Two multi-family developments proposed in College Heights

Two separate developers are looking to build projects on Southridge Avenue and O’Grady Road.

Two proposed multi-family developments will be going before city council on June 12 for rezonings.

Bic Hayer Rental Properties Corp. is seeking to rezone a lot at 6700 Southridge Ave., according to a public notice published by the City of Prince George. Currently the 2.85-hectare lot, located near the intersection with Marleau Road, has a large single-family home on it.

Under the proposed RM: 5 Multiple Residential zoning, the maximum density for the development would be 125 units per hectare, allowing a theoretical maximum of 356 units on the site. The development would be restricted to a maximum of four stories (or 15 metres) tall.

Troika Management Corp. and The Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Prince Rupert are seeking to rezone a portion of land located at 6100 O’Grady Rd. and 5958 Stringer Cres., directly across O'Grady Road from The Home Depot.

The proposed RM:6 Midrise Residential zoning would allow up to 140 units per hectare, with a maximum building height of 30 metres (approximately eight stories).

The two lots are a combined 22.85 ha. in size, however, only the undeveloped northwest section of the land facing onto O’Grady Road and Stringer Crescent are being proposed for rezoning. A City of Prince George public notice about the proposed rezoning did not indicate the size of the area to be rezoned for development.

The area of 6100 O'Grady Rd. to be rezoned appears to be the undeveloped section along O'Grady Road, according to a site map included in the proposed City of Prince George bylaw. The proposed change doesn't appear to affect the College Heights Residential Park, already in place on the site.

No further details about the size or design of the proposed projects were included in the notices.
