The public will get to weigh in on a proposed six-storey, 105-unit apartment building that would replace five properties in Esquimalt’s West Bay neighbourhood.
The majority (64) of the 105 apartments will be 540 square-foot one-bedrooms, with the remaining units including smaller studios and larger two- and three-bedrooms.
The development would have 87 parking spaces, with seven of those reserved for visitors. Staff recommended the application include at least a ratio of 0.9 parking spaces per residential unit, but in its updated proposal, Wexford has upped its ratio from 0.79 to 0.82. All parking stalls will be electrified.
The development would include a free year of Modo Car Share and a one-year bus pass for residents, an internal bike-share program, and about 130 bike parking spots. The developer will also give residents up t0 $500 for an electric bike or up to $250 for a regular bicycle.
