Published November 15, 2021 at 10:41 am

An application has been proposed to facilitate a potential development in the Town of Milton and council is set to discuss it at tonight’s (Nov. 15) meeting.

The reason for the proposed application is to facilitate the development of the Secondary Mixed Use Node with commercial and residential development at the southwest corner of Bronte St. and Louis St. Laurent Ave.

The applicant, Glenn Schnarr & Associates Inc., is proposing a development that would consist of approximately 16,550 square metres of retail/commercial service space, 1,047 residential dwelling units including 188 townhouse units, 399 retirement residential units in two 15-storey apartment buildings and an additional 460 apartment units in two 11- storey apartment buildings and a 15-storey apartment building.

The subject lands are located on the southwest corner of Bronte St. and Louis St. Laurent Ave., east of the Canadian National Railway tracks.

The subject lands, which are currently vacant, are approximately 36.5 hectares in size with approximately 200 metres of frontage on Bronte St. and 500 metres of frontage on Louis St. Laurent Ave.

If approved, the plan of subdivision would create blocks for the proposed commercial development, the proposed residential development, a 16.19-hectare district park, blocks for a trail, an active transportation link, natural heritage system and associated buffers, a stormwater management facility and road widenings.

The application is also seeking to amend the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan of the Town’s Official Plan in order to allow an increase in the maximum gross floor area for commercial uses.

Town council is set to discuss this application at tonight’s meeting which begins at 7:00 p.m.
