335 Roosevelt Avenue – Resubmission #2 – OPA and ZBA Applications – Blog Post + Open House Recording

The applicants for the proposed development at 335 Roosevelt have resubmitted their development application to the City of Ottawa. Previously, the submission included two high-rise residential buildings of 21 and 18 storeys and 4 low-rise residential buildings. As many know, development applications were previously submitted in 2011 to permit the development of two (2) high-rise towers on the subject property, with building heights of 14 and 16 storeys, respectively. These applications were approved by Council and were subsequently appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Scott Street construction update

Construction on Scott Street to prepare the section from the Parkway (with a temporary connecting bus road to Churchill) to Tunney's for the bus detour continues to be the focus of much of my office's attention. Pedestrian and cyclist accessibility has been an ongoing issue in a tight and complicated space. I'd like to thank the Mayor and City Manager's offices for working with me to emphasize with the contractor the need to maintain safe passage.

LRT OVERNIGHT WORK AT ROOSEVELT SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEKEND

As we posted September 24, the bridge construction at Roosevelt is set to begin Friday. This work will include overnight work. We’ve attached the notice provided by our Stakeholder Relations team and appreciate residents’ patience through this work.

Should anyone want a more specific schedule, we’ve also attached the very latest schedule we’ve received. It can be a very fascinating process to watch.

Should that schedule change, we will update this post accordingly.
