The Windermere Apartments Inc. & Roy Street Investment Inc. are proposing to convert the existing buildings located at 61 & 65 Roy Street each to a 5 unit-multiple dwellings, with surface parking. Both subject lands currently contain a mixed-use building with 3 residential units and 2 office units. There is no change to the exterior of the buildings proposed, as all the residential units will be within the existing buildings. To facilitate the redevelopment, the owners have requested to add a special policy area to the Official Plan to allow the “Multiple Dwelling – 5 Units” use, and that a special use provision be added to the zoning by-law to allow the “Multiple Dwelling – 5 units” use. More details are available on the PDF distributed by the city to neighbouring property owners here.
The Planning Act allows property owners make applications to change the Official Plan and Zoning By-law. City staff review each request and write a report that will make a professional recommendation to City Council, who will make the decision to approve or refuse the application. Before staff prepare a report for City Council to consider, we are gathering public input. If you would like to send comments, please send them by July 27, 2021.
