_ (Via City of Ottawa) _ ** Ottawa ** – The year’s first meeting of the City’s Planning Committee today focused on transit-oriented development in Westboro and in Centretown.
The Committee approved a zoning amendment to permit a four-storey, 13-unit apartment building at 404 Eden Avenue in Westboro. Located near two rapid transit stations, the site will be well served by public transit, in keeping with City Council’s aim to promote transit-oriented development.
Zoning amendments were also approved that would allow development of two neighbouring properties on Bronson Avenue. The first is a six-storey, mixed-use building at 770 Bronson Avenue , at the southwest corner of Carling Avenue. The second, just south of that development at 774 Bronson Avenue , would be a 12-storey, 172-unit mixed-use tower designed primarily for university students.
Reports for all three proposed developments will go to City Council on Wednesday, February 8.
