The City of Ottawa has received a Site Plan application to construct a new one-storey building with mezzanine and inventory parking area for an automobile dealership. The property is located on the north side of Hazeldean Road, at the intersection of Sweetnam Drive and Hazeldean Road.
The site is currently occupied by a temporary sales office and graveled automotive sales dealership for the Canadian Auto Mall.
The purpose of the application is to permit the development of an automotive sales dealership. The proposed development includes a 531 square metre, one-storey building with mezzanine, to house a showroom, and a sales and service area. There will be a parking area with 14 dedicated surface parking spaces (including one barrier free space) for the showroom and service centre. This parking area as well as the inventory parking will be paved. Vehicular access to Hazeldean Road will be relocated towards the centre of the site.
Landscaping improvements are proposed around the perimeter of the property, including a 5-metre wide landscape strip along the entire frontage of the lot and 10-metre wide landscape strips along the western and northerly property lines. The landscape buffer along the eastern property line will range from 10-20 metres, providing a continuous 30 metre setback from the inventory parking area to the normal high water mark of Poole Creek. Snow storage areas are proposed along the rear limits of the paved parking area.
