Towers approved for Lower Capilano

DNV council votes 5-2 for Larco highrises at CapWest Club site JEREMY SHEPHERD jshepherd@nsnews.com

Towers are going up in Lower Capilano. In their last action before standing for reelection, District of North

Vancouver council voted 5-2 to bring Larco’s 451-unit development to the former CapWest Athletic Club site, located west of Capilano Road between Fullerton Avenue and Curling Road. The phased development

includes 18-and 12-storey towers, a new community centre, four low-rise buildings and 20 townhouse units to be built by a numbered company owned by Larco. Bringing the project to an area described as a “blight” and a “garbage dump” constitutes a longawaited turning point

for the neighbourhood, according to Coun. Alan Nixon. “The community of Lower Cap will see the light at the end of a long tunnel,” he said, describing his relief at approving the project with two weeks left in his 12-year tenure on council. The revised agreement will penalize Larco if the

Search for lost guns prompts West Bay lockdown BRENT RICHTER brichter@nsnews.com

West Vancouver police and North Shore Rescue volunteers found two missing loaded handguns that caused a temporary lockdown at West Bay elementary. Police responded to the Westmount neighbourhood Wednesday evening after a distraught man began pounding on the door of a home on the 3000-block of Rosebery Avenue and asking the owners to call the police. After he’d been taken into custody under the Mental Health Act, the man told police he’d discarded two 9-millimetre pistols, somewhere between his home on Cypress Bowl Road and the area near the school, said Const. Jeff Palmer,West Vancouver police spokesman. See Guns page 3
