The purpose of St. John's Development Regulations Amendment Number 526, 2012 is to rezone vacant land located on the south side of Stavanger Drive, east of Aberdeen Avenue, from the Commercial Regional (CR) Zone to the Residential Low Density (R1) Zone and the Open Space (O) Zone.

The amendments are in reference to an application submitted to the City of St. John's by Cabot Development Corporation Ltd. to rezone the subject property on the south side of Stavanger Drive to the Residential Low Density (R1) Zone to allow the development of a residential subdivision comprised of approximately 65 residential building lots for single-detached houses.

We had also discussed before about the industrial park area on Majors Path. We had a map of it I believe.

I find it interesting when you look at it there are actually 6, 10 story buildings proposed for the east end and in the pleasantville development it looks like both buildings have 2 towers, so if thats the case there could be 10 residential towers:
5 in the Tiffany village (4, 10 floors & one larger 9 floors)
4 in Pleasantville (10 floors)
as well as Kenny's pond (I know its not that tall but still has an urban presence)

(which has really gone overlooked in the overall development thread because of the other developments downtown)

A hotel was approved for Stavanger a while back I believe. It's hard to remember what has been proposed or approved and it's even more difficult to find it in our original thread.

I wonder when they'll start building it, I don't think the land has been cleared yet.

Are we including the centre of the city in this thread? It's sometimes referred to the east end.

I always thought of Bonaventure Ave-Allendale Road as the dividing line between East and West, you might consider that unless you are going to have a Central thread, or include Central in downtown, and you have to think of how much will be going ahead in these areas. The main thread can still be used for general downtown & area developments, considering any big downtown developments will liikely have their own threads. I would take Military-Harvey-Lemarchant Roads as the Northern boundary for the downtown area. You could also include the Torbay area and other northern suburbs in the East End. I would include St Phillips-Port Cv in the west for this purpose, leaving the Airport area in the East. (Confusing? ... but it would make sense on a map).

This is not really a great map, but it is essentially what I was saying.



Other specific areas could be added later if it is felt they are required.

Here is some information on the development in Pleasantville.

There is a request for proposals on two blocks of land, seen here in the PDF link. I assume this is not where the affordable housing is being built.

In addition to the new DND building and Long term care complex, this development will completely transform Pleasentville... for the better that is

I'm happy to see they are getting started, so how does this work? they sell the lots and land with the idea of what will be built there and someone else builds it and sells it?

That what it seems like to me. I guess the CLC has a master design and ultimately dictates what type of houses can be built at each lot. The builders/contractors would be like a franchisee... I'm not sure if that's the best analogy.

I'm surprised that all of the recently proposed hotels have been in the 3* range. For a city of this size, it's surprising the the Hotel Newfoundland is the only 4* choice available (although it is a very good choice, in my opinion).
