A Montreal developer has been asked to redraw plans for a six-storey condominium complex he has proposed building alongside the Maison Joseph Théorêt, an 18th century heritage farmhouse on Gouin Blvd.
On Monday night, February 4, the Pierrefonds Roxboro borough council refused to grant zoning modifications that would have allowed the developer, Oren Vered to move forward with its plan to build a 125-unit condo complex on Gouin Blvd. at Aumais St.
With Parc Ménard Parc on the opposite side of Gouin Blvd., the property has a clear view of the backriver and Île Ménard.
Bassam Chaarani, a borough spokesperson said the council’s actions followed recommendations from its urban planning advisory committee but, he added, those recommendations are not public.
The backriver development plan was the second to be proposed by the Vered Group since last November. The first project proposed moving the Maison Théorêt, circa 1780, and constructing two eight-storey condo towers on either side of it.
