The proposal at 7597 120 Street by local developer Hari Homes, and designed by Barnett Dembek Architects Inc., is a partnership with BC Housing, bringing a total of 335 homes, including 70 affordable homes for first-time homebuyers and middle-income families and individuals, and 66 units that accommodate people with disabilities.

The unit mix is 151 one-bedroom units, 178 two-bedroom units, and six townhouses.

There will also be 885 sq. ft. of commercial space, 2,949 sq. ft. of childcare space, and an outdoor play area of 3,213 sq. ft.

Four underground levels will contain 554 vehicle parking stalls for all users, with this figure providing 77 stalls in excess of municipal guidelines.

These latest details are based on a revised design of a previous proposal.

The project’s next public hearing is scheduled for November 26, 2019.
