424 Churchill Avenue N - Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and Site Plan Control Applications

You are here

The City of Ottawa has received an Official Plan Amendment application, Zoning By-law Amendment application, and Site Plan Control application for 424 Churchill Avenue N to facilitate the construction of an eight (8) storey, mid-rise residential apartment building with 58 dwelling units and 31 (26 residential and 5 visitor) parking spaces located in two levels of underground parking. A total of 360 square meters of amenity space is provided via private balconies and communal rear yard amenity space.

The subject site is located between Danforth Avenue to the north and Byron Avenue to the south. The subject site currently contains one low-rise detached building that was previously used as a laundromat. The site has an area of approximately 1007 square meters with approximately 25.31 meters of frontage along the east side of Churchill Avenue North, and slopes downwards towards the north.

An Official Plan Amendment seeks to amend Schedule C2 of the Richmond Road/Westboro Secondary Plan to change the maximum permitted height for the subject site from 24m to 27.5m. A Zoning By-law Amendment application is requested to seek relief from the Zoning By-law on the following: building height, front yard setback, and corner side yard setback.

The submission is now live on Devapps, where you can review the application and all supporting documents.

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