The City of Burlington is seeking public input on a revised option for redevelopment of the Waterfront Hotel Lands.
On Thursday, Sept. 14, two community workshops took place at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre. At the workshops, participants shared their input on an “emerging preferred concept” for the Waterfront Hotel site. This concept had two towers on either side of John St, ranging from 14-18 storeys on the West and 20-25 on the East, with public space between the buildings, some to the West and some to the south.
The city heard from many participants that they would like to see more green space on the west side of the study site, next to Spencer Smith Park. Based on this feedback, a “second emerging preferred concept” has been created. It moves the buildings more to the east of the site, with a 4-storey podium connecting them at the foot of John St and along Lakeshore ROad. The heights of the two towers remain the same as in Emerging Preferred Concept #1, at 14-18 on the West and 20-25 on the East.
Take the Waterfront Hotel Study survey to view these emerging concepts and share your feedback. Which one, if any, do you prefer and why?
The input gathered from this survey will be used to help inform a final preferred concept which will be presented to City Council in the new year.
The survey will take approximately two minutes to complete.
