A proposal that has drawn a lot of interest to redevelop the Delta Shoppers Mall on Scott Road will be going to city council on Monday, Feb. 12 for consideration.
The application is to build a mixed-use high-rise development at the strip mall, located at 8037 to 8087 Scott Rd. The proposal includes four buildings ranging from six-to-32 storeys with 876 residential units.
The proposal also includes 10,572-square-metres of office space, 7,178-square-metres of commercial space as well as childcare space.
The site has been designed so that a central plaza with public spaces would be formed between the podiums of the towers.
According to the city, the application includes a housing agreement to ensure that the residential units in a proposed 10-storey building in the northwest corner of the property are for seniors, 55-years-old and up.
The city also notes the rezoning application is consistent with the Official Community Plan (OCP), so a public hearing is not required. The city is also stating that new provincial housing legislation prohibits municipalities from holding a public hearing for rezoning bylaw amendments for residential or mixed-use developments that are consistent with the relevant municipality’s OCP.
Located between the Delta Rise residential tower and the Real Canadian Superstore, the site’s current designation is for a mix of uses including retail and office commercial, multiple-family residential, recreation, cultural, public and open space.
Next Monday’s council meeting begins at 4 p.m. at Municipal Hall in Ladner and can also be seen online at the city's website: www.delta.ca.
