861 Clyde Avenue North (old Neilson Dairy)

  • Project Type: Demolition and new construction
  • Application Number:   D02-02-22-0126
  • Status:   Application to modify zoning; brownfield remediation grant approved; Site Plan approved
  • Last updated: May 2024

Details:  Orignally, we were told that projecct would include the old Canadian Tire and old Boston pizza areas, but now it’s just the dairy property. The zoning by-law amendment is for an increase in maximum permitted height from 9 storeys to 40 storeys. The Site Plan is to redevelop the land with 7 residential buildings ranging from 2- and 4-storey townhouse units to towers ranging from 9 to 30 storeys (total of about 1,745 dwelling units), as well as commercial space and a neighbourhood park.  A multi-use trail and landscaped open space will connect Churchill Avenue and Clyde Avenue.

City Council approved an Official Plan Amendment (October 13, 2021), Zoning By-law Amendment (February 9, 2022) as well as a brownfield remediation grant application (April 17, 2024). The Site Plan was approved by the City February 12, 2024.

The whole block, including the Canadian Tire and Boston pizza area, was formerly a part of Kitchissippi Ward, but became a part of River Ward at the time of the October 2022 municipal election.  That is why there was an Open House for this project given by Jeff Lieper, City Councillor of Kitchissippi Ward at that time, on November 30, 2020, which can be viewed on YouTube.

City Councillor Riley Brockington held an Open House on this development on June 28, 2023.
