Proposal Details
The subject property is located at the northern edge of the Glebe neighbourhood between Bank Street to the east and Lyon Street to the west.

Generally, the site is dominated by surface parking to support the existing 2.5-storey medical office building at 30 Chamberlain Avenue and two-storey office building at 48 Chamberlain Avenue, which are both proposed to be demolished.

The proposed development is a 16-storey mixed-use building with ground-floor commercial space and 150 residential units, including a mix of studio, one and two-bedroom units. Vehicular access for the development is provided from Chamberlain Avenue on the western portion of the subject property. Two underground parking levels provide 100 vehicle and 112 bicycle parking spaces. Ten at-grade vehicle parking spaces are located along the western property line for visitor, delivery, and short-term parking requirements.

The subject lands are zoned General Mixed-Use, Subzone 4, Maximum Floor Space Index of 3.0 (GM4 F(3.0)) with the easternmost portion of the site also being subject to Urban Exception 469. The purpose of the General Mixed-Use Zone is to allow residential, commercial and institutional uses, or mixed-use development and permit uses that are often large and draw from broader areas than the surrounding community. To facilitate the proposed development, the Zoning By-law Amendment proposes to maintain the parent GM4 zone with the following site-specific exceptions:

1. Extend across the whole site the permission for a Medical Facility Use under Urban Exception 469.
2. Remove the Maximum Floor Space Index and regulate the density through maximum building height and massing.
3. Increase to the Permitted Maximum Building Height from 14 m to 51 m.
4. Rear Yard Setback of 7.5 m for the tower, whereas the High-Rise Zoning provisions require a minimum of 10 m.
5. East Side Yard Setback of 1.5 m for the tower, whereas the High-Rise Zoning provisions require a minimum of 10 m.
6. Relief from the Landscaping requirements for a parking lot.
7. Reduce the Driveway and Drive Aisle width leading to a parking lot from 6.7 m to 6.0 m.
8. Permit Stacked Bicycle Parking, whereas the Zoning By-law requires that spaces be horizontal or vertical.
