The City of Ottawa has received a Zoning By-law Amendment to remove the caps on gross floor area (GFA) that currently restrict the development of the subject properties.
The subject sites are all are situated south of Highway 417, north of Maple Grove Road, west of Huntmar Road and east of Carp Road and the proposed North-South Arterial extension. The site at 2500 Palladium Drive contains the Palladium Autopark (11 existing units) and the other two properties are currently vacant. The vacant properties consist of periphery landscaping and surface parking on a gravel base. The three sites vary in size: 2499 Palladium Drive is 7.8 hectares; 2500 Palladium Drive is 21.6 hectares; and 675 Autopark Private is 1.52 hectares.
The application has been submitted to remove the caps on the cummulative gross floor area of uses within the GM22 (H12) Zone – General Mixed Use Zone, Subzone 22, height limit of 12 meters.
The proposed rezoning will remove the following development caps:
- Automobile dealership use: maximum cummulative GFA of 21,135 m2;
- Restaurant use: maximum cummulative GFA of 930 m2;
- Farmer’s market use: combined maximum GFA and outdoor space of 3,720 m2; and
- Bank and accessory uses to an automobile dealership: maximum cummulative GFA of 11,150 m2.
