Full Agenda on the City website.

100 Wilson Street, Hamilton

The City of Hamilton, acting as the developer of the proposed Police Investigative Services Building, is hoping to use the Committee of Adjustment to gain approval of large setbacks for the proposed buildings parking and secure storage areas.

The building has been panned by members of the City's Design Review Panel. The item was tabled at a May meeting when city planning staff did not recommend approval. (Public Works is the applicant department).

766 Barton Street East, Hamilton

The application is to legalize an existing multiple unit dwelling on Barton between Lottridge and Barnesdale. The building is currently zoning as single family residential. The owner is asking for four units and some commercial on the first floor.

1143 Main Street East, Hamilton

The owner of the property on the northwest corner of Balmoral and Main is asking for variances to permit three residential units on the second floor and a 47-seat restaurant on the first floor. Each one of the dwelling units is proposed to be an average of only 34.8 square metres, wheres the requires dwelling units be at least 65 square metres.

The restaurant proposes to include an outdoor patio.

The building is directly across from the former No Frills and Bright Spot restaurant. It was a 24-hour variety store about a decade ago when the No Frills was Delta Bingo, and sold a lot of bingo dabbers.

With the small apartments, it will be interesting to see the staff comments when they are issued.

85 King Street East and 8-10 John Street North, Hamilton (Treble Hall)

The new-ish owners of Treble Hall, Yoke Group, are looking to convert the upper floors of this designated heritage building into 15 dwelling units. The conversion requires five parking spots.

The City's official position is there is a crisis of parking shortage in the Central Business District.

Expect this variance to be quickly approved. DISCLOSURE: While I'm not an active member of the Beasley Neighbourhood Association, the BNA may request I comment on this file at the hearing on behalf of the BNA.

21 John Street South, Hamilton

The owners, Yoke Group, are changing their plans for the property from five stories of commercial to a mixed use building with the first floor commercial and the upper floors containing 24 dwelling units.

The building is directly to the rear of the Royal Connaught complex.

The conversion requires parking spots, which are yet to be defined. As the property contains no area for parking, the owners needs a variance for no parking.
