Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward recently stated that the City currently has over 50 projects in various stages of development.
The mayor confirmed this in a recent interview with inhalton.com‘s Khaled Iwamura, adding that the stages range from applications without approval, construction phases or waiting for a final building permit.
“The vast majority of those are multi-residential which could mean townhouses all the way to high-rises in Burlington,” said Meed Ward.
According to the mayor, the developments are spread throughout every ward in the city.
One of these projects includes the proposed high-rises at the former Holland Park site, which has caused some concerns from Burlington residents.
Additionally, other proposals include a retail and commercial development at 5030-5045 Tico Creek Common, a mixed-use development including a 25-storey tower at 535-551 Brant St., a mixed-use development including eight towers, ranging in height from 11-30 storeys at Oval Court and Fairview Street and more.
“It is very, very, busy in our planning department,” confirmed Meed Ward.
