1200 University Avenue West

Applicant: AIPL Canada Holdings Inc.
Agent:  Dillon Consulting
File No: Z-009/20 [ZNG/6070] 

The applicant is requesting an amendment to Zoning By-law 8600 to facilitate the redevelopment and adaptive reuse of a former industrial and commercial property known historically as the SW&A Street Railway storage and maintenance barns.  The application requests a change from Commercial District 2.2 (CD2.2) and to a site-specific CD2.2 zoning district that would permit the development of a new five-storey multiple dwelling with 123 dwelling units and reuse of the existing buildings for commercial uses. 

The requested site-specific zoning district would permit:

  • The construction of a multiple dwelling building without ground floor commercial uses;
  • An increase in maximum building height from 14 metres to 18 metres;
  • A decrease in required amenity area from 12 square metres to 7.5 square metres per dwelling unit;
  • A decrease in the minimum required gross floor area of 53 dwelling units from 40 square metres to 31 square metres; and
  • A decrease the minimum required parking spaces from 1.25 spaces per dwelling unit to 0.9 spaces per unit, which would result in a total of 110 parking spaces dedicated for residential use instead of 153. 

The subject property is located on the north side of University Avenue West between Cameron Avenue and Elm Avenue.  The area subject to the rezoning application is 0.94 hectares and is partially occupied by two vacant buildings, 855 square metres and 1,292 square metres in size. The property is designated "Mixed Use" on Schedule D: Land Use within the City of Windsor Official Plan and is recognized as a cultural heritage resource listed on the Municipal Heritage Register. The property is also the subject of an application for consent (File no. B-003/20) and Site Plan Approval (File no. SPC-036/19) under the Planning Act.
