Application by ZZap Consulting Inc., on behalf of Armco Capital Inc., requesting substantive amendments to the existing development agreement for Lovett Lake to add additional lands and allow for a Phase 3 of Lovett Lake with 93 residential units, resulting in an increase of residential units from 257 to 350 units on the site.
A Development Agreement was approved by Halifax and West Community Council in 2014 (Case no.18078) that allows the construction of up to 257 residential dwellings (consisting of single family homes, semi-detached dwellings, and townhome dwellings), as well as some commercial development, and parkland conveyance, to be built in two (2) phases.
The applicant is proposing to add four (4) properties to the existing Development Agreement site (which is currently made up of five (5) properties), to allow for a Phase 3. They are proposing 93 additional residential units within Phase 3. This results in 350 residential units on the entire site, 257 of which were approved in the original Development Agreement.
Phase 1 of the agreement allows the construction of 159 of the residential units, parkland dedication to take place, and construction of commercial development.
Phase 2 of the agreement allows the remainder of the residential units to be constructed, and the extension of internal roads to connect for access to St. Margarets Bay Road.
The applicant is not proposing to change details of phases 1 and 2. The proposal is to add four properties and create a 3rd phase to construct 93 more residential units, and create an additional (2nd) access to St. Margarets Bay Road.
