Taggart Realty Management has submitted a final application package to the City of Ottawa for an Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment to permit the redevelopment of three properties, located at 359 Kent Street, and 436 and 444 MacLaren Street. The original development application has undergone a Council-approved Public Consultation Strategy which has included two rounds of City review, and three rounds of public consultation including sessions with the public, the Centretown Community Association, Heritage Ottawa, and a Special Design Review Panel. The result is a revised development which retains components of all 3 heritage assets on the properties, has a tower height of 27-storeys, provides a Privately-Owned Public Space in the centre of the site, and provides transition to the adjacent heritage district through a thoughtfully designed 4-storey podium. Two civic use spaces are also proposed within the development, which are to be dedicated to cultural and institutional users providing a unique civic function within the Centretown community. With this final package submission, the application is planned to go before Planning and Housing Committee and City Council by the end of 2023. For full application details, please search 359 Kent Street on the City of Ottawa’s DevApps site at
