Two new industrial buildings are slated to be built at the business park, after council greenlit a development permit for a project dubbed the Summit Industrial Warehouses.
On Oct. 6, council voted unanimously in favour of granting a development permit to Tanavoli Investments Inc., Inc. No. BC1148817.
The permit will allow two single-storey industrial buildings with mezzanine space at 39399 and 39449 Queens Way, and could allow for up to 21 units in total.
This area is zoned I-ll business park industrial and the property is expected to give space to those types activities, such as alcoholic beverage manufacturing, vehicle services, building supply outlets and trade contractor facilities, among other things.
However, it’s unknown who the tenants will be at this time.
These structures will have a total gross floor area of 3,330 square metres, or 35,800 square feet.
The project requires 43 parking stalls, but proposes a total of 53 parking stalls. It also exceeds bicycle parking requirements by providing 31 bicycle spots. There will also be trip-end facilities in each unit that would allow people to shower and clean up after their ride.
“It was refreshing to read a report where all the targets were exceeded [rather] than maybe barely met, or struggling to achieve, or asking for variance,” said Coun. Armand Hurford.
Coun. Doug Race commended the extra parking, while Coun. John French added that the development would fit well with the uses in the area.
