The property is on a Municipal Register of heritage assets, but is not officially designated. When the developer came in for a demolition permit, staff reviewed the building and found is has significant heritage value, and recommended designation.
The developer withdrew the demolition permit to work with staff and the Heritage Burlington citizens’ advisory committee to find a way to incorporate the building into the development, possibly on the Locust side, and keep the building as commercial use (which is required on Locust).
My Take: I’m pleased that the developer is revising plans to incorporate this heritage asset, and thankful for staff and the committee for contributing to solutions. I will keep residents updated.
