A highrise retirement building proposed for White Rock’s town centre will be four storeys higher than planned, should it be approved.

Last week representatives from PARC Retirement Living presented an update on the project – for an independent seniors’ rental residence and ground-level storefront businesses – to the city’s economic investment committee.

Following discussions with city staff in recent months, proponents say they have adjusted the building’s plans to be “taller and thinner,” at a height of 23 storeys, rather than the 19 originally proposed in December, in an effort to reduce the building’s footprint on the three lots at 1564 and 1554 Johnston Rd. and 1563 George St.

The town centre is pre-zoned for up to 265 feet (25 storeys) in height.

According to the developer’s presentation, a development permit is expected to be resubmitted to the city next week, with a public-information meeting tentatively scheduled for May 24.
