      • a proposed FSR of 0.65 (5015 sq. ft.);
      • a proposed height of 30 ft.;
  • to develop a two-storey one-family dwelling infill with:

Under the site’s existing RS-1 zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.
