50 Speers Development Proposal and Statutory Public Meeting January 23, 2023
An application has been submitted to replace an existing 7 storey rental apartment building with a new purpose-built rental apartment building consisting of a 7 storey podium with a 20 storey tower element (total 27 storey + 1-2 story mechanical, 314 new rental units). The proposal will provide a variety of units from townhouse to 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms.
After reviewing the proposal the WRRA Board feels that 27+ stories is too high and would create a precedent for building heights in the area. We are also concerned with the left turns from the proposed building as this is already an issue on Speers.
There is a statutory public meeting coming Monday January 23rd that our President Nicole LeBlanc will be a delegate at to make sure the neighbourhood voices are heard with respect to the proposed development.
If there is any additional feedback that you would like to share, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
