The zoning is in place, however the building is for sale.
The Planning Services department will be presenting a recommendation report with respect to this development proposal at this meeting.
A Zoning By-law Amendment application has been submitted to amend the maximum height provision of four storeys to a maximum of twelve storeys, which is in keeping with the intent of the Urban Core land use designation within the Livable Oakville Plan. The effect of the amendment would permit a twelve storey, mixed use building on the site, bringing the zoning for the lands into conformity with the Livable Oakville Plan. The subject land is south of Randall Street, east of Navy Street, north of Church Street.

On Thursday October 8th, a Public Consultation Meeting was held on ZOOM for a new 12-storey mixed-use residential/commercial building on the corners of Navy and Randall and Navy and Church Streets.
TCRA supports the proposal in principle, expecting it to add desirable resident population, office workers and retail space downtown. However, we have concerns with the shadows which the proposed building will cast, traffic flow and congestion, parking, and reduction in sidewalk width. The proposed building will set a precedent for other development in the area. It is important to get it right.
On Monday October 26th, TCRA delegated at the Town of Oakville Planning and Development Council Meeting and cited our concerns.
