Redevelopment planned for Mountain Shadow Pub site
The site of the Mountain Shadow Pub in North Burnaby is being proposed for a redevelopment.
A rezoning application has been made for the property at 7174 Barnet Rd., on the southeast corner at Pandora Street, to allow for a three-storey, mixed-use project, says a city staff report.
The Craftsman-style project would include a small commercial space on the ground floor, 21 stacked townhouse units and underground parking with vehicle access from Barnet Road.
The housing units would comprise nine studios of about 540 square feet, 11 two-bedroom units of about 1,075 square feet, and one three-bedroom unit at 1,084 square feet.
The property was vacant until 1979 when Burnaby city council approved a rezoning to allow the neighbourhood pub to be built. The property owner is now asking to rezone it for a project similar to one approved in 2010 for the site across Pandora Street.
Mountain Shadow Pub, long a popular hangout for Simon Fraser University students, won't be closing anytime soon.
Pub owner Mike Anastasi said by email that they recently signed a two-year extension to their lease "so it will not be developed for a while."
A public hearing for the rezoning application will be held Tuesday, June 24 at 7 p.m. in Burnaby city hall council chambers.
