Fowler Bauld & Mitchell Ltd., on behalf of the property owner, are asking to change the landscaping design for a previously approved apartment building with ground-floor commercial located at 2032-2050 Robie Street, Halifax.
In 2021, Halifax and West Community Council approved a development agreement to allow a multi-unit dwelling with ground floor commercial on the lands at 2032-2050 Robie Street, Halifax. The development agreement has requirements for landscaping on the site and includes a landscaping plan. The major aspects of the proposal are as follows:
- Provide more equitable access to all doors along Robie Street and add soft landscaping (e.g., grass) along with the hard landscaping (e.g., paver stones) in the front yard;
- Remove the fence and hedge along the western property line to create a shared back yard with the lands on Parker Street;
- Incorporate a range of perennial and shrub planting; and
- A new layout for the rooftop terrace on the third floor.
Section 6.1.1 of the existing Development Agreement identifies changes to the landscaping as a non-substantive amendment.
The Development Plans (provided below) outline the development proposal in detail and include information related to the proposed landscaping.
The application will be considered under the Non-Substantive Amendments to a 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 and Planning Applications.
