- addition of approximately 3,280.0 square feet for a second storey;
- revision to the parking and loading area;
- height relaxation (proposed 25.5 feet);
- change of use to a "similar to" secondhand store, (banknotes, jewellery, bullion, and foreign exchange), and
- two retail (shell units).
Under the site’s existing C-2 zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.
