A Gatineau-based homebuilder is preparing to present updated plans to nearby residents for a 12-storey apartment building on St. Laurent Boulevard, according to the city’s website.

A planning rationale prepared for Brigil Homes proposes a 116,249 square-foot structure at 460 St. Laurent Blvd., just north of Montreal Road.

The first floor would be reserved for commercial uses, with 120 residential units located between floors two and 12. A thirteenth floor penthouse would have an “outdoor amenity” area for residents.

Parking will be provided in a two-level below grade structure with 60 parking spaces, as well as 30 outdoor parking spaces behind the building.

The developer is asking that the property be rezoned to permit a 12-storey residential building and space on the 13th floor for rooftop amenities, as well as bylaw changes to parking.

FoTenn Consultants, which prepared the report, stated the area currently has an automotive service shop and some surface parking.

The city’s online file for the project says a notice of a public meeting has been sent to area residents.
