Absolutely, it should.

We have our own section now. I think even some notable reclads, like the old Fortis Building, will have their own thread.

Rezoning for Mount Pearl Apartments

Quote:
A notice of motion to re-zone land in order to accommodate an apartment building was made during last evening's Mount Pearl city council meeting. Councillor Andrew Ledwell made the motion that would see a vote taken on whether or not to re-zone land on Municipal Avenue, Delaney Avenue and Orchard Avenue from medium density to apartment. The only details of the prospective building is that it would be a multi-storey apartment complex.

It's Mount Pearl - probably no more than 4 stories. But let's keep our finger's crossed!

this land was the subject of an Affordable Housing tender by the City about 2 years ago. The tender was awarded for construction of upwards of 20 units but construction never started. I don't know if it was to be 20 duplexes/rows or a building, but construction was to be subsidized by NLHC.

This could be the signal that construction will start, or it could be something entirely new.

more on it's way in the mount pearl area/ southlands area:


New Housing Project in St. John's
Quote:
A public meeting will be held tonight regarding a proposal for the future of land near Ruby Line. The property, which is nearly 4 hectares in size, would have frontage on both Ruby Line and Southlands Boulevard. Reardon Construction and Development wants the city to rezone the land in order for them to build 55 townhouses and a 4-storey condominium. Both projects are intended for seniors.

The meeting will take place at 7:00 this evening at City Hall in St. John's.
http://www.vocm.com/newsarticle.asp?mn=2&id=31715

too bad it's not higher density however I'm very very very pleased that they are townhouses and an apartment building instead of detached single family houses and seeing how this is on the edge of the city I'm more ok with it being this instead of higher buildings

more on what's happening in Mount Pearl

Proposed Seniors Development a Hit


Quote:
If last night's public meeting was an indication, it seems as if a proposed seniors development will be given given the go-ahead. Reardon Construction and Development wants to rezone a 4-hectare piece of land adjacent to the intersection of Ruby Line and Southland's Boulevard. The development would include 55 townhouses and a 4-storey 48-unit condominium, both catering to seniors. No residents turned up at last night's meeting to protest the development

so 103 units in a four hectare lot.... approx. 10.4 units per acre. Not great, but not terrible.

Southlands Community Centre Tenders Called

Quote:
Tenders have been called for a long-awaited community centre in Southlands. Residents of the St. John's subdivision had been calling for their own recreational facilities for years. Currently, residents must avail of facilities in nearby Mount Pearl. Plans for the new rec centre were unveiled last fall. Funding for the facility will be cost-shared between the city and the province.

In reference to Mt.Pearl, people generally have a 4 storey psychological limit. There is a case of that going on in Vancouver's Dunbar area where the council won't approve a 6 storey seniors building, but would approve a 4 storey building in a rather exclusive area. Resident concerns is the primary cause.

The Westfield condos on Blackmarsh and Captain Whelan have moved onto phase 2. I took a look through the site plan for this development. It's a fairly dense little infill project. The total site appears to be about 17 acres and this development looks like it has 51 4-unit condos, with a plan for more development in the future.

Hopefully we will hear more about this soon

Rezoning Expected for Glencrest Development

Quote:
The area of land on which the $5 billion Glencrest development will sit is expected to be rezoned during tomorrow's weekly St. John's city council meeting. Glencrest, one of former Premier Danny Williams' latest projects, will be made up of 62 per cent residential properties - spanning over 1000 acres, 17 percent will be used as industrial space, with the remaining land used for commercial properties and open space.

The city's planning and housing committee met with representatives from KMK Capital Inc. earlier this month to discuss plans for the land, which will be served by a network of arterial, collector and local roads running from Ruth Avenue Extension, the future extension of Southlands Boulevard, and the Trans-Canada Highway. The committee is recommending that the city not conduct a public hearing as there are no residents in the immediate area, and that a meeting be arranged with neighbouring Mount Pearl to keep them up-to-date with the project.

big day for the council meeting

Industrial Commercial Subdivision Proposed

Quote:
Kenmount Road may be home to a new industrial commercial subdivision. The property owner has applied to rezone land on the north side of Kenmount Road, just east of Metro Self Storage. The department of planning is recommending that the proposed project be advertised for public review, then a vote would be taken on whether or not to allow the rezoning. If phase one of the project is approved, Berjon Holdings will apply to expand the development to Elizabeth Park.

The application will go before council for review tomorrow evening.

Why are they using such weird terminology? What is it they're proposing? An industrial park?

Then they should call it a Business Park or Office Campus, I suppose.

And make it look nice.

"Industrial and commercial subdivision" sounds as suburban as what they probably intend to propose.

KMK Capital sure are busy these days. Among other things, they're also the developer behind Tiffany Condos.

After having the footings laid what seems like ages ago, they are finally getting some steel up on the replacement for St. Teresa's School on Mundy Pond Road.

Council Approves Land Rezoning

Quote:
The city of St. John's is moving on up - or out. City council approved to rezone a number of areas in the capital city to accommodate a new development waiting in the wings. Glencrest, a $5 billion, 24-acre development for Southlands, was one of the projects that was given the green light. The property that was approved to be rezoned only accounts for 10 per cent of the development, and is a mix of residential and industrial space. Land on Kenmount Road was approved to be rezoned to allow for 24 single-detached houses on the west side of Tigress Street.

The two projects, according to Mayor Dennis O'Keefe, will transform the city and province. O'Keefe says over the next 15-20 years, there will be billions in economic development.


He says the developments are possibility one of the greatest economic transformers the city will see. O'Keefe says Glencrest will bring positive economic energy to the city for years to come.
http://www.vocm.com/newsarticle.asp?mn=2&ID=32215


not so happy about the Kenmount road one though, gotta say

by "these two projects" I know he doesn't mean single detached houses .. he's talking about kenmount hill and Glencrest
