Last year Queen’s University purchased property, previously a Providence Care facility, located at 355 King Street West. This site was acquired with the intention of relocating academic and administrative units there over the long term. A rezoning of the property is required to permit these uses on site and will be subject to a public planning act process for those applications, which will include a Public Meeting at a future date of the Planning Committee. The City will follow its processes related to providing Notice of the Public Meeting in accordance with the Planning Act.
The instructions for accessing the DASH file are:

In search by address field, search for 355 King Street West, or in the search by record information field, search for file number D14-014-2018
The Public Meeting will be held on June 7, 2018, 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
In the meantime I wanted to provide some information to the broader community to inform you that on Tuesday May 22, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., Queen’s will be hosting an Open House just inside the north entrance of the previous Providence Care facility located at 355 King Street West. At this Open House Queen’s staff will be on hand to provide information on the rezoning application including time lines, proposed uses for the Sister’s Residence wing and other information on the site.
Queen’s provided a written notice to neighbouring properties within proximity to the site but the Open House is open to anyone in the community that wishes to attend.
