Mobility Hub

September 22, 2017 in Aldershot's Vision, Frontpage, Infrastructure, Planned by Heather Mace

About 80 people attended the recent public meeting in Aldershot to discuss future development around the GO Station. (This is long term planning.) The Aldershot “mobility hub” will be the subject of major intensification in the future. The City envisions a significant mixed use neighbourhood with a variety of housing types, retail and employment opportunities. The meeting focused on two theoretical models which received public feedback. Staff are expected to return to Aldershot in a few months with their recommended “preferred” model.

“Breeze” Condo Development

September 22, 2017 in Aldershot's Vision, Frontpage, Meetings, Planned by Heather Mace

A Committee of Council will soon consider the proposal to construct an eight storey building with 72 condominiums at 35 Plains Road E. and Cooke Blvd. The project is known as the “Breeze”. It will be discussed at the Planning & Development Committee meeting on the evening of September 26 at 6:30 pm at City Hall. The proposal was the subject of a public meeting in Aldershot more than a year ago. A staff recommendation will be put forward at that meeting.

Bingo Plaza

September 22, 2017 in Aldershot's Vision, Frontpage, Planned by Heather Mace

The City also has not received an application from National Homes concerning the site at 484 Plains Rd. E. At a public meeting in July, the developer advised residents that he would like to demolish the existing plaza and replace it with 2 eight storey condo buildings (retail on first floor) and townhouses behind. The City will let you know if and when a formal application is received.

Retail Plaza / 484 Plains Road East

July 28, 2017 in Meetings, Planned by Heather Mace

A developer known as National Homes has contacted my office and advised that they have acquired this important property for redevelopment. The property currently houses the Bingo operation, Home Hardware, the Dollar Store, the Compassion Society and other shops. It is believed that National Homes is proposing to eventually demolish all the existing buildings and replace them with a mixed use development, including townhouses at the rear of the property and 2 mid-rise condominium buildings along Plains Road, with retail at grade and one level of underground parking. To be clear, National Homes has not submitted a formal application to the City at this time.

The proposed development of a new gas station, Tim Hortons drive through and variety store at 1134 Plains Road, West (near the RBG) has passed an important hurdle.
