Heritage Revitalization Agreement Bylaw No. 8237, 2020 and Heritage Designation Bylaw No. 8238, 2020 (HER00737) for 835 Royal Avenue (HER00739)


An application has been received to subdivide this corner property through a Heritage Revitalization Agreement. The house on the front of the site facing Royal Avenue would become a duplex (with a rental suite in one of the units). The other house currently on the site would be relocated or demolished. In its place, a three unit townhouse would be built on a new lot at the rear of the site, facing Ontario Street. The agreement would permit Zoning Bylaw relaxations for smaller lot size, greater overall floor space ratio (density), smaller front yard and courtyard setbacks for the townhouse, and no on-site vehicle parking for the rental unit. In exchange for these Zoning relaxations, the 1883 house would be restored and legally protected with a Heritage Designation Bylaw.
