[Dartmouth] 112-114 Wyse Road | 65 m | 19 fl | Proposed

I was going to post the rendering but Tumblr doesn't like me right now.

New proposal from Dunphy Wyse Road Developments for the former bank on the northeast corner of Wyse Road and Nantucket Avenue.

Case #22487 - 112-114 Wyse Road

Looks like this area is getting the Young/Robie treatment of some much-needed density and investment.

Good luck with that having apparently zero parking in that location.

Come to think of it, this is right next to a major bus terminal, a 10-15 min walk to the ferry and soon to be along new bike infrastructure on Wyse and the bridge. With so much underused land here, this whole area is prime for some change.

Landscape plans don't appear to show any spots at grade, except vague labeling of "existing parking lot" adjacent to the developed area (to the southeast). I took a look at Google Maps, and it looks like there's 130+/- spots between this site and the adjacent Sportsplex... more to the northeast between this proposal/Sportsplex and the transit bridge terminal. Probably not wise to count to heavily on parking provided by adjacent property.

104 spots in the interior of the building.

All the surface parking there is either rented or allocated to the Sportsplex to my knowledge.

Also across the street from an amazing Montreal Bagel shop! And literally next door to the Sportsplex. And walking distance to downtown Dartmouth as well. Pretty great location in a lot of ways. Except that it will stand alone in a desert of strip malls and surface parking. But perhaps the area will fill in over time. I'm hoping Young / Robie / Windsor will fill in over time as well. Really great looking building. Bummer that not all units have balconies though. Looks like the Bachelors will be balcony-less.

The parking to the east belongs to HRM and is part of the Dartmouth Common and the parking revenue goes to the Sportsplex.
The lot is just 92 feet wide and is narrower at Wyse.
This design appears to show the building footprint as filling the 2 lots.
The land to the west belongs to HRM as part of the roadway and sidewalk.
What was the Scotiabank sign marked the edge of the commercial property.
In the Centre Plan the sidewalk and the grassy area is zoned C and I have pointed out to staff that their map incorrectly zones a portion.
This map shows the public space may be retained but the proponent has talked with HRM re purchasing or leasing the space for patios or streetscaping.

Registered Office for the company 112 Wyse Road Partnership is a duplex on Walter Havill Drive and the partnership comprises the two Preszler brothers from Toronto and a related company is headed by Alex Dunphy at the Walter Havill Drive home.
Parking underground : 104 spaces
