Holland Cross addition (1560 Scott St) - OPA, Zoning By-Law Amendment, Site Plan + Open House Webinar

You are here

Holland Cross, 1560 Scott St. is an existing commercial complex that consists of two 7 storey, 100,000 sf office towers sitting on a single storey ground floor/podium of approximately 90,000 sf. Defined as a Mixed-Use Centre, it is a mixture of retail, food service and professional office space. At the time of development in 1987/8, the project was designed for a future third office tower in the Southeast corner. In the original development the town houses to the south were part of the project, but these have subsequently been severed off.

In lieu of the third office tower, the owners are now proposing a 29-storey building with 337 rental units. The main entrance to the building is from Hamilton North with secondary entrances from the podium and from the retail mall within the complex. There is a step-back at the fifth-floor level, again at the 28th floor, both east and south elevations and on the west side of the 29th floor. In addition, there is a covered walkway along the south side of the podium. In the existing Holland Cross development there are two levels of underground parking which can accommodate approximately 780 vehicles. This project is proposing to provide 30 indoor visitor parking spaces as well as bicycle parking at the front of the building and on the podium. The development is also providing bicycle storage for every unit as well as secure individual tenant storage.

The application has not been submitted yet, but once it is we will encourage the community to review the full details on DevApps. We are hosting a community open house in September to discuss the proposed development further: 

This open house has been postponed with a new date TBD

 

Please consider sending us feedback on the proposed development via Jeff.Leiper@ottawa.ca and / or Fiona.Mitchell@ottawa.ca.
