District of North Vancouver council will soon be discussing plans to redevelop the Black Bear Pub in Lynn Valley. Chris Dikeakos Architects Inc. has applied to develop this site.
The application as submitted proposes 98 rental apartments and approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial space in a six-storey building.
There will be parking for 108 vehicles in an underground parkade. There will be 74 spots for residents, and there will be 34 shared visitor-retail spots as well as 195 bicycle storage spaces.
The site is at the southwest corner of Lynn Valley Road and Valley Centre Avenue and is currently occupied by the Black Bear Pub and surface parking for the pub and Lynn Valley Centre Shopping Mall.
A new pedestrian and cycle greenway is proposed through the site, as envisioned in the Lynn Valley Town Centre Flexible Planning Framework.
