The Town of Oakville has received a complete application by Amico Properties Inc./Spruce Partners Inc. for a proposed official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendment.
The purpose of this appliction is to amend the Main Street 1 designation of the Livable Oakville Plan by adding a site-specific exception to allow: an increase in height from four to six storeys; for the seniors residence use to occupy the ground floor without commercial, community, cultural or limited office use as would be otherwise required; and, for the building to be stepped back at the fourth rather than the third storey.
The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment seeks to rezone the lands to a site-specific MU 1 zone which would permit a maximum building height of 6 storeys, and provide for site-specific modifications to building setbacks.
The effect of this application is to redevelop the subject lands with a six storey retirement home with 230 suites inclusive of memory care, assisted living and independent living suites. All suites are proposed to be rental in tenure. 110 parking stalls are proposed with limited surface parking along Wilson Street with the balance of parking located below grade. Outdoor amenity space is proposed toward the center of the site which would consist of a memory care garden court, an outdoor terrace, and a dining area backing onto Westwood Park.
The subject parcel of land is located on the north side of Rebecca Street between Kerr Street and Wilson Street
At this time there are no other applications, under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended, pertaining to the subject lands.
