City issues development permit for five-story condominium on Haliburton – Nanaimo News Bulletin

Nanaimo City Council will authorize the construction of a five-story condominium on Haliburton Street near downtown.

Council, at a meeting on December 6, unanimously voted to issue a development permit for a 38-unit building at 41 and 45 Haliburton Street between Crace and Finlayson streets.

The request came from Parkshore Projects Ltd. in the name of a numbered company. Parkshore built a residential project on Haliburton last year and received approval for two more in the neighborhood earlier this year.

The development approved last week, called Lumina, consists of 21 one-bedroom condos, 12 two-bedroom suites, and five studio suites, and there will be underground parking. To qualify for the additional density on the property, the applicant is proposing additional features including public art, “green” walls on two sides of the building, four accessible units, and a building design that will exceed the code.

The Council accepted a height variation from 14 meters to 15.8 m. A staff report noted that about half of the gap was to install a guardrail surrounding a rooftop patio garden. The report also mentioned that the building’s fourth and fifth floors would be set back an additional three meters from Haliburton Street, “reducing the building’s perceived height from the street frontage.”

“I’m not a big fan of the height differences. In this case, due to the style of the roof – it is essentially the railing that is above [the allowable height] – I think this is appropriate, ”said Coun. Ben Geselbracht.
