There is currently a 130-unit multiple unit residential building located on the property which was constructed in the late 1970s. The proposal is to construct a new multi-unit residential building, in addition to the existing multiple-unit residential building, on the excess land. The building will contain approximately 148 units within a fifteen-storey building (comprised of a two-storey podium and a thirteen-storey high-rise component).
The property is designated High Order Residential and is zoned High Order Residential 2 (HR-2) under the Regional Centre Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy (Centre Plan). This application was submitted prior to the adoption of the Centre Plan (November 2019) and therefore, as per Policy 10.25 of that plan, is being considered under the policies in effect at adoption, which was Policy IP-5 of the Dartmouth Municipal Planning Strategy.
The application will be considered under the Development Agreement process
Currently this application is at the review team stage of the process where the request is reviewed by internal municipal staff from Development Engineering (including Traffic Services), Building Standards, Civic Addressing, Development Officer (By-laws), Fire Protection Services and Parkland Planning as well as externally by Halifax Water.
A public open house was held on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Alderney Gate Public Library - Helen Creighton Room, 60 Alderney Drive, Dartmouth, NS. View the staff presentation and the meeting summary.
