Burlington developer wants to build eight high-rise towers in city’s east end

A developer wants to rezone a piece of land near Sherwood Forest Park that would allow them to build a complex of high-rise towers.

The eight buildings, which would range in height from 11 to 30 storeys, would provide a mix of uses including commercial, retail and about 2,000 residential units.

The proposal is for Oval Ct., which runs north off Fairview St., east of Appleby Line, where Fairview ends.

The land currently houses a few low-rise commercial and light-industrial buildings. It is zoned for employment-use only as of the City of Burlington’s 1997 Official Plan.

Branthaven Development Corporation’s rezoning request would allow for taller buildings than the current three-storey maximum, as well as apartments.

The proposals is currently in the public consultation period and a virtual community meeting is being held Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m.

For more information about the rezoning for this project, including supporting studies that have been submitted by the applicant, vist the city website.


The city contact for residents seeking more information about this matter, including information about appeal rights, is senior planner Gordon Dickson. He can be reached at 905-335-7600, ext. 7809, or [email protected].
