Important: Developer is seeking an official plan amendment that would allow it to build on the currently undeveloped property
About: “The community of Leitrim in south Ottawa could see more than 500 new homes in the coming years if city councillors accept the advice of municipal staff and open a large swath of land off Bank Street to development.
Ottawa homebuilder Urbandale is seeking an official plan amendment that would allow it to build on the currently undeveloped property, known as the Kellam Lands at 4789 Bank St., south of Findlay Creek Drive and a proposed Claridge subdivision. A concept plan referenced in a city report says Urbandale envisions constructing about 562 homes, including 254 single-detached houses, 254 multiple units and 54 apartments.”
Sept, 2017: “Before any construction could begin, the land needs to be designated part of Ottawa’s “general urban area” in the city’s official plan. It’s currently considered an “urban expansion study area.”
Councillors on the city’s planning committee will consider the request next Tuesday, Sept. 12.”
