A new mid-rise development in Cedar Hill, 38 units on four-plus floors, replacing three existing (non-heritage!) houses on a total of about 0.3 hectares. Located at the top of the hill, and backing onto Cameron Heights (at the bottom of the hill), this will add to the apartment rental stock, and the upper units will have nice views of downtown and Cameron Heights. And about a 100m walk to the LRT station.

The variances were approved and a demolition permit has been issued, no building permit yet.

Not much heritage value in those homes -- and if I recall correctly, there was a murder at one of those houses 10 years ago or so. I'm sure the owner was all too happy to get rid of it!

Nice little project. I hope that they add 1 or 2 more floors to this project

For this location I'm not sure they need extra height now. The scale is pretty perfect for that location

Looks like more than half the site is taken up by a parking lot.

This is what happens with many mid-rise projects that use surface parking. And that's in spite of the fact that this project has slightly less parking than the zoning bylaw minimum.
