Hamilton politicians have approved a rezoning application that will allow Sonoma Homes Inc. to construct a three-storey mixed use building on Garner Road.
The proposal includes 36 residential units on the second and third floors, while offices or a medical clinic will take over the ground floor of the building at 1117 Garner, on the site of a former automotive business.
“(The property) has been decommissioned,” said Glenn Wellings, of Wellings Planning Consultants, who was representing the company. “There has been work done on the property.”
The land is currently zoned agricultural and utility, and will be re-designated medium density. The proposed structure will have about 1,195 square metres of office space on 0.44 hectares of land. In addition, there will be 96 parking spots, with 42 located underground.
Councillors also agreed to create an internal condominium road as part of a draft plan of subdivision at 421 Kitty Murray Lane. The proposal will allow for a private road, for waste collection, a visitor parking area and open space for 28 condominium units. The development by Springbrook West Development Inc. won’t be for student residents, even though the project is near Redeemer University. It is located at the southeast corner of Kitty Murray Lane and the entrance to Redeemer University.
