Development Permit DP000604 - 38054-38062 Second Avenue
0:07:44 (1:08:01)

Phil Gibbons from the Community Development Department presented a development permit proposal for a six-story mixed-use building at 3854 and 38602 Avenue. The proposed site is located mid-block on the east side of Second Avenue, south of the old Dollar Tree store and north of the proposed Imaji 2 building. The site is zoned C4 downtown commercial and the proposed development is within permit areas DPA 2 for flood hazard, DPA 3 Universal for and character guidelines, DPA 5 commercial center for and character guidelines, and DPA 11 for protection from wildfire hazard. The building will have two levels of commercial space and four residential levels above. Variances are being sought for building height and projection into the required setbacks to accommodate roof eaves. Emily Rankin from AKA architecture then provided a detailed presentation on the project.

The council members asked several questions about the project. They inquired about the color choice for the building, the intention behind softening the corner to bring people into the lane, the slope requirements for the parking area, and the floor-to-floor height for the level two commercial space. The council members also asked about the accessibility of the building, the EV charging facilities, the garbage and waste management, and the view study on the downtown. The architects responded to the questions, explaining their design decisions and considerations. They mentioned that the color choice was a gesture to Squamish being an oceanfront community, the softened corner was designed to draw people to a certain point, and the slope and floor-to-floor height were determined based on the site's constraints and requirements. The council did not make a final decision during this section of the meeting.

SPEAKER_00
0:07:44 (0:02:33)

good afternoon Phil Gibbons with the Community Development Department and today I'm introducing development permit proposal DP 0000 604 for 3854 and 38602 Avenue and this site is located mid block on the east side of Second Avenue south of the old Dollar Tree store and adjacent laneway and north of the currently proposed imaji 2 building and this site is zoned C4 downtown commercial and the propos develop is within permit areas DPA 2 for flood Hazard DPA 3 Universal for and character guidelines DPA 5 commercial center for and character guidelines and DPA 11 for protection from Wildfire Hazard this proposal is for a six-story mixed use building with two levels of commercial space approximately 590 s met and four residential levels above review of the zoning shows that the requirements of the zoning byow are largely met however there are variances being sought for Building height of 3.2 M to facilitate a covered rooftop amenity area and projection into the required setbacks of 0.5 7 m to accommodate roof eaves on the northeast and West Corners and today we're seeking feedback from The Advisory design panel on the form and character of the proposed development in relation to the development permit area guidelines for development permit areas three and five and staff review against the guidelines there of the opinion that they are largely met and welcome the panel review and comments on those and now introducing Emily Rankin from AKA architecture who will provide a presentation on the

SPEAKER_03
0:10:18 (0:10:34)

project hi my name is Emily Ranken architect aibc I am presenting this project located at 38054 38602 Avenue downtown Squamish on behalf of the team at AKA architecture and the Landscape Architects at considered design Julian patteron who you all know from considered design is the landscape architect for this project but unfortunately is unable to attend today this building type is fairly typical of downtown Squamish and will be very familiar to the panel it has two stories of commercial and parking with residential above this project is a six-story mixed used infill development located in downtown Squamish levels one and two include parking and commercial space levels 3 to six include 31 residential units four of which are adaptable the rooftop of the project is designed as an outdoor amenity space for residents the project is targeting step four of the BC energy step code for residential and step three for commercial the site is located midblock on the east side of Second Avenue in downtown Squamish between Winnipeg and Victoria behind Cleveland Avenue something to note we'll talk about it more in a little bit is the service lane behind the site dead ends on the North End it isn't continuous and it connects out the side to Second Avenue here we have shown some of the existing context and buildings on this block of Second Avenue including the existing buildings on the site itself don't know if you can see my cursor there it is this block of Second Avenue is experiencing a lot of change a number of projects of a similar scale are currently under construction or in the works this also informs our design rationale in response to the evolving nature of SE Second Avenue in downtown Squamish I wanted to review the site plan before launching into anything further to identify the location of the project and the adjacent Lane so the side lane wraps from Second Avenue around to The Back Lane this Lane fun functions as an active service Lane and still has an opportunity for a second Avenue pedestrian connection this is an unexpected feature and opportunity of this infill site the back Lane dead ends and isn't continuous through to Winnipeg street so it hits the back of the old Dollar Tree the lane access also acts as fire Tru and garbage truck access we do expect a lot of vehicular movement here given the development that are happening further down the lane and the access to parking for those projects level one includes parking and commercial retail space the waist storage is located at the northeast corner of the lane the main entry for residents and for level two commercial access is located at the southwest corner just off of Second Avenue we encourage pedestrian movement down the north side of the building and delineate a change from pedestrian realm to service area with a change in concrete Paving color a change in cladding material and color all of which are aligned with the edge of the canopy above we'll be able to see this Illustrated a little more in elevation in a few slides for the landscape at level one the streetcape is per District of squ PR streetscape standards the streetscape elements have been extended down the north side of the building to pull pedestrians down this way at the corner cut here the Landscape Architects have introduced a nice creative element with the paving playing around with the saw cuts and color of the concrete to animate the corner the sculptural concrete bench has also been provided the trees along Second Avenue here have been selected per BC Hydro guidelines although I will point out that the intention is eventually for the power lines to be undergrounded along here for parking the project meets District of Squamish parking requirements there are 35 parking stalls provided on site for EV charging there are 11 stalls with chargers while 100% of the parking stall have refence for future EV charging electrification the north ramp accesses parking above at level two and the South ramp here accesses the level one parking into here on level two you'll see the trip end facility for commercial users there is access to the Office Professional space parking and El electrical mechanical rooms to level three the indoor amenity space is located at this level the landscape planting along grid line one includes low-maintenance plants with ample planting depth and a modular planting system with a selection of lavender and grasses the trees along here are magnolia growing to maximum height of 10 ft on the residential levels every residential unit has a private covered deck the corner decks are expressed at an angle you'll see this in the perspective images in a few slides also every unit has bike storage and additionally there is a bike storage room on each residential level so L six the outdoor amenity area provided at the rooftop for residents elevator access to this level is provided for an accessible path of travel in plan here you can see the extents of the roof overhangs at the outside corners for the landscape architecture design at the roof more low maintenance planting has been provided with lavender grasses and herbs Urban agriculture Planters are provided for residents tables chairs and a barbecue area the Planters are playfully multicolored and the space is partially covered for weather protection throughout the year now with reference to the changing nature of this block and downtown in general the intention here has been to define a presence and identity for this building as one whole instead of a kit of parts we want it to have its own unique character while still being cohesive and relating to the existing and future context levels 1 and two are connected to Second Avenue levels 3 to six are set back but still connected through a use of material the main roof is quite Dynamic with the roof line created the priorities of this project and the design approach have been to create a strong commercial Presence at the lower levels while creating a cohesive presence for the whole building Mass to have its own differentiated character as a project as well as maintaining a dialogue with the other new developments on the Block for us our approach has looked at animating The Pedestrian realm the canopy coverage wraps the northwest corner providing weather protection and includes coverage for the class B bike parking immediately you'll notice the use of color to articulate the building Mass create interest and Define a playful appearance we wanted to use color as a tool to break down the mass and create a playful and uplifting appearance from the street especially on Gray weather days the corrugated metal siding is durable and doesn't need to be ref refinished in this climate it fits with the industrial past and present of Squamish you'll also notice the angled decks and articulated roof overhangs provided to define a personality for the building and open it up to the street at those Corners in an open rather than enclosed dialogue the overhangs also provide weather protection and express the materiality of the cedar wood sofits the wood material choice is a gesture to Squamish forestry so there is the aesthetic quality of course but also very functional at the same time and with the rooftop amenity up here the open weather protection is also provided here we have the exterior elevations illustrating the pallet proposed I'll share the material selection samples that I have here in the

SPEAKER_09
0:20:53 (0:00:01)

room we can we

SPEAKER_03
0:20:54 (0:00:39)

can hold them up to the camera maybe see you can see the view okay we have the slate gray which is a warm gray for the corrugated metal siding we have the Adriatic Sea blue which is the color of the fiber cement panel accent color this is paired with royal blue metal guards

SPEAKER_11
0:21:34 (0:00:02)

see

SPEAKER_03
0:21:37 (0:04:43)

here I just put it in front of my face yeah this is paired together the blue the other secondary color for fiber cement accent color is a very light gray Misty and we also have navy blue down at the surface areas which I'll point out in a few s lines in the elevations and we also have cedar wood sopit finish as well to pair with these colors so if I kind of hold them up together see how they kind of pair as a pair as a palette hopefully that can see a little bit of that okay thank you this first elevation along Second Avenue shows the double height main entry and the color palette providing cohesive language on the exterior massing in this view we can see the blue decks here accented with perforated blue metal guards I think this is a really interesting feature of the project and will provide a lot of interest from the street for the front facade this next elevation shows the side of the building along the lane showing how the storefront wraps at level one and a darker blue finish is used at the back corner to differ iate the service Zone this elevation shows the elevation at the back Lane and the entries into the parking so here this is the ramp up to level two and here is the entry to the level one parking this elevation is immediately adjacent to the neighboring development to the South so glazing has been reduced on the south face and the corner decks oriented to the east and west both of these moves have been with privacy and mind for the neighboring property this view of the building exterior along Second Avenue shows the main entry for the building with the double height volume articulated with blue the landscape planting at level three can be seen from below the canopy at level one is continuous above the commercial storefronts providing weather protection the commercial and residential volumes are related through similar exterior cladding materials you can also see the angled corner decks and the roof overhang articulated here this view shows the potential for animation at the corner cut at the side lane the canopy offers lots of weather protection it's about 10 ft High the canopy has a wood sopit and general illumination is provided through sopit lighting there are creative signage opportunities there is the sculptural concrete landscape bench that offers an opportunity for Gathering we quite like the bench that the landscape architect chose we feel it's a good fit it has seating all the way around there are covered bike racks for visitors and here you can see the extent of the paving colors extended down the lane the cladding elements tie the ground floor and building above this final slot final image shows animation of The Pedestrian realm the street cape and the Project's materiality at AKA we are very happy with how this project has come together and look forward to the conversation and review those are all the slides I have and I'll turn it back to the

SPEAKER_11
0:26:21 (0:00:29)

panel thank you very much the way we usually proceed is you know and is that we'll give each of the panelists an opportunity to ask questions you know for any clarifications they need about the design how about we start with our new member

SPEAKER_08
0:26:50 (0:00:06)

Sunni hi oh

SPEAKER_11
0:26:56 (0:00:15)

here I'm not hearing anything is there a problem with the audio or

SPEAKER_08
0:27:12 (0:00:00)

do you hear

SPEAKER_11
0:27:12 (0:00:02)

me yes now we hear

SPEAKER_08
0:27:15 (0:00:03)

you okay I don't have any

SPEAKER_11
0:27:18 (0:00:09)

questions great Sarah

SPEAKER_04
0:27:28 (0:00:23)

I always remember to unmute myself okay I've got a couple of questions here first of all I just wanted to verify that the seat depth on the concrete bench is approximately a foot is that

SPEAKER_03
0:27:51 (0:00:03)

correct ah yes that's

SPEAKER_04
0:27:54 (0:00:31)

correct and is it papers that are being proposed underneath the bike racks that run along Second

SPEAKER_03
0:28:26 (0:00:04)

Avenue no it's not pavers it's a concrete with saw

SPEAKER_04
0:28:31 (0:00:16)

cuts okay thank you at the rooftop minity space the double doors that lead from the elevator are is one fixed are they both going to

SPEAKER_03
0:28:47 (0:00:04)

swing at the double doors both would be operable

SPEAKER_04
0:28:51 (0:00:20)

okay and then can you just tell me about the color distinction between ashalt versus the paving that's on the cut corner is it more or less the same color and just the band of concrete in between to

SPEAKER_03
0:29:12 (0:00:03)

distinguish along Second Avenue sorry

SPEAKER_04
0:29:16 (0:00:25)

on the corner of where there's the cut corner of the building where the concrete bench will be the concrete is darker and I'm just wondering if it's the same shade as ashalt and if there's only the distinction of it looks like a concrete band in the in the renderings between that covered amenity space and the

SPEAKER_03
0:29:42 (0:00:08)

alley it will be a darker gray but it should be different than ashalt it should look different

SPEAKER_04
0:29:50 (0:00:06)

okay and there but there is a concrete a light concrete band in between the

SPEAKER_03
0:29:56 (0:00:11)

two there will be a concrete curb along that lane way

SPEAKER_04
0:30:07 (0:00:08)

yes it's a curb versus a it's not all at grade that area it's going to be raised up like sidewalk

SPEAKER_03
0:30:15 (0:00:03)

it's a flat panel curb so it will meet flush okay

SPEAKER_04
0:30:19 (0:00:23)

great thanks and I also wondered was there any exploration of how the max allowable slope of the ramp from the level two parking down to the elevator if it could be that slope could be decreased at

SPEAKER_03
0:30:42 (0:00:25)

all so getting so from the parking to get to the level two elevator that area yeah it's 88.3% ramp right we've definitely worked a lot on that area to make sure that the slopes can get us from the parking to the elevator while making it as accessible as possible is

SPEAKER_10
0:31:08 (0:00:02)

there a slope we should be targeting

SPEAKER_03
0:31:10 (0:00:02)

is there a slope we should be

SPEAKER_04
0:31:13 (0:00:21)

targeting yeah it should be you know maybe 6% 8.3 is the max so it's you know if you're coming with groceries coming down there or taking something up to your vehicle it's going to make it a bit more difficult okay that's all my questions at the moment

SPEAKER_11
0:31:34 (0:00:04)

thanks great thank you

SPEAKER_09
0:31:39 (0:00:17)

s thanks for the presentation I start my question with the accessibility so you have provided 31 unit in this building can you ex clarify how many of them are adaptable or

SPEAKER_03
0:31:56 (0:00:03)

accessible four units are

SPEAKER_09
0:31:59 (0:00:04)

adaptable and on what level

SPEAKER_03
0:32:03 (0:00:06)

because there's one on each of the four residential levels it's the Northwest

SPEAKER_09
0:32:09 (0:00:28)

un on the corner ones yes and so okay can you also clarify that the El all the elevating devices and the location of the elevator is aligned and compl with the recent with the requirement of the recent egbc and aibc elevator

SPEAKER_03
0:32:38 (0:00:05)

guideline is there a specific part of the guideline that you're that you're looking for or

SPEAKER_09
0:32:43 (0:00:16)

you know it is my understanding that there are some requirement which may have impact on the location as well as the size of the elevator so I just want to make sure that you are aware of that guideline it's pretty

SPEAKER_03
0:33:00 (0:00:04)

new we'd have to verify to go back okay thank you

SPEAKER_09
0:33:05 (0:00:45)

and can you also please show me on the side plan the pedestrain as well as the bicycle access to the site from the bus stop you where you have you have Seline showing the bus stop and The Pedestrian axis I think I was just wondering how is the connection between that pedestrian axis and the pedest axis of the

SPEAKER_03
0:33:50 (0:00:23)

building so like if someone arrives by bike and they want to bring the bike into the building yes correct likely they would come in the main entrance because all of the bike storage is on each residential level and inside the units so they would bring it in the main entry and up the

SPEAKER_09
0:34:14 (0:00:23)

elevator okay from the from where you know for example from the bus stop they will pass through the street I'm guessing and then from the main entrance they will into and go to their either bike storage or the their units because you also mentioned that units they have also B Storage

SPEAKER_03
0:34:37 (0:00:02)

yes that's correct

SPEAKER_09
0:34:39 (0:00:29)

okay and the elevator also is complying with the requirement of the carrying bike in it yes that's correct okay thank you and can you also so can you also clarify that all the commercial and the residential parking they have EV potential access or you know maybe I Mis M

SPEAKER_03
0:35:09 (0:00:21)

so 11 stalls we've indicated it's a bit tiny on here but showing the locations of the EV chargers for 11 of the 35 parking stalls however aligned with the District of Squamish requirements electrification or sorry rough inss for future electrification is provided at 100% of the parking stalls

SPEAKER_09
0:35:30 (0:00:10)

that's great okay thank you so much and also can you please explain a bit about the garbage and waste

SPEAKER_03
0:35:41 (0:01:10)

management see if I can zoom in I don't know so yes the waste storage is located at the northeast corner adjacent to the Lane where we anticipate garbage truck access happens the curb or the edge of the paving at the lane is a flat panel so the bins can roll over for Access that's also a reason why we pulled the canopy back at this location so that there's overhead clearance for the collection vehicles to lift the bins up and into the truck accessible clearance has been provided at the door for Access to the way storage area hose bib provided and drain for cleaning it and according to the district of Squamish waste calculations we've provided garbage recycling compost at this

SPEAKER_09
0:36:51 (0:00:23)

room okay thank you and I have one more question about The View study and so have you done view study on the downtown is swage or do you have any because you know I could not open one of the PDFs maybe in that PDF

SPEAKER_03
0:37:14 (0:00:19)

maybe we showed like the LA the last three slides of the presentation just showing the 3D of the building but as far as our understanding the district of Squamish has not required us to provide the view studies for this

SPEAKER_09
0:37:34 (0:00:04)

site okay thanks

SPEAKER_11
0:37:38 (0:00:19)

thank you great thank you s that's who's next here Beth maybe Beth yes okay thank you

SPEAKER_07
0:37:57 (0:01:08)

yeah I do have a few questions thanks for the presentation appreciate the way that you spoke about the context the consideration that you've given the local materiality I have a few questions in that respect actually that maybe I'll start with I'm curious about the consideration for the Adriatic blue it's definitely a strik in color I'm curious if there were any conversations about the timelessness of that particular color Choice the connection to context to Regional materiality to the vernacular how it maybe would sit in the existing context and the future context and I know that you did mention that there had been some consideration given to projects that were planned to sit on adjacent sites as well and I think I'm just a little bit curious just to hear a little bit more about how you guys arrived at the color and are feeling about the appropriateness given the

SPEAKER_03
0:39:06 (0:00:31)

context yeah so I feel like even the name Adriatic blue maybe kind of sounds foreign but as like the color itself I think we've talked a lot in the office about you know Squamish being an Oceanfront community and so you know the idea of blue being gesture to the water to the ocean and using that or trying to incorporate it as a playful element for the project

SPEAKER_07
0:39:38 (0:00:44)

so okay and another question that I have would be about the I like the softening of the corner I think it's in the north northwest corner softening I'm curious about the intention behind softening the corner to bring people into the lane and knowing that the lane doesn't sort of have like a flow through could you speak a little bit about the intention to bring people in to a certain point and sort of where that sort of flow is meant to go once it's hits that change in materiality of the building half sort of halfway through the

SPEAKER_03
0:40:23 (0:00:54)

lane yes so I guess this is an interesting part of the project because it's like we want to bring people down the side of the building but like to a certain point because as you point out like after that it like there's no through connection to Cleveland Avenue there and you can walk down the side of the building and all of a sudden you're in a lane but the idea of because this space is an opportunity with the animation of the commercial tenant in that area to find ways to use the space provided but then through you know the paving color the cladding color the extent of the canopy to then kind of change the language to stop drawing people even further down the

SPEAKER_07
0:41:17 (0:00:14)

lane so the idea is maybe to kind of gesture people towards the commercial element but there's no there's no access point back into the building further down unless you walk all the way around to the Parkade is that

SPEAKER_03
0:41:32 (0:00:28)

correct like there's no other is there is access to parking and to the stair which theoretically as a resident so residents can come down the stair here and come I can't see I can't see your screen sorry oh sorry I'm G I'll share and then I'll show in plan as well okay yeah that' be appreciated

SPEAKER_00
0:42:01 (0:00:17)

okay sorry I might just jump in also the district has a policy for midblock connections while I don't think there's an existing one down there there's potential for future connections through to Cleveland

SPEAKER_03
0:42:18 (0:00:36)

okay yes so good point so you know designing for future opportunities I hope I'm sharing now so here the extent of the darker Paving and so this stair here comes up and out of the parking at level one and this stair here comes down from residential levels and out here so access to the building is provided at both of these areas further down this side of the

SPEAKER_07
0:42:54 (0:00:53)

building okay thank you I think other than that if I know we're mindful of the time if we just have a minute to look at the Southern elevation really quickly in context yes just one moment just to revisit it okay here yeah okay understood and it's in terms of its existing context is it adjacent to like a predescribed future development or are the buildings remaining next

SPEAKER_03
0:43:48 (0:00:20)

door currently there is site work being done for future development but I don't know if someone from the district has more information on timeline or anything about what's going on that site well but like scale of the building will be a six-story building

SPEAKER_00
0:44:08 (0:00:16)

okay yeah I don't have a exact update on it has a development permit but I'm not sure where the construction stage is at but yeah it's a similar form to what's proposed adjacent

SPEAKER_07
0:44:25 (0:00:08)

okay that's s that's all the questions that I have thank you

SPEAKER_11
0:44:33 (0:00:44)

great thank you I have a couple of questions where I would like you to elaborate on some specific design decisions the first one is about that lane elevation and whether there is some specific reason why that level of parking is not being

SPEAKER_03
0:45:17 (0:00:06)

daylit like level one and two from the back and side

SPEAKER_11
0:45:24 (0:00:01)

Lanes right

SPEAKER_03
0:45:25 (0:00:28)

yes I think it wasn't something that we' considered at this point in time just I think we were looking at how to kind of tie together the material and we're looking at sort of trying to provide a cohesiveness rather than providing more openings at certain areas

SPEAKER_11
0:45:54 (0:00:47)

okay so along the same lines similar concern from a design point of view is that level that second level of commercial on the street there seems to be very little glazing which is seems unusual you know normal expectation would be for you know for you know continuous or stri glazing or a large amount of glazing and a limited amount of wall for that type of space so I'm wondering again what was the rationale on the that

SPEAKER_03
0:46:42 (0:00:11)

decision the glazing at level two specifically for the commercial area was to meet the requirements of the energy model for this project

SPEAKER_11
0:46:54 (0:01:21)

yeah okay all right I'm very tight little site you know obviously very challenging in terms of achieving access in you know and laying out that parking the cross the 5 perc cross slope seems you know very limal I mean you normally anything above four for cross slope on parking is you know kind of objectionable so a little bit of a concern there but I'm also looking at the way the slope seems to have been drawn and just concerned whether or not in fact you will be able to you know to meet the slope requirements the accessibility requirements in further design development As you move into construction documentation and I guess my question is you know what's your level of confidence there and does the does the project kind of start to fall apart when that stops to

SPEAKER_03
0:48:15 (0:00:49)

work so the showing in the sections in the package includes the ramp slope study so we were up against the water table and so we couldn't go down very much and so really the exercise was being able to get the ramp up and over to meet the level two elevation while meeting our 5% for parking area so it's definitely tight but I think we're confident that given the exercise and the study performed that we can meet those elevations but it definitely was a I can answer this yeah go for

SPEAKER_01
0:49:04 (0:01:21)

Jane hi I I'm Jane song I'm also from AKA an architect there we actually have done a number of parades in Squamish and every time we do it it's a very tight squeeze so I will tell you yes we are at the lowest we can go for the water table or as high as we can go and meet the slope requirements for the Parkade ramp and so we know we've investigated it quite thoroughly because we know we have to be bang on the money every time so it actually forms I mean we can't even really get started on the design until we have that figured out the other thing to mention is the requirement for minimum Headroom clearance is beyond the code Min minimum it's I think it's 2.3 M or something like that so we've H actually you know doesn't sound like much more than the code minimum but we really did a lot of math to make sure we're getting that everywhere in the Parkade so I think we've spent more time doing the math on that than the rest of the building but you're right we'll always keep our fingers crossed thank

SPEAKER_11
0:50:26 (0:00:57)

you right so I'm also noticing the floor T floor height for that level two commercial is only 10 foot three the same as the residential above again that seems you know very tight for commercial space and I'm just kind of wondering you know would it not be acceptable for the project to exceed ever so slightly the 20 meter you know height you know in order to have that gain on that level two of pushing that from 10 foot3 to 12 foot I mean normally you'd be looking at you know at 13 for commercial floor to floor but you

SPEAKER_01
0:51:23 (0:01:35)

know you raised a very good point I'm going to answer for Emily because we have a number of projects where U we've given priority to the crus at the Grand floor level because generally speaking the second floor tends to be used as office space but we do find it quite tight under construction to fit everything we need to up there so you know originally we were trying to meet the building height maximum Building height and in that case we're trying to split the difference between L1 ceiling space in L2 so we could drop the ceiling height in level one and that would actually help us in many ways for example sarup makes that ramp easier to lower the slope so it is something that we're still kind of reviewing but we definitely see the value in that if we wanted to increase both floor levels to be 11t or whatever then we would need more of a variance currently right now our variance our roof height variance is only related to the roof over the amenity space at the rooftop level so I'd have to speak to the planners to see how that what the what the flexibilities are in that particular variance so I think it is known that those second floor spaces can be quite challenging

SPEAKER_11
0:52:58 (0:00:11)

all right U thank you that's all for my questions and so we'll now invite the panelists in the same order that they spoke previously to actually

SPEAKER_05
0:53:10 (0:00:00)

SPEAKER_11
0:53:11 (0:00:03)

give their comments

SPEAKER_04
0:53:15 (0:00:22)

may I sorry Charles I just had a had a comment that there actually is a space between the takosushi building and marchello's so there is a pedestrian walk through I mean it's not the loveliest but it there is something that exists there that could probably be improved in the future so just as an FYI to

SPEAKER_11
0:53:38 (0:00:15)

everyone great thank you so Sunni you didn't have any questions but you're welcome to comment on the on the

SPEAKER_08
0:53:53 (0:00:55)

project well I have to say is that I this project seems to be really aligned with the new projects that are going to be built in Second Avenue I liked the fact that the corner cut that is promoting the social aspect of the you know movement pedestrians and people that are going to be around I like that I like the scale of the building the placement I think you have described pretty well what the project is about and yeah so that's what I have to

SPEAKER_11
0:54:48 (0:00:04)

say great thank you Sarah I think you were next

SPEAKER_04
0:54:53 (0:02:22)

right I think so overall I think the project is great I like the look of the building I'm very pleased with the adaptable units that you've actually looked at the functional statement and it functions because often adaptable units can be built and they're not actually going to be adaptable I'd just like you to en to encourage you even though it's very tight and probably not possible is to try and increase the interior corridor from 1.5 M to 1 .8 if possible only because if people are ringing bikes in and people are passing in the hallway it's going to be a little tight in on the rooftop amenity space just to remind you no fixed seating so that anybody can pull up a chair if they need to in the renderings and it's probably just because the tree was short and The Pedestrian person was tall but just to ensure that there's no protruding hazards from the trees for somebody with a visual impairment that there's automatic door openers sort of at the main entrances and from the parkades into the vestule where the elevator is if you can decrease the 88.3% slope I would encourage you to do that and then this is more of a comment maybe for the district but is just to ensure that with the bicycle rats going to be along Second Avenue as well as any signposts that there is some you know there's not going to be haage for people getting out of their vehicles to cross over through that space so you know I know that with my large van my lift comes out the side but you know if I line it up properly then I can typically get out in most spots but just to be cognizant of that and yeah just to ensure that on that corner space where you're inviting people down the alley that there is that distinction between spaces so there's not going to be someone inadvertently kind of wandering into the into the middle and yeah I think that's it but overall yeah I think it's great

SPEAKER_11
0:57:15 (0:00:06)

thanks great thank you

SPEAKER_09
0:57:22 (0:01:20)

Tamma thank you so much for the presentation generally I like the concept of the form and character of the building and in addition to other panels comments there are few minor consideration so I just you know add this consideration please consider the ownership rights as well as the air parcel agreements and security differentiating the publicly versus privately owned spaces review the recent egbc aibc elevator guideline for potential impacts on the size and the location of the elevator I suggest to consider Rick Hansen accessibility recommendation for the signage and site accessibilities for both residential and Commercial units and consider more warm and live color scheme for residential units consider a clear path of travel for commercial bike access consider the requirement of Step code level five for the residential part thank you so

SPEAKER_11
0:58:43 (0:00:06)

much great thank you s

SPEAKER_07
0:58:49 (0:01:51)

Beth hi there yeah generally I really did appreciate the thoughtfulness in which she spoke of the materiality the connection to the industrial history to the logging history for materiality I think is really important I think that I would encourage you to take another look at the gesture of bringing people into the alleyway at the corner I like the softening of the corner like the other panelists as well because I think it creates a nice social space at the corner as well I would just think maybe more there's a duty of care once you bring people sort of Midway down that lane that they can't just we can't just lose the sidewalk and sort of force people out into the lane and maybe create some potential confusion so maybe I might consider looking at that one a little bit more I spent my morning actually in that in that practice note about the elevator Sama so it's funny that you bring it up so i' I'd suck in taking a look at it because it's relatively new but I didn't see anything strange that would cause me any concern and I think just to the point I don't have any concerns about the encroachment on or the variances so the encroachment of the setback for the sopit and the increase in height for the rooftop amenity because I think that the rooftop amenity is a nice amenity I think if it were to be increased or were to be considered to be increased for the commercial spaces at all I might take a second look at the roof the express the expressivity of the roof line because maybe if it starts to creep into higher territory we might want to think about whether or not the roof line might want to get a little less expressive and a little quieter that would just be my one concern

SPEAKER_00
1:00:41 (0:00:14)

there do that last comment

SPEAKER_11
1:00:55 (0:00:04)

sorry Beth we the LA we missed your last sentence you cut out

SPEAKER_07
1:00:59 (0:00:33)

oh apologies can you hear me now yes okay I think I just mentioned that if consideration were to be given to increasing the encroachment into the height the maximum height I might I might suggest that one would take a closer look at the roof line the roof Line's expressive which is a nice feature maybe at lower level but if the building were to get a little higher it might be something that one might want to look at in terms of the way that it might obstruct

SPEAKER_11
1:01:33 (0:04:16)

views great thank you all right I'm gonna start my comments with saying that yes I generally speaking I'd like this building and I'm quite impressed with you know assuming that it works out quite impressed with you know how neatly things have been you know arranged of solving that problem with the parking you know very obviously very challenging and generally well done I do have an issue with the you know the twostory blank wall on the lane and you know I would suggest that daylighting that parking would be you know would be a good thing from a you know simply from a practical point of view and would also provide an opportunity to resolve that elevation you know in a you know a more satisfying way aesthetically it you know I know it's the lane it's the back of the building but you know I think that you know that could be improved significantly I'm also skeptical about the limited amount of glazing on the second level Street facing for the commercial I think it seems you know I understand you know you know dealing with the amount of glazing in terms of the energy performance but there are you know a number of trade-offs and compromises that you know that can be used to meet those requirements and similar to the problem with the lane is I think if you allow yourself more glazing we could have a more satisfying composition for that slice of the building which I find is oddly articulated and yeah I would I would encourage some further design development on that slice of the elevation I'm noting that the roof the free floating roof above the balconies is very thin which looks great and it structurally it that looks very challenging to me so I'm wondering how that how that ends up in reality as that is you know structurally you know figured out it it's it looks very different if it starts to thicken up right that I'm going to limit my comments to that thank you that's those are I think are my important points now typically at this point the panel you know may have a discussion about how we feel about the project and whether you know what we want our recommendation to be do I have anyone on the panel who wants to you know put forth a motion or start a discussion

SPEAKER_04
1:05:50 (0:00:15)

Sarah I would promote or advise to choose B where the AFC can works with the Planner on the comments that we

Development Permit DP000613 – 38029, 38035, 38045 Third Avenue
1:15:45 (0:52:20)

Jesse Abraham, a planner, introduced a development permit application for a mixed-use building on Third Avenue in downtown Squamish. The proposed development includes the consolidation of three single-family lots and features a mixed-use building with ground floor commercial space, a second-story parkade, and four stories of residential units above, totaling 45 units. The project has undergone a comprehensive development rezoning process, known as cd105 Zone, which has set the general parameters for the development including sighting, size, density, and massing. All zoning requirements have been met and no variances are proposed. However, a review concluded that several guidelines in relation to DP Area 3 for Universal guidelines and DP area 5 for commercial center are not fully met.

The council members asked several questions about the project, focusing on accessibility, waste management, and the design of the building. Concerns were raised about pedestrian safety in the back lane, the accessibility of the building, and the design of the garbage room. The council also discussed the potential for public art on the building and the need for adequate lighting in the mid-block cut-through. The developer responded to these concerns, noting that they are considering adding an automatic door opener to the garbage room and that they are working with the waste management company to ensure the garbage pickup process is efficient. The developer also noted that they are committed to meeting all code and district requirements for accessible units. The council concluded the discussion without making a final decision on the project.

SPEAKER_02
1:15:46 (0:02:03)

resume thanks Charles I can introduce our second item here so my name is Jesse Abraham planner today I'm introducing a development permit application for Third Avenue in downtown Squamish so this application has not been previously presented to the panel and the site is located at 38029 035 and 045 on third AV midblock between Victoria Winnipeg streets the development includes a consolidation of three single family lots with rear Lane access and includes one mixed use building with ground floor commercial Second Story parcade and four stories of residential above and the residential includes 45 units so the project has undergone a comprehensive development resoning process known as cd105 Zone which has set the general parameters for the development including sighting size density and massing all the zoning requirements have been met no variances are proposed staff are generally supportive of the design however a review concluded that several guidelines in relation to DP Area 3 for Universal guidelines lines in DP area 5 for commercial center are not fully met and would appreciate the adp's comments and recommendations on the following aspects so DP UHA guidelines speak to human scale development connection to the street unique detailing at Commercial storefronts and highlights vibrancy of the streetcape while achieving a pleasing overall color balance so staff are seeking adp's review of commercial signage and visual interest at street level DP Area 3 includes guidelines around Universal accessibil throughout the development staff are seeking adp's review of development accessibility including pedestrian roots and accessible seating and common amenity areas and DP Area 3 also speaks to preventing large blank walls for in infill development staff are seeking ADP comment on blank Wall South elevation and with that I will pass it to the applicant to present the

SPEAKER_12
1:17:49 (0:00:06)

proposal T Yamamoto with Yamamoto architecture share my screen

SPEAKER_02
1:17:55 (0:00:02)

Tao can you speak up it's hard to hear you

SPEAKER_12
1:17:57 (0:00:02)

sorry about that is that

SPEAKER_02
1:18:00 (0:00:02)

better can you turn it up

SPEAKER_12
1:18:03 (0:00:10)

more how is that I can try speaking up a bit louder or let me see if I can adjust my settings a bit

SPEAKER_02
1:18:13 (0:00:01)

try to adjust your

SPEAKER_12
1:18:14 (0:00:12)

settings okay let me just stop sharing for one moment apologies for this how is that any

SPEAKER_02
1:18:27 (0:00:04)

better I think that's better yeah just speak up loudly please thanks

SPEAKER_12
1:18:32 (0:03:54)

okay we'll do sorry about that okay thank you very much apologies I couldn't be there today I just recovering from covid and didn't want to get you all sick before the holidays this is the sort of a companion project to a project that you saw a couple of months ago that we presented across the street and so we kind of have a unique opportunity to do a paired building relationship which is very rare the site is located downtown a very good location for mixed use and in compliance with the ocp designations so there's kind of a mixed development on site at the moment with the jent Lauren building or S Building over the Lauren the ash across the street and then single family home so it's kind of a transitional area at the moment one of the ideas that we had in developing the building massing was to kind of refer to the Chief and the texture and the Topography of the chief but also the valley the scage valley and the fact that we do have mirrored buildings that can kind of speak to each other so there's a no of bringing in kind of an organic Street wall and a condition that is very unique because we have ability to control both sides of the street so that was kind of one of the things that was really interesting to us also because the building transitions from the lowend building which is on the south and the Women's Center building immediately to the South and then to what will be a further setb Street wall further to the north as that gets developed so there's kind of a way to meet at the street wall through the west building but then also reflect that to what's happening on the east side so along third you have small storefronts that are broken up into narrow kind of fine grain retail cut through along the northern edge of the site and the residential Lobby tucked in the middle parking access at grade and up to the level two off of the lane so this sort of shows the massing steps that kind of evolved the development in terms of notching on Corners to maximize light and reduce massing towards the adjacent sites but then also this idea of a topography and a stepping back of building planes to create more interest along the street wall and then finally you know upper story additional step backs to creit more breathing room to the neighbor and more solar access Mater IAL pette is fairly limited because it is a fairly small building and we want to create a singular expression for the building so that includes cementitious panels on upper levels that are sort of a Mossy green color some accent cementitious panel which is a darker gray that would relate to the dark gray window colors and unify that palette longboard Would S it for the undersides of sofits to also create some warmth and then some sealed concrete at grade that kind of is the termination of those peer elements at grade and dabin is in the in the chambers with the material board this is just some images of projects we've done with cementitious panel and showing how we can detail it in a way that's very clean part of the way we like to do this is to have a color matched bent metal trim as opposed to easy trim which can offer be quite it stands

SPEAKER_00
1:22:26 (0:00:01)

out quite a bit and adds a

SPEAKER_12
1:22:27 (0:03:07)

lot of depth and we prefer to make those joints and those seams disappear we've also looked at introducing screening elements I think you saw similar idea on the East Building to screen the Parkade level but introduce murals as well that provide additional color and also can refer additionally to Squamish whether it's the history of the site or just addal storytelling so this is the rendering of the East Elevation so you can see the peers connect the lower level to the upper but then there's some step backs that happen both in plan and in section to open up the corner at the North side and create a bit more interest along the street wall and even though there's a flat roof there's a kind of a varied roofscape as a result of the plan steps and then some murals that can also refer to the topography and the and The Rock faces of the chief in a more monochromatic way to balance the color of the building so this is another view I'm showing how the cut through can be activated by glazing that extends partially down that cut through on the North side and then this shows a view of both buildings some color has been added to the East Building since you've last seen it and some additional murals and activation of the street level can just run So the plan again parking off the lane access to the lobby through where the kind of bike lane is offset and kind of creates a special moment for the residential Lobby parking on level two level three which provides indoor and outdoor amenity space on the level deck sorry level two deck level three deck sorry and then step back corners on the upper levels of the building and then rooftop amend space in the form of outdoor space because we're at a six-story building already and we cannot increase indoor space on that seventh floor without going to a non-combustible construction some additional glazing added on the corner northeast corner of the building to bring activation of that retail onto that cut through and then wrapping that mural along level two on all sides including the south side towards the Women's Center building we are trying to get 12T clear in this in the retail wherever possible with some reduced height below the ramp on the southern side and then signage of course is a placeholder at this stage until the tenants come in and provide additional variation and color and sign fonts through their own branding and their own their own uses but a fairly simple expression offset with signage around the entries of the individual units but then also kind of connected to those peers that form the building on the upper levels and with that I'll pass it over to

SPEAKER_10
1:25:34 (0:02:23)

Peter thank you Tao yeah the ground floor as you explained it is fairly straightforward with the streetcape on Third Avenue with the bike lane which takes a bit of a chicane because of the women's center and lining things up but we do have some Street trees there with structal soil and silver cells you can see there's some bike racks there just parallel to the bike lane with lots of room for movement there off the Third Avenue and into the into the building and Commercial itself next slide please Ty up on the next level which is level three which is over top of parking on the south side of the building there is the amenity space that covers both the East and the west side and then along the frontage on third they've got some raised Planters with some medium small and medium size trees with the same on the lane side so that it's got this a nice little green shoulder which is similar to what we're doing across the street so it greens the project up a little bit and all these trees of course fit with the fire spread concerns and low fire rating on the plants Etc so moving along up on the tippy top of the building U we have the a common shared open space there with some built-in Timberwood seaters seat seating U essentially some platforms and some seats all about 18 inches in height easily accessible and then there's a some extensive green roof that covers up a goodly portion of the roof to Green the space up and to deal with some sustainability issues so it brings for some nice habitat there as well I think in general you know the next bunch here are planting plants you don't think we really need to go through those these give you the site section so it gives you some relationships there on the ground floor from Third Avenue to the Lane and then you know the detail of Third Avenue the rais Planters up on level three and then the roof deck with the sea in green roof and the layout up there so that's pretty well the landscape presentation thank

SPEAKER_12
1:27:58 (0:00:08)

you so that concludes our presentation and we're happy to hear your comments and feedback thank

SPEAKER_11
1:28:06 (0:00:22)

you great thank you very much that was indeed very efficient let's proceed as we did previously and panelists are each invited to ask questions for clarifications and we'll start in the same order as we did previously Sunni I'll give you a chance to ask the first set of

SPEAKER_08
1:28:28 (0:00:39)

questions thank you for the presentation I have a question about The Pedestrian route in the back Lane like there's going to be a lot of like exit entrances like in the back where the commercial spaces are and then the back of the building for the main lobby so how like the lane for me I think is going to be a lot of pedestrian movement maybe a lot of people H walking around so how is safety too about

SPEAKER_12
1:29:08 (0:00:50)

that so one advantage of having the Midlock cut through along the north side is that it does provide a pedestrian route from the lane to the front of the site so that's one route another would be a connection into the lobby from the rear of the site for residents I believe most of the access to the rear of the retail would be more for M for service rather than public and visitors to the to the retail would use that cut through conect walkway to get to the front of the building is that does that answer your question or

SPEAKER_11
1:29:59 (0:00:12)

yeah great that's any more questions sh great

SPEAKER_04
1:30:12 (0:00:06)

Sarah presentation to begin with can you tell me which units are meant to be

SPEAKER_12
1:30:18 (0:00:20)

adaptable so at the moment we considering the northwest corner unit stack and an additional unit on level three on the northeast corner because we want to make sure that unit plan is stacking well up the building but we're providing five adaptable

SPEAKER_04
1:30:39 (0:00:22)

unit okay and what is the distance from the right slide here from the bike racks to the front of the Cru units on ground

SPEAKER_12
1:31:01 (0:00:04)

level those are that's around seven8

SPEAKER_04
1:31:06 (0:00:13)

feet okay and is it it's assumed then that none of these retail spaces will have anything El spilling out onto the

SPEAKER_12
1:31:20 (0:00:15)

sidewalk well there's a more space available for the southernmost retail unit where the bite gr bite Lane is swinging further east and there would be some room for some small table and chairs immediately outside of the

SPEAKER_04
1:31:35 (0:00:15)

windows yeah it might be getting tight okay and just to verify that the height over the accessible parking space at the back is 5.84

SPEAKER_12
1:31:50 (0:00:07)

MERS the accessible parking will be providing a 2.3 meter requirement

SPEAKER_04
1:31:58 (0:00:05)

no that the height of the because it it's partially covered is it

SPEAKER_12
1:32:04 (0:00:06)

not yes but we have our full 12 foot clear ceiling for the ground level over those areas so

SPEAKER_04
1:32:11 (0:00:05)

right so that that's the 58

SPEAKER_12
1:32:16 (0:00:06)

meters it's not 5.8 meter but I don't believe we require 5.8 for the accessible solve

SPEAKER_04
1:32:23 (0:00:19)

no I was I was looking at I was trying to get the height it's fine can you tell me what's and maybe this is a district question what's the width of the bik

SPEAKER_12
1:32:43 (0:00:07)

lane yeah I don't have that number handy I don't know if Jesse can feel that

SPEAKER_10
1:32:50 (0:00:05)

one

SPEAKER_04
1:32:56 (0:00:07)

second I've got another question so can you explain to me how the garbage room is going to be

SPEAKER_12
1:33:04 (0:00:12)

emptied so the bins will be pulled out to the Lane for pickup via the access route that's provided between the two accessible stalls

SPEAKER_04
1:33:16 (0:00:11)

okay and how are they going to pass the most westerly door if it if they open

SPEAKER_12
1:33:27 (0:00:14)

outward the door we can consider looking at a rollup gate for that garbage room I think that might be a more effective solution but the intent is that door would swing 180 to be fully opened

SPEAKER_04
1:33:41 (0:00:14)

so if it was a rollup door which would potentially have less conflict with people coming in out the door how would people enter that like how would that door get opened for them to go and take

SPEAKER_12
1:33:56 (0:00:14)

their oh sorry yeah I think we could find space for a door on the on the West Side a person door and then have the roll up gate I think there's a bit of tuning that can be done around that area to improve the

SPEAKER_04
1:34:10 (0:00:18)

function okay and I guess this is a question for Jesse as well is there bike lane on both sides of Third

SPEAKER_02
1:34:29 (0:00:13)

Avenue yes so to answer your first question it's 1.5 meters wide and yes there's a bike lane on both sides of Third

SPEAKER_04
1:34:43 (0:00:08)

Avenue yes so it's presumably it's a one way the bike lane is that would

SPEAKER_02
1:34:52 (0:00:03)

be yeah the Assumption for the bike lane

SPEAKER_04
1:34:55 (0:00:21)

yeah okay that's all my questions thank you oh sorry no one more question the planting that's going between the street trees where it just adjacent to where the mid block Crossing is it meant to be grass planted between those

SPEAKER_10
1:35:17 (0:00:12)

trees yeah there is no planting intended there that's just a hatch pattern showing the structural soil underneath beneath okay because the idea is that it' be paved so you can step out of your car

SPEAKER_04
1:35:29 (0:00:06)

super thank

SPEAKER_11
1:35:36 (0:00:02)

you

SPEAKER_09
1:35:38 (0:00:26)

s thanks for the presentation my question was very similar to sora's question first you know can you please show on the foref plan how the waste management concept is and how the access to the garbage truck will be from the garbage

SPEAKER_12
1:36:04 (0:00:43)

room the goal would be that the truck would pull over on the lane and then the bins would be pulled out to the Lane for pickup because we don't have the Headroom to have a full lift over vertically of the garbage bins within the site this is similar to what is being done for the aaji for example and we're having the waste management company review this and confirm that there's no issues with it but to my responses to Sarah I believe there's some refinements that can be done to make sure that access out of that room is easier both for the bins and also for person access and to minimize conflict with people moving in and out of the

SPEAKER_09
1:36:48 (0:00:08)

building okay and so you know the access to the garbage truck will be from the elevator

SPEAKER_12
1:36:57 (0:00:12)

or yes so residents would come down to the lobby on level one and use that Corridor that leads to the west to the Lane and there would be a person door that would allow them to get into the garbage room secure

SPEAKER_09
1:37:09 (0:00:09)

door okay same elevator that they use for the for example to access to parking level yes that's

SPEAKER_10
1:37:19 (0:00:02)

correct okay

SPEAKER_09
1:37:21 (0:00:08)

and so can you also please elaborate more on EV charging and how many are

SPEAKER_12
1:37:30 (0:00:15)

provided so at the moment the project will be 100% rough in for district requirements and another thing that the project is doing is committing to 100% electrified so no G natural gas for the filing

SPEAKER_09
1:37:45 (0:00:09)

thank you and can you also explain it is my understanding that you provide five adaptable units

SPEAKER_12
1:37:55 (0:00:02)

yes that's right yeah

SPEAKER_09
1:37:57 (0:00:15)

okay and how many accessible parking are provided in addition to commercial you know access required accessible parking spaces for commercial

SPEAKER_12
1:38:12 (0:00:08)

yeah so three accessible total are provided so one would be allocated for commercial and so two would be provided for residents

SPEAKER_09
1:38:21 (0:00:01)

for those

SPEAKER_12
1:38:22 (0:00:12)

five yeah so adaptability I think for us doesn't necessarily mean that it's somebody in a wheelchair but it's an enhancement of you know

SPEAKER_09
1:38:35 (0:00:11)

yes so how sorry let me ask this question so how many accessible residential units are provided because we also have a code requirement to for the accessible

SPEAKER_12
1:38:48 (0:00:11)

units yeah at the moment we have't selected the one the accessible unit but we are going to be providing the code and District requirements

SPEAKER_09
1:39:00 (0:00:10)

okay can you also talk about roof drainage and what was the concept for the sustainable drainage

SPEAKER_12
1:39:11 (0:00:17)

considerations yeah the roof will drain fairly conventionally and Peter can jump in here but the Sedum will also delay rainwater infiltration through the building because of the soil medium that will support some of that initial rainfall but Peter do you have

SPEAKER_10
1:39:29 (0:00:14)

any I think Ty you summarized it well there the idea is that there would be some potential for The Green Roof growing medium to retain moisture and allow that to be used by the plant material and then any additional stuff would flow

SPEAKER_08
1:39:43 (0:00:07)

away thank you

SPEAKER_09
1:39:50 (0:00:01)

I'm finished thanks

SPEAKER_06
1:39:52 (0:00:01)

thank

SPEAKER_11
1:39:53 (0:00:10)

you great thank you oh see Beth has left so they be

SPEAKER_05
1:40:03 (0:00:06)

luke I think the yeah the mural

SPEAKER_06
1:40:10 (0:00:07)

of the artwork that's shown at level two is there any is it a placeholder or is that the final artwork that's proposed

SPEAKER_12
1:40:18 (0:00:26)

yeah so it is a placeholder at the moment but the intent is to have a more monochromatic neural along the east side to also kind of keep a more restrained pallet towards the street with the building being quite Pro quite a significant color overall but then more bright elements of color along the cut through and the lane to provide more animation

SPEAKER_06
1:40:44 (0:00:07)

there okay has a process been sort of identified as to how to select an artist or

SPEAKER_12
1:40:52 (0:00:10)

our client is still working through that and whether it's I think the goal though would be to contract an artist directly rather than go through an invitation bid type

SPEAKER_06
1:41:02 (0:00:17)

process okay thanks I would you be able to pull up your level one plan for me please sorry I just don't I didn't bring the drawings with me and I'm in person my first question for the level one would be the could you let me know like what the width is in the lobby Corridor

SPEAKER_05
1:41:20 (0:00:07)

please

SPEAKER_12
1:41:28 (0:00:05)

sure so the width of this area right here is 5 foot

SPEAKER_06
1:41:34 (0:00:17)

6 and the with the clearance in front of the elevator to that wall where the stair is yeah so there we would have six feet okay oh
