An Alternative to the Cressey Proposal

This is what Cressey wants to build

A balanced approach, apartment-style and ground-oriented rentals

 

The design you see above was commissioned by the Cedar Cottage Area Neighbours, CCAN. It proposes a win-win scenario.  There is a more modest apartment building with it’s parking entrance off Commercial Drive and ground-oriented, family rental row house style dwellings on the rest of the lot. This allows for open space, gardens perhaps, an oasis of nature with a natural water feature. Also, this plan would allow for much better tree retention. This proposal fits with City policies, the Cressey proposal does not.
