Developers and Oakville residents are still arguing how high a proposed new residential condominium in Bronte will go.

The proposed zoning by-law amendment application for the 245-unit development, which is to be built on 0.38 hectares of land at the southwest corner of Lakeshore Road. West and East St., has been appealed to the Ontario Lands Tribunal, which has not yet set a hearing date.

The initial application proposes a 15-storey mixed-use building containing 245 residential rental units and 446 square meters of commercial space at ground level. In addition, there would be 273 parking spaces on 3.5 levels of underground parking.

But local residents are encouraged to consider two options as a means of a settlement offer by the developer.

Bids are based on either a 13-story building or a 10-story building with different designs. Each option includes up to 244 units, commercial spaces on the ground floor and 268 parking spaces (one parking space per residential unit plus 24 parking spaces for retail and visitor parking).

Nevertheless, the promoter can return to the initial proposal if the court rules in his favour.

Oakville residents will be able to speak on the proposal during a videoconference hosted by the city’s planning and development board on May 2 at 6:30 p.m.
