Ottawa developer Claridge Homes is seeking a zoning change from city hall so it can build a 27-storey condo tower at 287 Lisgar St.

According to a “community heads up” sent out by city staff on Monday morning, the 81.6-metre building would have 173 residential units and 10,070 square metres of gross floor area.

The property, located west of O’Connor Street and east of Bank Street, would have 152 parking spaces on eight levels of underground parking.

Before development can go ahead, however, the property will need to be rezoned to allow for its height.

The site was subject of a dispute between Claridge Homes and the City of Ottawa in 2010. The city had rejected a rezoning request from Claridge, who was seeking to build a 16-storey building at the site.

The Ontario Municipal Board overruled the city but the development did not go ahead.
