Superstore development application

From the City of Ottawa Planning Department.

I wanted to take this opportunity to inform you that a Zoning By-law amendment and Site Plan Control application has been submitted for 190 Richmond Road (D02-02-16-0031 (Zoning) / D07-12-16-0055 (Site Plan)).

The applications were deemed complete for circulation on May 24, 2016.

The proposed development is for a six-storey retirement home with 193 units, below grade parking (109 spaces), bicycle parking (48 spaces) and other site alterations such as landscaping and possibly reconfiguring the existing surface parking lot. The proposed retirement home is situated to the rear of the site near the corner of Kirkwood Avenue and Byron Avenue.

The purpose of the Zoning By-law amendment is to incorporate the entire site into a Traditional Mainstreet (TM) zone; the rear of the property is currently in an R2 zone. Specific to the proposed retirement home, the application also seeks relief for the rear yard setback and building height. Using TM zoning as a basis, the rear yard requires a setback of 7.5m, whereas 6.0m is proposed, and the height permitted in the existing TM zone on the property is 15m, whereas the proposal requests a height of 21m. Other zoning deficiencies may be identified through review of the application.

It should also be noted that given the size of the property and portion of the site being developed, the City will be requesting land to be conveyed and dedicated as parkland in accordance with the Parkland Dedication by-law. The size of the park will be approximately 1000m2. The ultimate location/shape will be subject to the review process and members of the public will be included for feedback. Comments on possible park programming are also encouraged.

A location map and context plan is attached for reference.

The target date for Planning Committee for the zoning amendment application is August 23, 2016.
