We would like your feedback on a proposal for a 165 multi-unit residential development with a maximum height of six stories. The following are the key aspects of the proposal:

  • The proposal complies with the maximum six-storey height and maximum floor space ratio of 2.2 specified in the Official Community Plan (OCP) for the Medium Density Residential (Scott Road) (MDR(SR)) designation. However, an OCP amendment is requested to increase the maximum number of units per hectare.
  • Construction of 155 units in two six-storey apartment buildings, 10 units in two three-storey townhouse buildings and a two-storey private amenity building.
  • A mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom residential units ranging from 46.5 m2 (501 ft2) to 137.2 m2 (1,477 ft2) in size.
  • 31 adaptable units (meaning designed and built so that accessibility features can be added more easily and inexpensively after construction if required).
  • Private indoor and outdoor amenity spaces.
  • Two levels of underground parking with 240 parking spaces total. The parking would be accessed from a rear lane to the north.
  • A new half lane with one-way outbound access to 120 Street (right out only).
  • Removal of 75 trees to be replaced with 88 on-site trees, street trees and cash-in-lieu.


The Scott Road Corridor is designated for densification in the North Delta Area Plan using both a unit per hectare (UPH) and floor space ratio (FSR) approach for most land use designations. The Mayor's Housing Task Force for Scott Road was established in 2020 to provide recommendations on directions and specific initiatives to promote the development of diverse and affordable housing options in the Scott Road corridor area and add certainty regarding future land use. In its final report, the Task Force recommended that the UPH maximums be removed (density calculated solely by FSR). Additional details of the North Delta Area Plan and the Task Force’s recommendations for the Scott Road Corridor are available under "Applicable Bylaws and City Documents". Staff are currently reviewing the recommendations of the Task Force and related implementation processes.


In order to facilitate the proposed development, the following are required:

  • Official Community Plan Amendment to increase maximum allowable unit density from 200 units per hectare (UPH) to 227 UPH to permit an increase from 145 units to 165 units.
  • Rezoning from Duplex/Single Detached Residential 3 (RD3) to a new multi-unit residential zone to permit apartments and townhouses.
  • Development Permit to address the form and character based on the Scott Road Corridor (SRC) Development Permit Area guidelines.
  • Development Variance Permit to reduce minimum 5 m setback along 120 Street and 75A Avenue frontages to allow for architectural features (4.4 m) and canopies at building entrances (4 m).
  • A road closure of a portion of the rear laneway and consolidation with the subject properties to create one development site. Additional road dedication for a portion of the rear lane to the north is also proposed.


In response to physical distancing requirements related to COVID-19, Delta is holding a virtual Public Information Meeting with an online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person meeting for this project.


Please note that this application is at a preliminary stage and has not gone to Council for their consideration. Therefore, different aspects of the proposal may change as the application proceeds through the review process.
