The purpose of these applications is to support the redevelopment of the lands with a 28 storey apartment building, including mechanical penthouse, with retail/commercial uses at grade, 150 residential units above, and 150 parking spaces in five levels of underground parking.

The property is currently designated “Downtown Mixed Use Centre – Old Lakeshore Road Precinct” within the City’s Official Plan. The applicant is proposing to amend the Official Plan to allow an increase in height and to clarify that a road widening along Lakeshore Road is not required on the subject lands.

    1. Hi Anne, this is John Bkila, the Mayor’s Media and Digital Communications Specialist. I believe all that information is sent when you register digitally/online or email the Clerks Department. I recommend emailing clerks@burlington.ca, as they will likely know for sure. Thank you for your question.

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.
