The property is approximately 0.07 ha (0.17 acres), is located within the Comprehensive Development CD-2 Zone and is designated Village Commercial. The unit in which the retail store is proposed is adjacent to the Village Baker and is approximately 613 square feet in size, located on the ground floor.
