Third high-rise pitched for Delta

Information meeting takes place later this month

Another high-rise proposal for Scott Road is back on council’s radar.

A public information meeting will take place this month on an application to build a 32-storey building in the 9500 block of Scott Road by Satish Sharma. It would have 224 residential units with 1,356 square feet of commercial floor area. Access is proposed from 95A Avenue and the majority of parking would be underground. The meeting will take place Thursday, Feb. 21 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Seniors Centre.

Meantime, a proposal to build yet another high-rise along Scott Road will also be back on council’s plate.

That application by Arzone Real Estate Investments Ltd. and Hari Homes Inc. to build a 35-storey residential building at the corner of 120 Street and 75A Avenue had been on hold by the applicant since last May, but according the City of Delta it “is now active.”

The high-rise would have 294 units, commercial and a daycare space, as well as several townhouse units at the ground level of the development.

Staff note the application is still in the review stage which includes public consultation.

The application continues to get a lot of negative feedback from area residents including additional names recently added on a petition to council.

Delta already got its first skyscraper with the new Delta-Rise residential tower. That 37-storey tower at 80 Avenue and Scott Road consists of more than 300 units on top and four floors of office and retail space.
