo...Number=DPV00123

 

Revised drawings have been uploaded. Overall design and massing is still the same, the biggest changes are to the courtyard landscaping and the ground floor of the Scott building.

And compared to the first drawings posted by Kapten (which I now see are considerably different from what's on the table today!)

Those changes to the ground floor of the Scott Building are much better. I liked the previous design overall, but the amount of random black walls was weird. Looks like a lot less empty space on the ground floor of the new building as well. The eastern portion of the new building looks a lot wider, no? Would this mean more units?

^Agreed, the ground floor overall is much better. But I did like that lobby/atrium element bridging the two buildings in the previous design.

I can never understand why anyone would choose black as a cladding colour, especially for a residential building. Not only does it act as a heat sink, it also leads to expansion and contraction issues.

The new six-storey wood frame structure to the east of the Scott Building will be separated from the existing building in order for the heritage component of the project to be a visual focus from the surrounding streets.

 

The two buildings will frame a green central plaza, creating a pedestrian experience while allowing for intermittent vehicular access and short-term parking stalls. The central plaza will be accessible to the public and is intended to be enjoyed by both residents and visitors.

 

One and a half levels of underground parking will fill the east side of the site under the new building and plaza. The upper portion of the underground parkade will be allocated to commercial/retail staff, customers, and residential visitors. Beyond the staff and visitor parking, gated secured parking will be provided to ­building residents.
