New housing units are planned with a couple of requests of council.
They both received approval at a special committee meeting on Monday night.
Rick Miller of Miller and Urso Surveying Inc says one proposal involves the first building in a three-phase development on the former Kenroc/Uniroc site on Memorial Drive.
“This application is for a draft plan of a condominium. There will be 63 condominium units in this eight-storey building,” he says. “The condominium process is an ownership type of process.”
Miller says once approved it’ll allow for the units to be marketed and pre-sold where potential buyers can view the rules and regulations.
The other proposal given committee approval is a rezoning request on Dudley Avenue.
Miller says it involves the former ‘Les Compagnons’ community centre and event hall.
“That service club (Les Compagnons des francs loisirs) has sold the building to my client who wishes to turn it into an 11-unit apartment building. It’s a combination of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, mostly one-bedroom,” Miller says.
Construction is hoped to begin this year.
There were some concerns from the public about parking, however, Miller says the proposal meets the requirements, with one spot for each unit and six extra parking spaces.
Full council still has to approve both requests.
