[Halifax] Camille Residences | 24 m | 8 fl | U/C

The subject properties are located on the corner of Bilby Street and Isleville Street. The lands are designated Major Commercial in the Peninsula North Detailed Plan Area under the Halifax Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS), and are zoned C-2 (General Business) under the Halifax Peninsula LUB.

The applicant proposes that HRM apply a zoning schedule, Schedule Q, upon the property, which then would allow Halifax and West Community Council to consider a development agreement for a residential building. Both the application of the proposed schedule and the development agreement are to be considered simultaneously.

The proposed development consists of a 37-unit residential building (4 townhouse-style units and 33 units on the upper floors) with a total height of 8 storeys (~80 feet). Driveway access to the site is proposed from Bilby Street which leads to an internal grade level parking area and two levels of underground parking."

Love the ground-floor townhouses!

Aside from the downtown and the western portion of the north end (Young/Robie), there seems to be quite a few 8-storey-ish development proposals springing up around the peninsula.

It seems that 7 or 8 storeys is the new 3-storey Highland Park Special. Unless you're on the corner of Windsor and Willow.

I second this. Too bad there are only 4 units... and unit #3 is teensy!!

Project was presumably approved tonight. I had to leave council before the decision was announced.

I saw Jersey Barriers around what I think is this site today... looks like demo might start soon.

That looks a lot like St. Joesph's Square

Cookie-cutter architecture! Perhaps this design is to become the new version of the Highfield Park Special in HRM.
