Studioworks Inc., on behalf of property owners Crombie Developments Limited and Beukema & Nelson Independent Consultants Incorporated, is applying to rezone portions of lands at 685 Old Sackville Road to enable the construction of three multi-unit dwellings at 665 Old Sackville Road.
The applicant wishes to subdivide and rezone property between Sackville Drive and Old Sackville Road, north of 685 Old Sackville Road, for the construction of three multi-unit dwellings.
Main features of the concept design are as follows:
- Three multi-unit dwellings on one lot;
- A mix of surface and underground vehicle parking facilities;
- Vehicle access from Old Sackville Road;
- Mandatory 30.5 meter separation distance between any development and the Little Sackville River, which is next to the site;
- Final number of units will be determined at permitting;
- Maximum height of buildings permitted as of right in the requested zone is 15.24 metres (50 feet). Taller buildings would require a development agreement.

The Development Plans shared during the planning application (rezoning) process are an example of what the final development could be. The final architectural design and site plan must comply with the Sackville Drive Land Use By-law.
