Revised Concept Plan 

 Revised Site Plan

 

Development Description

The applicant originally proposed to amend the Official Plan and Zoning of the subject lands to change the designation from Low Density Residential to Medium Density Residential on Schedule 'E' – Residential Density and Schedule 'N' – Auburn North Secondary Plan of the Official Plan; and further to amend the R.1 Residential Zoning District (with various site specific regulations) to a modified version of the R.5 – Residential Zoning District.

The proponent has revised the applications in response to comments received from the circulation of the original concept to agencies, departments, and the public in January 2020.  The revised applications propose to amend the Official Plan and Zoning of the subject lands to change designation from Low Density Residential to Medium Density Residential on Schedule ‘E’ – Residential Density and Schedule ‘N’ – Auburn North Secondary Plan of the Official Plan; and further to amend the R.1 Residential Zoning District (with various site specific regulations) to a modified version of the R.4 – Residential Zoning District. 

The original submission proposed a combination of townhouse and apartment condominium units.  The revised submission eliminates the two 6-storey 61-unit apartment buildings and now proposes the development of the lands for 23 townhouse blocks, ranging in height from 2 to 3 storeys with a total of 162 units.  The townhouse units are proposed together with driveways, surface parking, and landscaped areas.  A minimum ratio of 2 parking spaces per unit are proposed in the revised concept. A connection to the Rotary Greenway Trail is also proposed at the west boundary of the subject lands. The revised plan also differs from the original with less hard surface area and increased open space.  Smaller blocks and increased spacing between buildings along Armour Road are also noted.

The application proposes to modify the regulations of the R.5 – Residential Zoning District, to permit the proposed medium density residential development.
