174 Forward Ave Development Open House - Tuesday, February 13

You are here

The owner of 174 Forward Avenue in Mechanicsville is seeking permissions including for an Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and site plan to build an 8-storey, 24-unit apartment building with six parking spaces. The application is available on DevApps here.

The secondary plan, just a few years old, calls for a limit on this site of four storeys. After lots of discussion and deliberate thought, the interior of Mechanicsville in that secondary plan was settled to be R4 zoning, and the developer is seeking an R5 with site-specific exceptions related to setbacks. While comments were nominally due on December 29, this was not circulated according to the standard practice we've established in our office, so comments will be considered for some reasonable period. As such, we are moving forward with an open house where the developer will review their proposed project, and be available to field any questions or take feedback. The open house is:

Tuesday, February 13 


Bayview Innovation Centre - foundry (main room off the lobby)

The open house will follow our standard agenda. After the doors open, residents will have the opportunity to review display boards of the proposed development, before the applicant moves into running through the project at a high-level. Following that, we will open the floor to questions. City planning staff will also be on hand to discuss the planning process. 

We look forward to seeing you there and discussion this application further. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments or concerns in the meantime!
