Eleven-storey apartment building planned for residential area of Burlington


Published June 30, 2022 at 1:34 pm

A proposal to build an 11-storey apartment building on Guelph Line is under consideration by the City of Burlington.

The building is planned for 1396 Guelph Line, right where Palmer Rd. ends, and would take the place of a long-abandoned, single-storey, brown brick building.

The landowners hope the structure will have 232 apartments, with a three-level underground parking lot that will accommodate 236 parking spaces.

The application for a zoning amendment beats a deadline that would see the land designated as “infrastructure and transportation corridors”. It is currently zoned as medium-density residential.

The site is just south of Upper Middle Rd., within walking distance of MM Robinson High School as well as local shopping and transit.

“The public will be able to submit written comments to staff and/or contact staff if they have questions,” said Mayor Marianne Meed Ward.

“More details on how to do that and updates on the proposed application will be provided at the city website.”
