The development permit application shows plans for two stories of restaurant space, with a rooftop patio and a third storey with residential units.

Across the two floors, the restaurant would be able to seat 145 diners, including 30 on the second-floor terrace. The third storey would have three two-bedroom apartments.

The application was submitted to the city in June and there is currently no set date for it to land on councillors’ desks.
