Revised Proposal

A community consultation meeting on the development application proposing two 31 storey apartment buildings on these lands was held on May 6, 2013. A working group made up of local residents and the applicant was subsequently established. The purpose of the working group was to identify possible solutions to the issues raised by the community concerning the proposed development. Five working group meetings were held to discuss issues of: height; density; massing; building type; setbacks; separation distances; wind and shadow impacts; light, view and privacy; loss of trees and green space; unit mix; site servicing; environment; and traffic. 


As a result of the working group process the applicant indicated the proposal would be modified to take into account many of the concerns raised by the community.  A revised proposal that reduced the height from 31 to 26 stories and reduced the number of residential units from 610 to 534, among other matters, was recently presented to the working group.

The open house affords the community an opportunity to view the revised proposal. Comments sheets will be made available.
