Polygon Homes have applied for a development permit for a mixed-use building on Third Avenue that also proposes a neighbourhood park as a public amenity. The 12,500 square feet community park will be located at the corner of Pemberton Ave and Eaglewind Blvd.
The development permit would allow a mixed-use building with a three-storey parkade, ground floor commercial and three apartment buildings ranging from six to seven stories at 38201 Third Avenue, the site of the Cedars and Manor building.
Polygon proposes 220 units, a mix of one-bedroom, one-bedroom and den and two-bedroom units. The developer is also providing 432 parking stalls for the development.
District received the rezoning application for 38201 Third Avenue in 2017. Polygon formed a partnership with the Squamish Senior Citizens Housing Society, and agreed to buy the property in exchange for building Westwinds, the new seniors housing development at 38275 Third Avenue.
Polygon had agreed to not proceed with development until Westwind was building and current residents had moved there. The applicant will also provide $3.65 million in Community Amenity Contributions.
