SITE & AREA CONTEXT
The site, which is currently vacant, is located in Downtown New Westminster in close proximity to transit, shops and services, schools and parks. The site is approximately 400m (5 minute walk) from Columbia Skytrain Station and a block from Agnes Street to the north and Columbia Street to the south, both are serviced by a number of buses (#103, 105, 109, 321, N19).
The site is also directly adjacent to Albert Crescent Park and less than a 10 minute walk to Tipperary Park and Westminster Pier Park along the waterfront. Proximity to both of these parks is a major asset and contributes to the livability of this location.
Ecole Qayqayt Elementary School, New Westminster City Hall, and shops and services along Columbia and Front Streets are all within walking distance of the site.
PROPOSAL FOR 51 ELLIOT
The proposal is for a rezoning and development permit to permit a 34-storey residential tower with strata and below-market rental homes, and a city-owned, not-for-profit childcare.
The notification flyer and newspaper ads incorrectly reference "non-market rental housing". The proposal is providing below-market rental housing.
