Proposed 4-storey at 92 Plains Rd E resubmitted as 6-storey; neighbourhood meeting Dec. 7

The city has received an Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment to permit the development of a six-storey mixed use building at 92 Plains Rd E with office/commercial space on the ground floor, 50 residential units above, and two levels of underground parking. The proposal is a resubmission of an application which was deemed complete on May 16, 2016 which contemplated a four-storey building consisting of office/commercial uses on the ground floor and residential above, having a density of 111 units per hectare.

The revised development will front onto and have pedestrian and vehicular access from Plains Road East. The proposal includes 16 surface parking spaces and 54 underground spaces. The underground parking will be accessed via a ramp on the south side of the site. The fifth and sixth storeys of the proposed building will be terraced in order to mitigate its impact on Plains Road East.

The subject lands are designated Residential – Medium Density within the City’s Official Plan. This designation allows ground or non-ground oriented housing units with a density ranging between 26 and 50 units per hectare. The revised proposal has a proposed density of 230 units per hectare.

Neighbourhood Meeting

A second Neighbourhood Meeting will be held to discuss the revised proposal. Details are as follows:

Date: Thursday Dec. 7, 2017
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: St. Matthews Church, Parish Hall
126 Plains Rd. E., Burlington, ON

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.
