Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands

Project Description

The Harry Jerome Neighbourhood Lands have been designed to be a complete community, providing a range of housing and tenure types, complementary uses, and community services, as well as significant public space including an enhanced public park along Lonsdale Avenue. The project includes two towers, one 30 storeys tall and the other 26, as well as four mid-rise buildings that will be either five or six storeys tall.

The project is introducing approximately 800 new residential units. The units will be provided in a mix of tenure types catering to a range of individual and family needs; stratified condominium units, market rental units, affordable rental units, and subsidized housing are spread throughout the site. Neighbourhood focused commercial, including a grocery store and restaurant are included in the mix of uses, as well as a commercial office building providing space for offices and health services.

Community amenities are a central feature of the new node. The City will be taking possession of 50,000 square feet of subsidized housing, or approximately 80 units. Additionally, the City will ensure that ten percent of rental units will be kept at affordable rates, 10% below average rents as determined by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation. A new daycare will provide more than twenty spaces for the neighbourhood children. An important feature for the whole city will be the revitalization and expansion of Crickmay and Rodger Burnes parks along Lonsdale Avenue and the creation of new plazas – adjacent to amenities and commercial areas – in which urban life can unfold.

Process Description

An important part of the rezoning was the implementation of Development Permit Area guidelines that control development of the entire site. The Development Permit Area guidelines complement the City’s zoning bylaws and sets requirements concerning sustainability, landscape, and urban design.
