SAFE HARBOUR DEVELOPMENTS INC.
RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY PLANNING
2009 - PRESENT
This vacant property is located in the heart of a residential area in the Village of Lakefield, Ontario. MHBC coordinated the submission of applications for Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan Approval, Draft Plan of Condominium and Part Lot Control. The proposal is to develop the property for 24 medium density residential townhouses and a seniors residence development with 92 retirement suites.
The proposed development provides for a mix of housing types and an increase in density in a predominantly low density residential area. The seniors retirement residence uses a step back design to establish a smooth transition in building height to provide compatibility with the adjacent low density residential uses. Natural vegetation plantings and buffers also provide screening from the adjacent residential uses to the east and south.
