Clayton Developments Limited and Crombie REIT are requesting to enter into a development agreement to allow a mixed-use community on the former Penhorn Mall Lands on Portland Street, Dartmouth.
The properties are designated Future Growth Node (FGN) and zoned Comprehensive Development District (CDD) under the new Regional Centre Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy (SMPS) and Land Use By-law (LUB), also known as the Centre Plan.
Future growth nodes are lands where there is potential to accommodate significant growth due to the site’s size, location, and proximity to services. These parcels of land are intended to be comprehensively planned to ensure they meet the objectives of the Centre Plan.
This proposal is being considered under enabling Policies 3.32 and 3.35 of the Regional Centre SMPS.
The major aspects of the proposal include:
- 8 new development blocks containing 11 buildings, ranging from 3 to 12 storeys
- Approximately 905 residential units and 45 townhouse units
- An active transportation trail next to the Circumferential Highway
- A multi-use greenway through the site connecting Penhorn Lake and Brownlow Park
- New streets and municipal services
- Surface parking lots for users of Brownlow Park and Penhorn Lake
The development agreement will identify the location of the roads, parks, and new lots and provide provisions for the subdivision of the land. The agreement will also identify zones for each of the new lots, building heights, specific built form and land use requirements and the phasing for the development.
The Development Plans (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail.
The application will be considered under the Development Agreement process.
The application has been submitted and is undergoing initial review by municipal staff and may change as a result of staff comments. A sign is posted by the applicant on the subject site advertising the Planning Application.
