The City of Ottawa has received a new development application for the southwest corner at 1330 Carling Avenue and 815 Archibald Street, to the east of the Travelodge site. The site is currently occupied by 2nd Chance Auto Sales.
The proposed development is a 24-storey mixed-use building with commercial uses at-grade and 175 residential units above. The building is designed with a five-storey podium and a tower. The roof of the podium will have an outdoor amenity area, supplemented by an internal amenity area.
Resident and visitor parking will be located underground with surface parking spaces provided to serve the proposed commercial/retail uses.
The requested Zoning By-law Amendment will be to permit the building and to reduce the parking requirements from 82 to 48 spaces. The proposed tower is slender and is set back a similar distance from the low-rise homes fronting Thames Street.
