The City of Ottawa has received an application for a zoning bylaw amendment and site plan control at 306 Livery Street that would allow for construction of a pair of 2.5 storey, 12-unit apartment blocks.
From a summary document posted online this week:
“The property at 306 Livery Street is located on the north side of Livery Street and to the south of a major hydro corridor and a portion of the Trans Canada Trail. The site is otherwise surrounded by existing and/or planned residential developments (to the immediate south and east) as well as a mixed-use area and proposed north south arterial road and transit corridor to the west.
An application for Zoning Bylaw Amendment has been submitted in order to apply a Residential Fourth Density (R4) zone across all of the subject property, which would have the effect of permitting a whole range of housing types including single detached dwellings, semi-detached dwellings, duplex dwellings, three-unit dwellings, townhouse dwellings and low-rise apartment dwellings.
An application for Site Plan Control has also been submitted in order to construct a pair of 2.5 storey, 12-unit apartment blocks at the westerly end of the subject parcel. Associated parking is proposed to be located at the rear of the dwellings within the hydro corridor, and an amenity area is proposed on the site of one of the dwellings.”
(The apartment blocks are similar in size to a development recently proposed for near Fernbank and Robert Grant.)
