Urban Strategies was retained by FRAM Building Group to assist in the development approvals process for the property at 10 Ann Street in Mississauga. Located in the heart of Port Credit, the site is proposed to be redeveloped with a 15-storey residential condominium building that will support community growth and help to strengthen the vitality of the nearby Lakeshore Road commercial corridor. The project optimizes the use of an existing surface parking lot and single-storey building, and supports transit-oriented development on a site that is approximately 300 metres from the Port Credit GO Station and a block away from the future Hurontario light rail transit corridor. In support of this application, Urban Strategies prepared a Planning Rationale report and worked closely with the architects and client team to ensure the design of the building addressed the community’s sensitivities to building height and massing. Urban Strategies also participated in the public consultation activities, helping to build consensus around the development concept and facilitating an expedited approvals process. The project was approved by City of Mississauga Council in late 2015.
