Council moves zoning change process ahead for Prince Rupert Boulevard proposal

The Prince Rupert Boulevard
and Drake Crescent area may be
the next site for potential housing
Another new housing development may be on the horizon for the city, as Prince Rupert City Council moved forward with a zoning request for a property on Prince Rupert Boulevard at Drake Crescent.

The zoning request will see the process move forward to the public information phase, where the proponent of the development Intrawest, is expected to outline further their plans for a mixed use housing plan for the lot.

City Planner Zeno Krekic provided the overview for Council, noting how the request to change the zoning to allow for a higher density of housing falls within the city's desires as part of their Official Community Plan.

He suggested that while the proponent will outline the full scope of the project as the process moves forward, the prospect for development could see both a four story building and town home concept used as part of the development .

You can review the full discussion related to the zoning process from the City's Video Archive, it starts at the 30 minute mark.
