Parksville council has granted a development permit to facilitate a three-storey mixed-use building at 154 Weld Street.
The building features 172 square metres of commercial space on the ground floor and four two-bedroom residential units on the upper storeys, according to a report by Blaine Russell, the city’s director of community planning and building.
“It’s really nice to see this development take place. That’s been an empty spot and kind of a sore spot on Weld Street,” said Coun. Al Greir.
It is not clear if the residential units will include rentals, Russell said.
Based on the floor area of the building, seven parking spaces are required, according to Russell’s report. Six parking spaces are to be provided on-site, including one space for persons with disability. The requirement for one parking space will be satisfied through a $9,800 payment to the city in lieu of the space.
