Halton Hills council is set to discuss the long-awaited condominium proposed at the former McGibbon Hotel site at an upcoming meeting.

The project for the proposed condominiums, which would be located at 69-79 Main Street South and 94-98 Mill Street in downtown Georgetown, was taken over by Amico last year.

At a council meeting later today (Oct. 25), staff will be bringing forward a report containing recommendations for supporting the proposed changes to the development application.

Some key considerations in the report include increasing the number of condominium units from 125 to 169, making alterations to the building’s mass and terraced design and reducing the required number of parking spaces.

The application also still contains many of the original features that were previously agreed to between the Town of Halton Hills and the former developer.

“This is a high profile development that has garnered a lot of discussion, so I am pleased that discussion on this item will be held until next month in order to provide more time for the public to consider the report,” said Mayor Rick Bonnette.

“I will say though, that I’m pleased that the developer’s proposal has respected many of the elements that we (the Town) considered important including preservation of the heritage brick façade.”

Council will be deferring a discussion on the report until Nov. 15 to provide more opportunities for the public to comment.

Residents who wish to submit comments may do so by emailing [email protected] in advance of the meeting or registering as a delegate by completing an application form here.
