Committee constrains size of Domicile development, Council decision to come

25 05 2018

From Councillor Leiper:

***************************************

http://kitchissippiward.ca/content/committee-constrains-size-domicile-development-council-decision-come

On Tuesday, Planning Committee voted to reduce the allowed height of the Domicile-proposed development on Roosevelt by a storey. Committee members supported a motion made by my colleague Tobi Nussbaum at the meeting in recognition of the concerns raised by myself and the community about the inappropriateness of introducing a traditional-mainstreet-style building on a residential street (original proposal pictured).

The motion was carried on a 6-3 split vote, including with my support. While I was seeking an outright rejection of the proposal, I believe this compromise is an improvement over the original.

The amended recommendation still needs to be passed by Council, which will vote on it on June 13. I am contemplating my approach as we near that vote. I reached out yesterday to Domicile and they are still digesting the amendment’s implications.

Councillor Nussbaum’s motion read:

WHEREAS, the Urban Design Review Panel (UDRP) strongly believes that the scale and mass of the building is too large for the size of the site; and

WHEREAS, the UDRP recommends the building be lowered in height to four storeys, with the possibility of stepping back to a fifth storey to improve the transition toward the residential area to the north and west;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that Planning Committee recommend Council approve the following modifications:

•     Amend recommendation 1 to “Planning Committee recommends Council approve an amendment to Zoning By-law 2008-250 for 398, 402 and 406 Roosevelt Avenue to permit a five storey mixed use building as detailed in Document 2”, and

•     Amend recommendation 2, subsection c, by deleting the words “five” and “fifth” and inserting the word “four” and “fourth” in the following paragraph: “Where the building height is greater than five storeys, at or above the fifth storey the building must be setback a minimum of 2m more than the provided setback from the rear lot line; and

•     Amend the words “maximum of six storeys is permitted” to read “maximum of five storeys is permitted” in recommendation 2, subsection c.

 
CARRIED, on a division of 6 yeas and 3 nays, as follows:
YEAS (6): Councillors R. Brockington, R. Chiarelli, J. Cloutier, J. Leiper, T. Nussbaum, S. Qadri
NAYS (3): Councillors S. Blais, A. Hubley, Vice-chair T. Tierney




114 Richmond Rd – Ashcroft Homes Convent Development & Phase II Open House

25 05 2018

From Councillor Leiper

*******************************

We are hosting another Open House regarding Ashcroft Homes’ property at 114 Richmond Rd. You may recall in January, we hosted an Open House to discuss their proposal for an adaptive re-use of the Les Soeurs de la Visitation Convent. They received your feedback and as a result have reevaluated their proposal. The current application is proposing alterations which would include a new 9-storey ‘L’ shaped addition to the rear of the Convent, with the demolition of only the south wall and a portion of the west wing. The convent and the new addition will be a mixture of residential and restaurant uses. The historical courtyard will be reinstated, brought up to grade level and made accessible. The new building addition will require a minor rezoning to allow for new built form within the heritage boundaries.

Ashcroft has also applied for both a Site Plan Amendment and a Minor Rezoning application for the remainder of the undeveloped site. The site plan amendment is to include the location of the new building addition to the convent.  A similar building had been previously approved, however its connection was to the south, rather than connecting to the convent. Also included in the amendment application are changes to the width of the previously approved senior residence building (west side of the site).

The second minor rezoning application is to include a 6-story step-back on the seniors building, where only 4-storeys are approved in the zoning by-law (by-law 256). Additionally, the minor rezoning application will seek to allow for a permitted projection on the rooftops of two of the buildings, this projection will be used as amenity space for the residents of each building.

We invite you to come and learn more about these applications for the proposed development:

Wednesday, June 6

7:00-8:30pm

Van Lang Field House (29 Van Lang Pvt)

Information on the proposed development will be available from Ashcroft Homes, and City of Ottawa staff in both Heritage and Planning will be on hand to field additional questions regarding process. Of course, we are also interested in your feedback. Once the plans are available online, we will make sure to circulate them in the newsletter. We encourage you to send our office, as well as the planners, notes with your thoughts on the proposed development.

At the bottom of this post, you can review the proposed Site Plan for the entire site, as well as a rendering of the 4-storey residential seniors building.

Thank you!
