A Charlottetown developer who has one condominium project underway is seeking the city’s approval on another proposal for Queen Street.
Philip O’Halloran wants to build a three-storey, 14-unit, townhouse-style project at the corner of Queen and Passmore Streets. He has a four-storey, 12-unit condominium building underway on Richmond Street, behind the Arts Guild. O’Halloran expects tenants to begin moving in by June.
He said his new proposal, which has gone before the city’s planning board, would go next to the old Kays store on Queen Street.
“We’re going to create our own little corner block on Passmore and have our parking all in the back, off Passmore,’’ he said. “It’s a small L-shaped property but it’s a nice logical continuation of the existing streetscape, although we’re going to modernize it all with nice new brick.’’
The Charlottetown developer said the building would have a London townhouse style to it and each unit featuring an open concept.
As for clientele, O’Halloran said he wants to keep the 14 units as affordable as he can.
“I’d like to keep them all as rentals, not high-end rental but affordable, middle of the road, working persons-type downtown apartments.’’
If the city gives him the green light, construction would likely begin this spring.
O’Halloran said he has already held a neighbourhood meeting to bring area residents up to speed and got plenty of positive feedback.
His Richmond Street project features commercial space on the ground floor and units on the second, third and fourth. Each unit measures between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet.
