Developer to modify project for Elgin/Blathwayte
based on resident feedback
More than 70 residents attended a neighbourhood meeting Thurs. Nov. 13 to hear about the proposal by Landform Development Group for a 5-storey condominium at the corner of Elgin & Blathwayte. The owner has purchased the Wigsville building at 1437 Elgin St., along with two properties to the north at 452 & 454 Locust St. The development proposal does not include Melodia Restaurant.
No planning applications have been submitted to the City of Burlington as yet. The current zoning allows 4-storeys on this site so a rezoning application would be required for the proposed 5-storeys.
Following resident input at the meeting, the developer has said they will bring a revised proposal to the city that conforms to current Official Plan and zoning regulations.
