Rezoning Application for 1400 Carling Ave

January 10th, 2017 Comments off

1400-carlingThe City of Ottawa has received a Zoning Amendment application for the 1400 Carling site, known as Embassy West Senior Living. Since 2007 the applicant has had a permit to build two 10 storey (30m) towers, one on each side of the existing building, and is now planning for an increased height to 31.1m for the west tower and 38.5m, plus an additional ‘recreational storey’, for the east tower, resulting in a total of 13 storeys.

Of concern is the added building height and potential shadowing in the afternoon.

Deadline for comments to the City is January 19th.

For more information, or if you would like to comment on the above, please email me at development@carlingtoncommunity.org, or join us for our upcoming general meeting at 7pm on January 18th at the Alexander Community Centre.
