Open House #2 - 1960 Scott St (Trailhead Site)

You are here

Our office, with the applicant, are hosting a second Open House for the proposed development at 1960 Scott St (Trailhead site) on March 22. The application for the zoning amendment is set to proceed to Planning Committee on March 28, but since there have been some revisions to the Site Plan, we wanted the opportunity to an additional round of feedback and discussion. 

The most recently revised plan is attached here, at the bottom as a .PDF and as a .JPF image as well. Some changes have been made from the initial versions which went out to public circulation, as follows:

  • The south-east corner of the building has been pulled back 10.4 metres from the closest lot on Clifton Road
  • Additional stepbacks have been incorporated into the south-east corner on lower and upper storeys

The applicant has committed to improvements to cycling and pedestrian infrastructure on Scott Street where it abuts their property, will be designing an outdoor patio on the ground floor to activate the public realm, and approximately 35% of the rental units will be designed to support the 30th percentile of average gross annual income, as per Official Plan direction. 

For more information on this development proposal, we hope that you can attend the Open House on March 22:
