At a public consultation on November 6th at Grace Lutheran Church, Architect Bill Hicks presented a proposal to redevelop the Medical Building at 358 Reynolds Street (owned by Transmetro Ltd.) to a three-storey, 14 condo building.
TCRA members questioned whether it is acceptable to replace a legal, non-conforming structure with a medium-density (high end of range) development within a stable, low-density residential area in the Trafalgar Road Heritage District. The transition between heritage and new homes to a three-storey condo will cause massing and shadowing issues in the area. Our members are also very concerned with density creep especially as it might affect those properties south on Reynolds St. and east and west on MacDonald Rd.
We are hopeful that our concerns will be reflected in a revised iteration.
