Two large condo towers are set to put a new face in midtown Oakville.

In a close 8-5 vote at a recent meeting of the Town of Oakville’s Planning and Development Council, developer FCHT Holdings Corporation was given the go-ahead for zoning changes to permit construction of the two large buildings at the northeast corner of Trafalgar Rd. and Cornwall Rd.


Building heights are restricted to four to 10 storeys in the area of the Cornwall District of Midtown. Midtown, which has been designated as a growth area, is expected to accommodate 20,000 residents and jobs by 2031.

The 19-storey mixed-use building and 14-storey mixed-use building development will replace a Beertown restaurant and Indigospirit that are currently occupying the development land.

In the proposal, the 19-storey tower will include 254 square metres of commercial space and 177 residential units. The 14-storey tower will have 706 square metres of commercial space with 140 residential units.

Between 238 and 317 underground parking spaces are expected along with 109 underground spaces for bicycles.

Access into the towers will be at the existing Cornwall Rd. and Reynolds St. intersection. Left turns, which are currently not permitted, will be allowed.

The proposal will see the current exit right onto Trafalgar Rd. eliminated.

The vote was not without dispute as both residents and councillors voiced their concerns over what a large addition of residential units would bring to what they say is an already a congested area.
