Port Alberni: Construction has started on a 22 unit BC Housing project.
A building permit with a value of $6,337,468 has been issued to Island West Coast Developments Ltd. for this new Second Stage Supportive Housing. The project will consist of a two-storey residential building with 22 units ranging from studios to three-bedroom units located at 4440 Vimy Street. Sage Haven Society will manage the new housing.
Ucluelet: Wild Pacific Camp proposes eight two storey cabins.
A development permit application for a Resort Condo development on Spring Cove is expected to be approved at this week’s council meeting. The property currently contains the Wild Pacific Camp RV campground with 6 serviced RV spaces and a yurt-styled office building. The proposal is to build 6 two storey cabins and one two storey duplex following the existing RV campground locations to limit the disturbance of existing trees and ground cover. The prefabricated units are intended as vacation cabins under 700 sq.ft. each.
Courtenay: Proposed nine unit work-live housing development.
The City has received OCP and Zoning amendment applications to rezone a property at the corner of McPhee and 8th Street for a nine unit dynamic housing development. The nine dwelling units are proposed as three triplexes. Each unit is proposed to include a 300 sq ft ‘flex’ space on the first floor fronting McPhee Avenue and 8th Street and 300 sq.ft. private roof decks. The applicant is proposing a range of uses for the ‘flex’ spaces, including home office, small art studio, hairdresser, physio office, a long term residential micro suite or an extra bedroom. If approved, in between the buildings would be a mix of public and private amenity space. The private space is envisioned for resident gatherings and communal celebrations while the public space could be used as a ‘pop-up’ to showcase artwork or for holding small events. The .303 acre vacant property is currently zoned industrial and was purchased in May 2022 for $500,000.
