Zoning by-law amendment proposal re: Westboro Station 2 (the former Bourk site)

11 06 2008

… a.k.a. the proposed development at the corner of Richmond and Roosevelt Ave.

We’ve just received a copy of a proposal being considered by the Planning, Transit and Enviroment Department. Here’s a snippet:

“The applicant is proposing to demolish the buildings currently on the property and replacing them with a new mixed-use building with commerical on the ground floor and residential uses above. The applicant is requesting amendments to zoning performance standards in order to allow the development. These include an increase in height to 28 metres [8-storeys], a reduction in the Corner Side Yard to 1.0 metre, a reduction in parking from 212 spaces to 180 and in the number of loading spaces from three to two.

  • Read the rest of the document in PDF format here.
  • Here’s something interesting: check out the PDF of the “Planning Rationale” document, as posted on the City of Ottawa website.
  • If you have anything to say about this issue, comments need to be received by Douglas James by July 4, 2008. Your emails are valuable feedback. Please take a moment to write or call and let the City of Ottawa know what you think.  
  • Please consider coming out to our village meeting on June 17th.
