Village Square for sale

Burlington's Village Square The Village Square property at Pine, Elizabeth and Pearl streets in downtown Burlington has been offered for sale for as a “significant residential development” opportunity, or alternatively as a “repositioning opportunity” that would retain and capitalize on the historic town square feel and unique shops here.

If some or all of the site is redeveloped, the Official Plan permits a height for this site of four storeys with a possibility to go to eight storeys. The zoning on the site permits four storeys. Some of the properties are on the Heritage Registry, but none are designated.

Your Take:  What’s your vision for Village Square. Please comment below or email me at
My Take:   This quaint enclave of shops and historic buildings is a jewel in Burlington’s downtown and needs to be preserved. Though it has been struggling with empty storefronts in recent years, there are complex reasons for that, including the economy and the layout of our downtown, which doesn’t easily draw people off of Brant Street to the shops a few blocks over.  I will be watching what happens here very closely and keeping residents informed with a view to maintaining the character of this area.

Written by Marianne Meed Ward

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.
