The City of Ottawa’s Planning Committee has approved zoning amendments to permit new residential communities in the western-are communities of Stittsville and Kanata.
In Stittsville, along Hazeldean Road, the committee approved a zoning change to permit 76 stacked townhouses and 10 back-to-back townhouses.
Developer Hazeldean Crossing Inc. (a division of GNCR Developments Inc.), through their agent Fotenn Consultants Inc., submitted Site Plan Control and major Zoning By-law Amendment applications last year for the site.
The land’s previous owner had received approval around 2007 for a mixed-use development at 5924 Hazeldean Rd., where a one-storey commercial building would be constructed with a four-storey apartment in the north corner.
‘The previous owner of the land received zoning approval around 2007 for a mixed-use development to be built at 5924 Hazeldean Road (at the corner of Victor Street),” Stittsvillecentral.ca reported last May. “At that time it was proposed that a one-storey commercial building with a four-storey apartment building in the north corner would be built. The remainder of the lot was to provide parking spaces. This proposal still remains applicable.
Meanwhile, In Kanata South, on Eagleson Road at the northwest corner of Terry Fox Drive, the committee approved zoning to add 393 units – a mix of detached homes and townhouses. Also, in Kanata North, the Committee approved zoning for another 47 two-storey townhouses off Old Second Line Road in the Morgan’s Grant neighbourhood.
