Windmill Developments proposes to build a 19.2(+) metre 6-storey condominium on property currently owned by the Southminster United Church.

Residents have been consistently asking that our neighbourhood’s maximum height limits be protected by lowering the height of the proposed condominium to 15 metres. The proposed 6-storey 19.2(+) metre condo would be taller than the Church and taller than anything currently allowed in our neighbourhood.

You may also write to the Mayor and Councillors listed below prior to the decision by City of Ottawa Planning Committee. It is very important to write at this stage of the application process. Height concerns, as related to heritage, are the crucial issues.
