The City of Ottawa has received a Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan Control applications to facilitate the construction of a four-storey low-rise apartment building with four residential units at 262 Armstrong Street. 1 vehicular parking space within a carport structure is proposed.

The subject property has a frontage of 9.37 metres on Armstrong Street and a depth of 15.24 metres, and is presently occupied by a two-storey detached dwelling. The subject property is approximately 380 metres from the Tunney’s Pasture Light-Rail Transit and bus transfer station.

The area surrounding the subject property is characterized by low-rise residential buildings and mixed-use buildings containing retail and office uses. North of the subject property is a two-storey commercial office building surrounded by one- and two-storey residential townhomes and commercial uses in the adjacent blocks. The area to the east of the subject property includes Parkdale Park, as well as mid- to high-rise residential and office buildings along Wellington Street West. To the south of the subject property is the West Park Bowling Alley and other low-rise commercial uses along Wellington Street West. The area to the west is generally characterized by low-rise apartments and low-rise residential buildings.

The proposed development seeks to redevelop the subject property with a four-storey, four-unit low-rise apartment building containing 1 one-bedroom unit and 2 two-bedroom units. The proposal contains a fourth-floor mezzanine and rooftop terrace accessible to the upper-most unit, 1 vehicular parking space, as well as 2 exterior and 4 interior bicycle parking spaces.

The application for a Zoning-By Law Amendment seeks to amend the rear yard setback and stepback provisions within the Mixed-Use Centre zone, Parkdale Park subzone (MC16 H(20)) in the City of Ottawa Zoning By-law 2008-250.
