District of Squamish council will vote on a development permit for 134 townhomes for the next phase of Waterfront Landing project on Highway 99.
This would be the second phase of the proposal, with phase one for 88 townhomes approved by the council in December last year. Those townhomes are now under construction.
This new phase consists of 134 townhomes and fourplex units, ranging from 60 three-bedroom units and 74 two-bedroom units.
The developer, BOSA Properties, is also proposing a park in the centre of the development site. The L-shaped park provides informal grass and play areas and seating in the park.
A pedestrian bridge over the Mamquam Blind channel to connect the project to Downtown Squamish is also planned.
The proponents are also planning open space areas that provide connection through to the Waterfront Park, as well as areas for casual play.
The developer is proposing 329 parking spaces (311 unit spaces and 18 visitors parking) along with two car share vehicles in lieu of 10 parking spaces as permitted by the zoning.
When complete, the project on the former Interfor Mill site will include 900 homes and townhomes.
