The purpose of the official plan amendment application is to add a site-specific exception to the high-density residential designation to increase the maximum density from 185 units per site hectare to 755 units per site hectare. The purpose of the zoning by-law amendment application is to: add ‘townhouse dwelling’ and ‘temporary sales office’ as a permitted use; increase the maximum building height from 7 storeys (existing) to 27 storeys, add site-specific zoning standards including maximum net floor area, minimum building setbacks; and, reduce the minimum number of parking spaces required from between a minimum of 1.0-1.5 parking spaces per apartment unit and a minimum of 2.0 parking spaces per townhouse unit to a minimum of 1 parking space per dwelling unit (townhouse and apartment).
The effect of this application is to replace the existing 7 storey 59 unit rental apartment building with a 27 storey apartment building with a 6 storey podium and 2 storey townhouses at grade. A total of 314 units are proposed together with 1,689 square metres of amenity space (5.38 square metres per unit), 314 parking spaces, 314 bicycle parking spaces and one loading space. All 314 units are proposed to be rental in tenure.
The subject parcel of land is located on the south side of Speers Road, east of Kerr Street.
