On September 20, the District of Squamish council will vote on a Development Permit application for the first-phase of a mixed development on Centennial Way, close to the Brennan Park Recreation Centre.
The property is currently vacant.
The first phase will consist of a mixed-use light industrial, office, childcare and rental residential development, located at 1940 Centennial Way.
An Anthem Properties development, the property was earlier used as a campground and mini-golf site, formerly Whistle Punk Hollow Adventure RV Park, and Eagle Vista RV Resort. Anthem has a three-phase plan for the mixed-use development that aims for a “Neighbourhood Node” with homes, offices and child care close to the Brennan Park Recreation Centre.
Phase 1 is about 2.65 acres in size and will consist of three-buildings: A five-storey residential building, two light industrial buildings with 10 units, and a four-storey, 28,000 square feet office space and 2,400 square feet childcare facility for 25 children.
The residential building will have 80 residential units, of which 58 units will be purpose-built market rentals in perpetuity. The one to three-bedrooms units will range from 552 square feet to 880 square feet in size. Phase 1 also features an open space between three buildings with seating and open lawn areas, a play area, and BBQ and covered picnic area.
A surface parking lot provides parking for the light industrial building, and a partially sunken parkade will serve the residential and office buildings. The parking requirement was reduced from 224 to 194 spots as part of a Comprehensive Development Zone 90 (CD-90 Zone), which was adopted in July last year.
