Choice Properties Real Estate Investment Trust has applied to the city to construct two one-storey commercial buildings in the Brown’s Independent parking lot.
The two buildings are according to the proposal submitted to the city:
- One at the southwest corner of the site with three tenants; 413 square metres in size (building B).
- One at the northwest corner with three tenants and 818 square metres in size (building C).
“Regard was given to orienting the new buildings to the street and encouraging more pedestrian-friendly built form along Stittsville Main Street,” the planning and design rationale submission said. “The parking lot (would be) reconfigured to promote safer access to, and circulation through, the site for pedestrians and vehicles using the driveways from Stittsville Main Street.”
The civic address for the site is 1251 Stittsville Main St.
Choice Properties REIT is the largest real estate investment trust in Canada, spun off from Loblaw Cos., and is based in Toronto. It is the same company that owns the plaza at 1300 Stittsville Main St.
The proposal is open to public comment until June 18, 2018. Contact city planner Stream Shen with your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (613) 580-2424, ext. 24488.
