  1. Will this be a condo development, or will it be the same as the last condo they built on Brock – registered as condos, but is presently a rental building. I know that this building was sold and is not owned by the Molinaro Group. Once again 179 units with 185 parking spaces!!!!

    1. Marianne Meed Ward we don’t need more condo’s in burlington we need more affordable apartment buildings. I wouldn’t have an issue with this building if it matched the one that already there beside where they are wanting to put this. I also have an issue with where they want to put the in/out to this building on the busiest street connecting maple and brant street during 5-8 is so busy with people coming home on a weekday. Also for how far they are going for the underground they will hit water, I dont want to be looking at a mess like there is across from the performing art’s centre.

  2. Will this development be a rental building or a condominium? The other building the Molinaro’s built on Brock was registered as condos but was a rental building. Wondering if this is what they are planning on doing again.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
