Property owner ClubLink wants to partner with Minto Communities and Richcraft Homes to build more than 1,500 homes on the 71-hectare site.
A staff report released last week urged the planning committee to reject ClubLink’s proposal to build more than 1,500 housing units on the site of the Kanata Golf and Country Club.
ClubLink’s proposal calls for more than 1,500 housing units on the current site of the Kanata Golf and Country Club.
Developer says says the building at 178-200 Isabella St. would feature about 4,000 square feet of commercial space and 251 residential suites in a mix of one- and two-bedroom units.
U-shaped building would feature 251 residential suites and about 6,000 square feet of retail space fronting on Beechwood Avenue.
Controversial proposal now calls for slightly smaller housing footprint and more green space.
Opponents say the proposal violates a longstanding agreement to keep the property as greenspace.
