Altona Group


The applicant has submitted a Zoning By-law Amendment application to amend the City Centre Zoning By-law 7553/17. Altona Group is proposing a mixed-use development consisting of two buildings having heights of 25-storeys and 12-storeys, and a row of seven 3-storey townhouses.  The proposed development will contain a total of 391 units with approximately 850 square metres of grade related commercial uses. 

To facilitate this development, the applicant proposes to utilize the Bonus Zoning provisions of the City’s Official Plan to increase the maximum permit building height from 47 metres (approx. 15-storeys) to 80 metres (approx. 25-storeys), in exchange for the provision of a community benefit under Section 37 of the Planning Act.  In return for the additional increase in building height, the applicant is proposing to retain and restore the Old Liverpool House.

The applicant has requested the following specific amendments to the City Centre Zoning By-law to facilitate the development

  • Increase the maximum building height for the tower building from 47 metres to 80 metres 
  • Increase the maximum height of a podium for the tower building from 20 metres to 30 metres 
  • Increase the maximum height of a podium for the mid-rise building from 20 metres to 25 metres
  • Reduce the separation distance between the tower building and the mid-rise building from 25 metres to 19 metres, for the portions of the buildings that are between 37.5 metres and 40.0 metres in height
  • Exempt the minimum main wall stepback between the top 6 metres and 18 metres for a point tower greater than 73.5 metres
