Marcus R. Létourneau spoke to the revised application and the submitted presentation

changes between the submissions.


General discussion ensued, specifically regarding the requirement for the facade to

remain in situ (a Council ratified motion from the Municipal Heritage Committee

meeting, May, 2019). The agent interpreted the motion as being an opportunity to leave

the facade in situ which according to the agent is the best way to ensure preservation.

Committee members had questions regarding zoning and the agent was able to answer



Moved by Amanda Demers that the following apply to the revised submission;

- in light of the committee's concern about the height of the building being

significantly higher than any neighbouring residential buildings including the

commercial buildings located in the nearby downtown area, that the proponent

- the Committee requests that the May, 2019 request for a design charrette be

undertaken and that Committee members David Parker, Philip Hoad, Amanda

Demers, Drew Chapmanand Gordon Stratford (Vice Chair of the Urban Design

Committee) and members of the LHC Heritage Planning and Archaeology team

committing to supplying the applicant/agent with input for consideration before the

end of January 2022.
