360 Latoria proposed density and commercial component
Digging into Density
The application before Council proposes a density of approximately 225 dwellings per hectare (uph) at 360 Latoria Boulevard.
This is lower than the allowable density of 250 uph as envisioned in the Royal Bay Area Plan (p. 267):
Located at the confluence of Metchosin Road, Latoria Boulevard and Ryder Hesjedal Way, "the Commons Mixed-Use Village is intended to serve as the heart of the community, bringing visitors and residents together in a vibrant social setting.
An increase in residential density...allows for neighbourhoods to support services, community facilities and densities that are critical in realizing more complete communities. Permitted density within the Commons is up to 250 uph."
