The City of Ottawa's planning committee is set to consider two large rezoning applications on Tuesday morning.
The committee is being asked to approve the rezoning of a 121-hectare site along Old Montreal Road and Regional Road 174 in Orleans to allow for the construction of 1,030 residential units.
The majority of the land is currently zoned for rural uses. If the rezoning is approved, the site could be used for residential, commercial and other purposes in the first stage of the proposed Cardinal Creek Village subdivision.
Plans call for "435 single detached, 132 semi-detached and 463 multiple attached dwellings," according to a report from city staff filed with the city’s planning department.
There would also be several blocks of high-density mixed-use and commercial development.
The committee will also vote on a rezoning application for 12 Stirling Ave. in Kitchissippi.
The site is home to a former school that was used as the Odawa Native Friendship Centre. If approved, the rezoning application would allow for the construction of a 17-storey residential tower, four townhouses and the conversion of the former school into lofts.
