Bronte Village Mall

Posted May 21, 2014

 

As of August 2011 the site has been sold to Goldmanco - no new application has been made to the Town at this time. The new owner has appealed the original application (under OPA 275) to the OMB. (see case  PL110708 at http://www.omb.gov.on.ca/english/eStatus/eStatus.html for further information). A prehearing has been set for November 9th at 10:00 at Oakville Municipal Building. Details will follow as they become available.

On March 31, 2009 an application was presented to the Town. In summary the proposal includes: no tall buildings on Lakeshore (less than 3 stories); taller buildings will be on Sovereign St.; there are plans for a skating rink, a park, a town square, office buildings, retail shopping, two to three stories on Lakeshore, a 21 storey tower on the northwest corner as well as town homes. The western half of the mall will be demolished, with plans to begin the construction on Sovereign St. with the condo tower and move on to office/retail buildings. The Fire hall Restaurant is a welcome and essential tenant but they will have to relocate temporarily; there will be an attractive atrium, buildings are stepped back, green roofed buildings, space for the arts. Sobeys will be moved to the Southeast corner on the property and be located on the second storey. It may take many years to have the entire area built. Underground parking (1200 spaces) in addition to approximately 130 parking spaces on the surface is planned. The total number of dwelling units is 451.
