121 Northwestern Meeting Notice – August 8

121 Northwestern AvenueChamplain Park residents are invited to view and discuss the redevelopment proposal of this property with Novatech Engineering.

Location: Champlain Park Fieldhouse
Date:         Thursday, August 8, 2013
Time:         7:30PM

Members of Champlain Park Community Association Executive will be attending this meeting.

An application has been filed with the Committee of Adjustment for consent to sever 121 Northwestern Avenue into two parcels to permit the construction of 2 adjoining units.

The double unit is effectively a 3 storey building with the basement/ 1st floor set somewhat into the sloped grade of the lot.

Each unit has a roof deck accessed by an enclosed stair well projection – on the northern unit to the rear of the dwelling and on the southern unit to the front.

The only variances required are for the front yard setbacks and reduced lot widths. The existing linden tree is proposed to be retained.

A detailed presentation will be given by representatives of Novatech Engineering followed by a question and answer session.
