Re-zoning: mid-rise apartment building at 1039-1047 Dundas

What is being proposed?

London Affordable Housing Foundation is proposing the development of a 5-story, mid-rise apartment building on the currently vacant land at 1039, 1041, 1045, 1047 Dundas St. The proposed lands are in a 0.49ac parcel of land located on the south side of Dundas St., east of Egerton St. and are currently zoned as Business District Commercial (BDC).

The proposed development would contain a total of 41 residential units, consisting of 32 one bedroom units and 9 barrier-free one bedroom units. There would be 22 parking spots at grade parking spots in the rear and 32 indoor bicycle parking spots.

Next Steps

A neighbourhood open house hosted by the applicant's planning consultants, Zelinka Priamo Ltd, will be held at the Canadian Corps Association, Unit 12, 1051 Dundas St. on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 from 6-8pm. Information regarding the proposed plan will be provided. This is a good opportunity to learn more about the proposed development, ask questions and outline any concerns about or support for the proposed development. 

There will also be a public participation meeting at planning and environment committee, the date of which is not yet known.

    Fantastic. Community-building for all.

    Great idea. We need more development. Affordable housing is in short supply.

    While I believe there is also a need for affordable 2 and 3 bedroom units as well, I think this is a great opportunity for in-fill and with it on the approved BRT route, it would give people in low income positions easy access to jobs along the BRT routes.

    A mid-rise apartment buiding has been proposed for 1039-1047 Dundas St. What do you think? #ldnont http://www.helmer.ca/?recruiter_id=74224

    It’s a good proposal. My only concern is that an increase in traffic may worsen the already challenging traffic congestion at Quebec and Egerton intersections.
