map of impacted areaOwner: F.S. Collingwood Development  

Agent: Bennet MacNeil

Description:  The proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments is to re-designate and rezone the subject property in support of a six-storey mixed-use residential-commercial building with 101 residential units, approximately 330 square metres of at-grade commercial space, underground and at-grade parking, and a continuation of the waterfront trail system around the perimeter of the site.

The proposed Official Plan Amendment would re-designate the property, within the context of the shipyardsShipyards Special Policy Area, from the existing Commercial and Parkland designations to Mixed-Use Exception and Parkland designations.  The Mixed-Use policy exceptions proposed include permissions for residential units on the ground floor of the building (except along Side Launch Way), a minimum requirement of 300 square metres for ground floor commercial space, a residential dwelling cap of 101 units and a requirement for a public plaza at the end of the Hurontario Street extension.  The proposed redesignation of Parkland would entail a reconfiguration of the waterfront trail system around the perimeter of the site.  The Official Plan Amendment would also address policy changes resulting from the removal of the property from the existing Shipyards Special Policy Area Commercial designation.  These changes would include the deletion of requirements for minimum commercial gross floor area and a stand-alone restaurant on the site. 

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would rezone the property from Deferred Commercial (DC) and Recreation (REC) Zones to Downtown Commercial – Exception (C1-X) and Recreation (REC) Zones to realize the development proposal and associated reconfiguring of parkland.  Exception provisions for the proposed Downtown Commercial – Exception (C1-X) include permissions for ground-floor residential dwelling units (except along Side Launch Way), a maximum building height of 28 metres, a maximum front yard setback of 31.0 metres, a minimum vehicular entrance width of 4.4 meters, and a maximum bicycle space requirement of 18 spaces.
