Development Approvals

Coriolis was retained by the North Vancouver School District to manage conceptual planning and rezoning of a former school site on Lonsdale Avenue to include a new School District administration building and residential development opportunities that generate capital to pay for the administration facility. Coriolis previously helped the Vancouver School Board with a similar project at Broadway and Granville in Vancouver.

Shipyards Redevelopment

Following rezoning, were also retained to manage the development permit applications and assist with subdivision, servicing, and amenity design approval.
