The applicant is proposing to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law to permit two 10-storey buildings.

The current proposed amendments include an increase in the building height, reduction to the minimum ground floor height, reduction to the off-street parking ratio, reduction to the angular plane provisions, reduction to the rear yard setback/setback from a side or rear lot line that abuts a residential zone, and the maximum number of loading spaces.

There are 295 units, 964 square metres of commercial floor area, with 233 underground vehicular parking spaces and 316 bicycle parking spaces on the East Site. The East Site ranges from 4-storeys (along Creighton St and Chatham St), to 10-storeys (along Chatham St, Princess St, and Alfred St). There are 169 units, 576 square metres of commercial floor area, with 117 underground vehicular parking spaces and 177 bicycle parking spaces proposed for the West Site. Vehicular access to two levels of underground parking and the loading area is provided off Alfred St. At grade, commercial uses front onto Princess St and the corner of Alfred St. A 98 square metre "pocket park" is proposed off Alfred St. behind the building.
