City staff are recommending council issue a development permit for four mixed-use buildings in Osprey Village.

The permit will allow Mosaic Homes to build 24 more units on four parcel located at the centre of the waterfront community in Pitt Meadows. The four three-storey buildings would house 12 ground-level commercial units, almost double the minimum square footage required by the development covenant.

In a report to council, city planner Dana Parr said the proposed buildings on the corner would be clad in brick and are reminiscent of an old Yaletown building.

The other two buildings are designed to look like a collection of townhouses with shops below.
Two waterfront lots set aside for a chapel and a restaurant or pub remain vacant.
The city said the development of the chapel and pub rest with the developer and no timeline has been set.
