Regional Council has directed staff to review the zoning on Westerwald Street. This is in response to a request by WM Fares Group to rezone lands at 3325, 3331 and 3343 Westerwald Street.
This process will review the zoning on Westerwald Street. It will consider allowing a mix of building types, like townhouses and multi-unit residential buildings. The study area will also include two properties on Melrose Street.
A six-storey residential building is proposed in the study area, at 3325, 3331 and 3343 Westerwald Street. This building is not permitted under existing land use policy or zoning, so the applicant, WM Fares Group, is asking to rezone the property.
The major aspects of this proposal are as follows:
• 90 dwelling units;
• A 3-storey section facing Westerwald Street;
• A 6-storey section facing Joseph Howe Drive;
• A main entrance facing Westerwald Street;
• Ground floor units with entrances opening onto the sidewalk;
• A driveway off Westerwald Street; and
• Underground parking.
The application will be considered under the process to amend a Municipal Planning Strategy.
On December 15th, 2020, Regional Council directed staff to begin this planning process. Staff’s report to the Council is here. The next step is holding a public meeting.
