Hotel, vet zoning passed in Terrace, B.C.

City council has adopted zoning amendments helping clear the way for the construction of a hotel and for renovations for a new vet clinic

City council has adopted zoning amendments helping clear the way for the construction of a hotel and for renovations for a new veterinary clinic.

The hotel would belong to the regional Sunshine Inn and Suites network owned by Smithers developer Kim Tran.

Tran has already received a zoning amendment allowing him to build more floors than normally permitted under C3 zoning and detailing how he’ll be able to add apartment/condominiums to the planned 90-100 hotel rooms.

“The latest floor plans show 13 apartments with 11 on the fifth floor and two on the fourth,” Block said.

Tran’s other hotels are in Smithers, Burns Lake and Houston and he has said he hopes to begin construction of the $12-14 million  project this fall.

Block said that the next step will be that Tran applies for a development permit, and that Tran’s goal of building a foundation this fall would be “weather dependent and based on Mr. Tran’s willingness to work through the winter weather on this project.”

The highways ministry has also issued a permit that will allow the development to go through after studying the effect on traffic flow on the highway outside the proposed location.

As for the veterinary clinic, a zoning amendment was needed for the All West mall at the corner of Keith and Tetrault. Renovations in an empty location at the mall can now start for Dr. Jatinder Kang of Vancouver.

The clinic will be for small animals, and the name, if approved by the veterinary medical association, is The Terrace Animal Hospital.
