Request

Upland Planning & Design has applied on behalf of Dartmouth Secure Self Storage Limited for a non-substantive amendment to an existing development agreement at 19 Hamlet Lane, Dartmouth, to allow for an additional 2 years to complete construction of a previously approved mixed-use development.  

Proposal

A development agreement (DA) and subsequent amendments were approved by Community Council starting in 2000, as follows:

  • The original agreement by Pinnacle Homes Limited (Case 00163) was approved on September 14, 2000 to allow for a mixed-use development of property at Civic 506 Portland Street, Dartmouth, referred to as ‘Evergreen Village’, to include a mix of residential, commercial, community facilities and institutional uses;
  • Amendments to the original DA were approved on July 10, 2003 to allow changes to the type, location and size of commercial development (Case 00473);
  • Amendments to the original DA were approved on July 2, 2009 to permit temporary signs (Case 01257); and
  • Amendments to the original DA were approved on June 2, 2015 to allow 263 residential dwelling units and associated amenity space in 3 buildings in addition to commercial and institutional uses (Case 18255).

The proposal is for additional time to complete development of the site at 19 Hamlet Lane. Most of the buildings in the overall development have been constructed. Municipal construction permits have recently been issued for a 90-unit residential building on the abutting site at Civic 22 Hamlet Lane. The subject site at Civic 19 contains two self-storage buildings and the remainder of the parcel to the south is vacant. In 2015, this site was approved for a residential apartment building containing 148 units. The applicant wishes to extend the completion date by two years to provide enough time to complete the 148-unit building (by March 17, 2024). The only remaining undeveloped site within the area covered by the DA is a HRM-owned institutional site on the southwest side of Green Village Lane, which was acquired as a possible fire station site.

Process

The application will be considered under the Non-Substantive Amendment to a Development Agreement process.
