City councillors have voted to rezone Kingston Road for a seven-storey, 49-unit condo and two town houses just east of Main Street on land including the former Dip ‘n Sip doughnuts property at 663 Kingston Rd.
As part of the rezoning, Streetcar Developments gave city planners a study showing another eight properties from Brookside Drive to Waverley Road that could at some point be developed into new three- to seven-storey buildings.
Although some residents petitioned to exclude the new condo from city street parking, councillors declined the request.
City councillors also voted to rezone Kingston Road between Beech and Balsam Avenues for a seven-storey Mitchell Lofts building with 93 condo units and a YMCA recreation centre on the ground and basement floors.
The property currently includes the Sherrin Funeral Home – set to close at the end of July – a one-storey YMCA building, and two detached houses on Balsam Avenue.
To accommodate the two levels of underground parking, the city will allow two-way traffic at the north end of Beech Avenue.
