4441 Piccadilly North (Gentles Cottage)

The District has received a formal Heritage Revitalization Agreement (HRA) application at 4441 Piccadilly North. As proposed, the HRA would allow for:

  • renovation of the existing residence on site (Gentles Cottage) allowing for five rental suites within the residence;
  • construction of 8 multi-family residential units on the western portion of the site (2 duplexes and 4 townhouses); and
  • protect the property with a heritage designation.

The applicant previously held a preliminary public information meeting on June 27, 2019.

The Heritage Advisory Committee supported the proposal on November 26, 2019, provided that minor revisions are addressed to the satisfaction of District staff.

The proposal was considered by the Design Review Committee (DRC) on December 5, 2019. The DRC requires resubmission of the proposal. The architect is required to address and clarify a number of design aspects. Eventually, the DRC will reconsider the project, however the date is yet to be determined.

The HRA will eventually be considered by Council. Accordingly, there will be opportunities for further public input as the proposal advances.
