Boston Pizza development proposed on Highway 1

Can-West hotels is also proposing a commercial space

Can-West Hotels is proposing a Boston Pizza as well as a second building that will feature a Dairy Queen and two other commercial units on their Big Bend Rd property.

At the moment the 1750 Trans-Canada Highway property hosts the Ramada Hotel and Can-West also has an application in to construct a second hotel.

According to a report from city staff that went to the Advisory Planning Commission for referral to council, a subdivision application for the site is nearing finalization and the west portion of the property where the Ramada is located will be subdivided into a separate parcel.

The restaurant building will be pre-cast concrete featuring a “variety of contemporary surface treatments,” the city staff report said and the wall to the north-west will not feature any windows and there will be opportunities to display tourism related signage.

The project proposal also includes landscaping improvements to the property as well as the addition of pedestrian walkways and crosswalks along Big Bend Rd and to the existing hotel.

The commercial building would also be pre-cast concrete with the northwest wall available for signage.

“Staff have worked with the applicant to revise various features of the proposals and are generally satisfied with the drawings in their current form,” the report said.

Staff asked the commission to provide feedback on design elements, building and site orientation, impacts on adjacent properties and other features related to overall form, character and functionality.
