Request

To amend the Generalized Future Land Use Map and the Land Use Bylaw Map and to enter into a development agreement with the Municipality.

Proposal

WM Fares Architects have submitted an updated site plan and are now applying to change the land use designation and zone of PID 45329901, PID 45379864, and PID 45410503, Enfield, to the Walkable Comprehensive Development District (WCDD) and are also applying to enter into a development agreement with the Municipality of East Hants. A total of 18 townhouses and three multiplexes (180 dwelling units), with one multiplex having commercial space on the ground floor, are proposed for the subject lands. A development agreement enables flexibility for the developer and provides certainty to the community as to what may be developed.

Details

The subject properties are located at the corner of White Road and Highway 2 and between Lacy Anne Avenue and Highway 2 in Enfield. The total area of the subject properties is approximately 2.69 hectares.

Adjacent property zones include Mixed Use Centre (MC), Two Dwelling Unit Residential (R2), Established Residential Neighbourhood (R1), Multiple Unit Residential (R3), and Open Space (OS). Adjacent property uses include the Ribahi Centre, Corridor Auto Sales, and Avery’s Farm Market across Highway 2 from the subject property; Tot’s Academy adjacent to the subject site; Concorde Way Park (municipally owned playground); and apartment buildings, townhouses and single unit dwellings.

The concept plan shows the extension of Lacy Anne Avenue with three (3) blocks of four (4) townhouse and one semi-detached dwelling with frontage on the proposed street extension. An additional block of four (4) townhouses are proposed to front on White Road. Two (2) multiplexes, with six (6) stories are proposed to front on Highway 2, with the building at the corner of Highway 2 and White Road proposed to have commercial space on the ground floor. Another four (4) story multiplex is proposed to the north of the multiplexes facing Highway 2, for a total of 180 apartment units for the whole site. A driveway from Lacy Anne Avenue to White Road will allow for access to the multiplexes, no direct access from Highway 2 is proposed. An approximate 460 m2 common outdoor amenity space is proposed to be centrally available for residents living in the multiplexes, in addition each multiplex will be required to have indoor amenity space as well.
