Residents will see some work being done on the Bridgewater site at the bottom of Elizabeth & Lakeshore, to prepare for the construction of the sales centre for the condos. Site plan approval has been issued for the sales centre, and a building permit is expected shortly.

The project consists of a 22-storey condo, 7-storey condo, and 8-storey four star hotel (hotelier still to be confirmed), with retail along Lakeshore Road. There is a central public plaza in the middle of the three buildings, with connecting walkways to Lakeshore Road, and steps leading to a public pathway along the waterfront that will connect with the Spencer Smith Park walkway.

Other updates in the project include:

• Minor site plan approval application was filed on November 26, 2013, with a resubmission of revised drawings (due to some minor design changes to the building) on December 23, 2013. City staff are working on expediting the review process so that Mady may secure a building permit as soon as possible.

• Building permit application was filed on December 19, 2013.

• Halton Region Conservation Authority permit, based on the current plans, was issued on January 3, 2014.

• Region of Halton servicing permit was issued on January 8, 2014

In anticipation of receiving the building permit shortly, Mady plans to mobilize to the site in order to commence installation of the construction trailer, layout work, installation of siltation fence and control, clearing of trees and removal of the stockpiled material on or about Monday Jan.13/14.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.

  1. Do not like to see anymore high-rise development along the shoreline. The current towers on the north side of Lakeshore are enough! Burlington did not become one of the best cities in Canada for countless years because we developed like this.

  2. I have always opposed the siting of such a huge development on such a prime piece of Burlington land.
    What a shame it will be for the majority of us to lose such beautiful views of the lake which now only a select few can enjoy. In my view this development is a sad day for Burlington ,where once there was a charming waterfront now there are walls of condos. It really is a crying shame.

What's your take?
