Whistler residents will have their first opportunity to share input on the enhanced rezoning process for the Northlands development at a virtual open house this evening.
The event kicks off at 5 p.m. and runs until 7:30.
A community survey will also launch today for residents to provide feedback.
The Northlands development—comprised of 4500 Northlands Blvd., 4711 Settebello Dr., and 4700 Blackcomb Way north of Whistler Village—is the largest remaining undeveloped piece of land in Whistler’s core village area.
The site’s current zoning allows for a nine-storey hotel with a Phase 2 rental pool covenant, along with density for indoor recreation and employee housing, and the lands are identified as being in the Whistler Village Core Commercial Area in Whistler’s Official Community Plan, which allows for visitor and residential accommodation as well as commercial, recreational and institutional uses.
A restrictive covenant on title provides for a maximum of 837 bed units on the primary site, while a secondary lot has 48 bed units committed for employee housing.
The six hectares or so of land located at 4700 Blackcomb Way (bordering Fitzsimmons Creek) will remain as a conservation zone.
