About the planning applications

78 and 82 Eastview Road (File: OZS19-004) – Ward 2

The subject lands are located on the north side of Eastview Road between Starwood Drive and Auden Road.

The property owner has revised their development concept and is now proposing 30 cluster townhouses as well as a five (5) storey, 40-unit apartment building.

To accommodate the revised proposal, the Zoning Bylaw Amendment application was resubmitted to the City and now proposes to rezone the subject lands from the current Urban Reserve (UR) zone and Specialized Residential Single Detached with a Holding Provision (R.1B-39(H)) zone in part to the General Apartment (R.4A) zone, Cluster Townhouse (R.3A) zone, Wetland (WL) zone and Conservation Land (P.1) Zone.

The property owner is proposing to redevelop the lands to include two (2), seven-storey apartment buildings with a total of 141 residential units as well as a separate two (2) storey commercial building.

As part of the redevelopment, the applicant has applied to amend the Official Plan from the existing ‘Service Commercial’ designation to the ‘Medium Density Residential’ designation with site specific policies.

The applicant has also applied to amend the Zoning Bylaw from the current Service Commercial One (SC.1) zone to a Specialized General Apartment (R.34-?) zone with site-specific regulations.
