CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. – An apartment building is coming to 302 Birch Street.

The building is proposed to have one-bedroom, studio, and micro rental units which will range from 312 to 680 square feet.

Council has found that all multi-family zoning regulations can be met and is consistent with similar medium-density zones found in other municipalities as well as other developments within Campbell River.

According to a release from the city, the proposal also meets the infill and growth management objectives outlined in the city’s community plan, especially in relation to the location’s access to amenities and transit.

The units, particularly the one-bedroom and studio units, will offer more housing options in the local rental market, which has vacancies hovering just above zero per cent.
