Oshawa considers 12-storey downtown condo apartment from Atria Developments

Atria Development s first Oshawa project was the Parkwood Residences at Bond and Centre streets, which was built in 2007

A 12-storey, 213-unit apartment building is coming to the eastern edge of Oshawa’s downtown, pending future staff and council approval.

Atria Developments, one of the busier developers in Oshawa with a number of projects in the city either built, under construction or in the planning stages, wants to build a mixed-use condominium complex at Division and Bond Streets.

The building would have 1,387 square-feet of commercial development on the ground floor.

The proposal first reached the committee level three years ago when Atria submitted a proposal for a 11-storey, 100-unit building that was subsequently declared “not feasible” by staff and the matter dropped. That proposal was on vacant land at 35,39 and 45 Division Street.

The developer then added land at 196, 200 and 204 Bond Street and 46 Kenneth Avenue for the revised proposal.

A zoning amendment would have to be passed to approve the proposal as the project comes in at 761 units per hectare, which is above the current limit of 550 units per hectare.

The project was referred back to staff to ensure compliance with the City’s Landscaping Design Policies, engineering standards and other policies.
