A developer wants to build a six-building, 491-unit residential development on
The proposed high-density development by the Tricar Group, located on land just south of Brock Road Nursery at 1888 Gordon Street, would include two 14-storey buildings, one 10-storey building and two four-storey buildings.
The units would be predominantly apartments along with 21 townhouses.
The 3.19 hectare site currently contains a house and an accessory building.
A statutory public meeting on the proposed official plan and zoning by-law amendment needed for the proposal takes place at City Council's planning meeting on April 10 starting at 6:30 p.m. The public has to register in advance to appear as a delegation on the matter.
The developer needs a zoning by-law amendment that would allow 14 storeys. Currently 10 is the maximum for that property.
The applicant also is seeking:
- an official plan amendment from "general residential" to "high density residential"
- townhouses as a permitted use
- density easements that would allow 175 units per hectare as opposed to the current 150 units/hectare
- side yard and distance between building allowances
Access to the development would be off
