No Development Permit Board Review for 2220 Kingsway

The 410 residential units planned for 2220 Kingsway will constitute one of the four largest developments — existing (2300 Kingsway) or anticipated (2400 Motel, Purdy’s at Earles Street) — along the Norquay stretch of Kingsway.

The email below from City of Vancouver, regarding the development permit application for 2220 Kingsway, has been sent to unspecified persons and is posted here for public record and continuing access. The referred-to pdf file — Approval with Conditions Letter — [a one-page cover letter with twelve pages of conditions] was directed to the project developer on 9 September 2013.

Further comment at Eye on Norquay is anticipated regarding

       Conditions of development
       Lack of project review by the Development Permit Board

The step of review at the Development Permit Board is one of only three usual opportunities for public comment on a development project: (1) Open house for the project (2) Public hearing at City Council (3) Review by Development Permit Board.
