138 Forward Avenue - Site Plan Control Application

You are here

A Site Plan Control application to construct a four-storey, 18-unit apartment dwelling at 138 Forward has been received by the City of Ottawa.

The subject property is located on the east side of Forward Avenue, between Burnside Avenue and Lyndale Avenue, within the Mechanicsville neighbourhood of the Kichissippi Ward. The property currently includes a two-storey single-family dwelling (to be demolished) fronting on Forward Avenue.

The site is surrounded by a mix of low-rise residential buildings as well as mid- and high-rise towers to the southwest and northwest along Parkdale Avenue. The application has been submitted in order to facilitate the construction of a four-storey, 18-unit apartment dwelling, which would include ten two-bedroom units, four one-bedroom units and four bachelor units. The proposed development does not require any relief from the Zoning By-law and adheres to all zoning provisions.

Our office is holding a community open house to give immediate and close neighbours the opportunity to review the details further, and ask questions from the developer and City staff.
