Multi-building industrial park proposed in Milton
Published September 22, 2021 at 3:28 pm
The Town of Milton is currently reviewing an application for a proposed development of a multi-building industrial park.
The subject lands, which are currently vacant, are known as 6712 Fifth Line, on the west side of Fifth Line, South of Derry Road and east of James Snow Parkway. They are approximately 40.5 hectares in size with approximately 640 metres of frontage on Derry Road and 530 metres of frontage on Fifth Line.
The applicant, Broccolini Real Estate Group, is proposing a total of four buildings with approximately 91,500 square metres of warehouse and light industrial spaces. Additionally, the application would also maintain the existing natural heritage system and create two additional blocks for future development.
As a result, the application would require an amendment to the Official Plan in order to permit surface parking spaces within the Street Oriented overlay area between Derry Road and the proposed building. An amendment to the Zoning By-law would also be required to rezone the lands in order to allow the use as well as establish zone standards specific to the development being proposed.
If approved, the proposed plan of subdivision will create blocks for the proposed business park, natural heritage system, stormwater management facility and future development lands.
This application was discussed in one statutory public meeting back in April. Aside from the amendments required, the proposed development generally conforms to the policies of the Town’s Official Plan and the Derry Green Corporate Business Park Secondary Plan Area, according to opinions from staff.
It is currently under technical review by the Town and commenting agencies and is set to be discussed further in a future meeting that has not been scheduled yet.
