Public Meeting: 1050 Somerset West

February 21, 2012

An application has been received for a rezoning at 1050 Somerset Street West (the former New 168 Market), at Breezehill Avenue North for a mixed-use building of up to 28-storeys by Claridge Homes.

Details of the application will be posted here.

NB: At the time this post was published they were not yet available. They should appear there by the end of the week.

Section 37 Benefits

The nature of the proposed rezoning will make the project eligible for the requirement to provide community benefits in kind or in cash. Possible uses of this provision include public art, new green space or public space, childcare facilities, or affordable housing. The benefit must be tangible, like a building, rather than on-going, like operating funds for a program.

To submit your suggestions, please email Andrew Hickey, at andrew.hickey@ottawa.ca or call 613-580-2485.
