A heritage house that had been temporary stored on 215 West 1st Avenue has been moved back to its original location at 35 West 6th Avenue.
The heritage designation of the Coulter House was approved by City Council at a Public Hearing on April 17, 2018. In return for the preservation and restoration of the Coulter House, Council granted an increase in density for the permitted office space on this site. The existing I-1 industrial zoning allowed for a Floor Space Ratio of 3.0, with 1.0 FSR for general office. The heritage designation allowed the office space component to go to 2.12 FSR (35,967 sq. ft). The overall FSR increased to 3.1 and there was a slight height increase from 60 feet (18.3 metres) to 72.5 feet (22.1 metres). The allowable area for a restaurant was increased by 33% to 2,152 sq. ft. or 200 sq. metres.
