The majority of suites in 1279 Nicola face south. The proposed building will not only block views but also completely block the light falling on many of suites.
The Developer is asking to go above the existing city bylaw height restrictions by a full two floors. It makes not sense to put such a big building on a such a small lot.
With new super towers all around us, does the West End need even more urban density? We love our quiet neighbourhood and don't want it to turn into Yaletown!
The negative impact of this development impacts neighbourhood significantly for only 5 units. Why not insist on more practical units for West End residents including rental and low income housing? Currently the house is a rental property, where will these people go?
Its pretty clear that this development is being rammed through in order to get it in front of the Director of Planning before the upcoming city election. Despite the fact that the application has been at the city since early 2018, the public consultation period is only 2 weeks. This means you need to act now!
