According to the chief executive officer of the Nanaimo Affordable Housing Society (NAHS), Andrea Blakeman, it will consist of a four-storey apartment building and eight townhouses. Once construction is complete, the housing complex will be operated by NAHS.

Parksville council deferred to grant the development permit at their previous meeting on Feb. 17 due to concerns with a lack of green space and balconies for the units.

According to Daryoush Firouzli of Daryoush Firouzil Architechture Inc., there will now be 1.3 acres of green space that will not be developed.
