2006-2026 Scott Street and 314/318 Athlone (Former Granite Curling Club) Zoning By-law Amendment Application + Open House

You are here

The City of Ottawa has received a Zoning By-law Amendment application to facilitate the construction of three high-rise residential towers (20-storeys, 36-storeys, and 40-storeys respectively) along both Scott Street and Athlone Avenue.

The subject property, known municipally as 2006-2026 Scott Street and 314 Athlone Avenue, are located in the Kitchissippi ward of the City of Ottawa. The properties are located at the south-west corner of Scott Street and Athlone Avenue. The subject property has a frontage along Scott Street of 98.35 metres and 33.34 metres along Athlone Avenue. The area of the subject property is 6,088.43 square metres. The parcels presently feature the Granite Curling Club, two single storey commercial units on Scott Street and a single detached dwelling unit at 314 Athlone Avenue. Directly north of the subject property is the transitway associated with the Westboro Rapid Transit Station. North of the Transitway is a predominantly residential area, characterized by single and semi-detached dwelling unit. East of the subject property, on McRae Avenue, is primarily residential, with some commercial amenities located in proximity.  Immediately south of the subject property are the Lion’s Park and the Ottawa Gymnastics Centre. West of the subject lands is a primarily residential area, with commercial spaces found on and closer to Churchill Avenue N.

The proposed redevelopment will consist of three residential high-rise buildings and a pedestrian plaza and thoroughfare. The proposed towers all encompass five story podiums. A 20-storey tower will contain 198 units, a 36-storey tower will contain 344 units, and a 40-storey tower will contain 322 units. In total, there will be 868 units provided on the site. Units will consist of studios, one-bedroom units (plus those with dens), and two-bedroom units (including those with dens.) There will be 567 parking spaces provided across the site (479 residents, 88 visitors) and 643 bike spaces (203 horizontal, 440 vertical). The redevelopment of this site will require the demolition of the existing Granite Curling Club, commercial units, and their adjacent surface parking lots.
