Re: Pre-application Consultation Virtual Meeting for the Waterfront Hotel Burlington
Burlington 2020 Lakeshore Inc. (the “Owner”) is hosting a virtual pre-application community meeting to discuss a proposal to demolish the existing Waterfront Hotel Burlington building and replace it with a sleek and modern mixed-use development that will accommodate retail and service commercial uses at-grade that will frame the public realm, offices, a banquet facility and restaurants, hotel, and residential apartments. In total, the proposed redevelopment will provide 557 apartments, a 130-room hotel, as well as commercial, office and other accessory uses all within two towers (35- and 30-storeys) inclusive of a 5-storey podium.
No application has been received and no decision has been made by the City.
Public comments may be directed to the applicant at this time. Once a complete application has been submitted the public will be notified, and comments will be received by city staff. This Consultation meeting is the first step in a comprehensive review of the draft proposal. The purpose of the consultation meeting is for the Owner to address key questions and obtain community feedback prior to the submission of any development applications.
During the meeting, the Owner will provide an overview of the proposal and City Staff will provide an overview of the development application review process and how the public can be involved. There will also be a question and answer component about the various aspects of the proposal and the planning process. Mayor Marianne Meed Ward and Ward 2 Councillor Lisa Kearns will be in attendance to listen to the discussion.
- Welcome and Introductions;
- Introductory comments by Mayor Marianne Meed Ward and Ward 2 Councillor Lisa Kearns;
- City Planning Staff Presentation on the Planning Process (more information on the planning process can be found at www.burlington.ca/planningprocess);
- Review of Waterfront Hotel Study;
- Owner Presentation on the Development Proposal;
- Comments and Questions & Answers with the public.
After the event, additional comments, questions, and feedback for the Owner can be directed to the planning consultant, Bousfields Inc., at email@example.com or 905-549-3005, ext. 259.
Please Note: this development pre-application process is separate from and not related to the City’s Waterfront Hotel Study (www.burlington.ca/waterfronthotelstudy), which has established key policy directions for development on this site and is planned to continue later this year.
