Public Meeting Jan. 9 for 1157-1171 North Shore Blvd. development application


The City of Burlington has received a development application for a seniors’ living campus at 1157-1171 North Shore Blvd. E. and a public meeting is set for this Wednesday (Jan. 9).

The meeting will be held at the Art Gallery of Burlington’s Shoreline Room, 1333 Lakeshore Rd. at 7 p.m. No decision has been made on this application yet and city staff are looking to get feedback from the public on the development proposal.

The applicants, Spruce Partners Inc. and Amico Properties Inc. (Amica), are looking to put in 17-storey, 12-storey and 11-storey buildings that will transition down to two storeys at the north of the planned area. In total, the development proposes 475 suites with 180 staff on site.

The city planner on the file is Lisa Stern, who can be reached at or 905-335-7600 ext. 7824.

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.
