Dundas condo plan revealed
DUNDAS The manager of the Dundas Dairy Queen says a plan to build a seven-storey, 55-unit condominium on the site will improve that stretch of King Street East.
“It’s a dark spot in town. We’d like to bring light to it,” Reza Soufian said.
Soufian and Hamilton architect John Mokrycke brought drawings of the proposed Dairy Queen expansion to a recent community council meeting.
“We’d like to move as quickly as possible,” Mokrycke said.
Council members expressed no concerns about the application, which would produce a building that — at just under 80 feet high — will be a storey taller than an existing residential-commercial building next to it.
Preliminary drawings show the top two floors will be stepped back, so from the street, the structure will appear shorter than it is.
A 16-foot ground floor will include space for an expanded Dairy Queen and at least two more commercial operations.
The company that owns the property and Dairy Queen bought a former car dealership next door in November.
