The following images are courtesy of Adam Clark, Senior Planner at the Planning Department. The accompanying interpretive text was written by Hal Jaeger, member of the Olde Berlin Town Neighbourhood Association Heritage & Development Committee.
The image above provides examples of the buildings that could be built in the proposed Mixed Use 2 zone (MIX-2) along Victoria St N, between Ellen and St Leger, following the October 2019 proposed zoning regulations, which include:
-a 7.5m minimum yard setback abutting a residential zone,
-a 12m maximum height within 15m of a lot with a low-rise residential zone,
-a maximum height of 20m,
-a maximum of 6 storeys, and
-a maximum Floor Space Ratio of 3 (Floor Space Ratio is a measure of building volume. It is calculated by dividing the total built floor by the lot area.)
The numbers on the land represent the lot area, in square metres. The three and four-digit numbers on the buildings represent areas of respective floorplates. The small number, written to one or two decimal places, is the Floor Space Ratio (FSR).
The image above shows the shadowing that would be produced by buildings that could be built in the Mixed Use 3 (MIX-3) zone along Weber St W, between Queen and Young, following the October 2019 proposed zoning regulations. The shadowing is modelled on September 21, one of the equinox dates. Less shadowing is produced mid-summer and more mid-winter.
