Homestead plans 11-storey apartment near future Cleary LRT station


A Kingston-based developer is proposing an 11-storey apartment building located next to a mixed-use property it already owns on Richmond Road.

Homestead has filed an application with the city to build a 132-unit complex at 851 Richmond Rd., on the same property as its existing 11-storey Lord Richmond apartments and just west of a proposed 24-storey condo complex on the site of Kristy’s restaurant.

The site is about 250 metres northeast of a planned LRT station at Cleary Avenue that is projected to be completed in 2023 as part of phase two of the east-west Confederation Line.

The new building will replace the existing parking lot and will include two levels of underground parking that can accommodate 128 vehicles. There will also be above-ground parking with 54 spaces as well as spots for 128 bicycles.

Highrise residential development is already permitted at the location, so no zoning amendments are required.
