From the Office of Councillor Jeff Leiper:
433 & 435 Churchill Ave, 468, 470 & 472 Byron Place Development
Zoning By-Law Amendment Application & Site Plan Control + Open House
You may recall that for a while now, we’ve been in the early stages of discussing a proposed development at Churchill Ave and Byron Place. We held a community meeting for this conceptual development in October, the details of which can be found here. The applicants took the community feedback, made some revisions to their plans, and have now formally submitted a Zoning By-Law Amendment Application and Site Plan Control for this development project.
They are proposing a new six-storey mixed-use building with approximately 76 residential units and two at-grade commercial units facing Churchill Ave. The project fronts Churchill Ave, Byron Place as well as Highcroft Ave. The commercial units are designed for pedestrian access from Churchill. An underground parking garage is proposed to have 59 resident parking spaces, 6 visitor spaces and 45 bicycle parking spaces, and will be accessed via Highcroft. Stepbacks are proposed on the building at the fifth and sixth levels along Churchill, with stepbacks after the fourth storey along Byron and Highcroft. Waste collection is proposed to be internal and collected via Churchill.
The development proposal also includes three “parklette” concepts for a section of Byron Place.
More details on this development, including the three “parkelette” concepts can be found on DevApps:

Site Plan Control
Now that the applications have been formally submitted, we encourage you to send feedback both to our office (via Jeff.Leiper@Ottawa.ca and/or Fiona.Mitchell@Ottawa.ca) as well as to the lead planner on the file (via Andrew.McCreight@Ottawa.ca). The lead planner has the previously-submitted community comments and they will be taken into consideration, but please review the proposal with the details and consider submitting your comments again. If you want to be on the notification list for this development, you’ll have to resubmit your old comments or send revised comments to Andrew (Andrew.McCreight@Ottawa.ca).
Our office is also hosting another public information session for this development:
Tuesday, June 4
Presentation begins at 7:00pm
Churchill Senior’s Centre (Main Hall – gym)
The applicant’s team will be on hand to run through the applications, and the lead planner will be available to field process questions. Jeff will also facilitate a Q + A.
Thank you and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
