Comment on Development Application DE418941 under RM-7 Zoning
23 May 2015
We are pleased to see one of the few heritage buildings in Norquay being restored. The plan to renovate and convert the existing grocery into a coffee shop will bring a welcome improvement to the neighbourhood.
While we support this application, we would like to register two concerns:
1. No on-site parking serves either residential or commercial units.
2. The infill unit behind the existing building seems very large, and will loom over and detract from the heritage unit.
While relaxations are necessary in order to incentivize restoration, but their impacts should be mitigated to the fullest extent possible.
