What is the purpose of the amendment?

The owner of 894 Adelaide St North is proposing to develop a new 2.5 storey apartment building with 9 units in the rear while maintaining the existing building. The City of London is considering an amendment to the zoning by-law regarding the land at 894 Adelaide Street North. Below is a map of the proposed site and surrounding neighbourhood:

This would permit a range of cluster dwellings including single detached,  semi-detached, duplex, triplex, fourplex, townhouse, stacked townhouse and apartment building uses. The rendering of the property can be seen below:


Specifically, the Applicant is seeking to have the City permit a new 2.5 storey apartment building with 9 units in the rear while maintaining the existing building. The subject lands are within the Urban Corridor Place Type in The London Plan. A range of
