Colwood approved a 187-unit highrise development at Veterans Memorial Parkway and Latoria Road, across from the Latoria Walk subdivision.

A 0.96 hectare plot, which at present is mostly undeveloped treed land, was rezoned for a tiered building ranging in height from five to 11 storeys, with underground parking and ground floor commercial space.

At an Oct. 19 public heading, several neighbours expressed concern over the building size, construction noise, and what impact the influx of residents would have on traffic levels.

As part of the amenity package developers are required to provide the City based on building density, Mojtaba Shahab of Parsi Development agreed to install a new roundabout at the end of VMP worth $1-milliion, and rehabilitate stream habitat at Latoria Creek, which runs through the property.
