The City of Kingston planning committee will meet to discuss the matters listed below at 6:30 p.m.
55 Ontario St. – IBI Group – D35-003-2017
Applications for Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw amendments propose the adaptive re-use of the Dry Dock and Pump House Complex located at 55 Ontario St. and construction of a 20-storey residential building with 292 dwelling units at 5 Lower Union St. The applications propose an increase in existing height and density provisions for the subject properties. Through this public meeting process, staff is also seeking community input on potential community benefits related to the proposed development that might be requested from the applicant.
2917 Princess St. – Luis Martin – D35-003-2016
Applications for Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw amendments to change the land-use designation of a portion of the site from ‘Residential' to ‘Arterial Commercial'. The applicant also requests to change the existing zoning to a Special Highway Commercial ‘C3-X' Zone to permit a commercial use consisting of the on-site sale of pre-fabricated sheds and landscaping supplies. The requested amendments also include permitting an accessory residential unit within an existing dwelling. Zoning relief from provisions related to parking and open storage is also proposed.
1010-1028 Portsmouth Ave. – Jim Baldwin – D14-029-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit three dwelling units in each of the existing two-storey structures on the subject properties. The properties each contain two dwelling units on the first and second floors and a third non-conforming unit in the basement. Relief is required from the Zoning Bylaw to permit dwelling units in the cellar level, and three total dwelling units on each property. The applicant also requests an exemption from the play-space requirement (6.9 square metres) for each property. At 1028 Portsmouth Ave., relief is requested to permit three parking spaces behind the front wall of the main building (the Zoning Bylaw requires parking to be behind a point mid-way between the front and rear walls).
235 Montreal St. – Bernard Fitzgerald – D14-025-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to change the permitted use of a unit in an existing four-unit commercial building from retail to medical-office. The property is now zoned site specific ‘A.144' in Zoning Bylaw Number 8499 which allows for a neighbourhood-stores use (retail and restaurant use), but does not permit a medical office use. The existing site-specific zone is required to be amended to include medical-office as a permitted use. The applicant also seeks relief from parking requirements.
Items for discussion/recommendation:
672 Division St. – Stephen Kraus– D14-022-2017
Application for Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit a third dwelling unit in the cellar of the existing two-unit dwelling. The third unit exceeds the maximum permitted number of dwelling units, which is limited to two. The new dwelling unit would be located in a cellar which is now prohibited. No change to the exterior of the building is proposed. The applicant proposes three parking spaces on-site to be located in the backyard. This requires an amendment to increase the area in a backyard that may be used for parking.
