Public Engagement - High Performance Development Standard

The City is developing a High Performance Development Standard that will support sustainable and resilient design in new developments.

The proposed High Performance Development Standard seeks to apply minimum performance measures to new development through the review and approval of site plan and plan of subdivision applications. It includes metrics that will protect our environment, public health and safety, and respond to climate change. 

The High Performance Development Standard will help the City to meet the sustainable and resilient design objectives in the Official Plan as well as contribute to the greenhouse gas reduction targets. The largest share of Ottawa’s greenhouse gas emissions (46 per cent) come from buildings. New buildings that are designed to be energy efficient will reduce emissions and save on costly retrofits in the future.

Visit Engage Ottawa to find out more on the measures and phasing and provide your feedback.

311 Somerset Public Meeting
Dec 15, 2021 at 6:00pm 8:00pm EST
Online event

An 16-storey mixed-use building has been proposed for the corner of Somerset and O'Connor with 140 residential units, ground floor commercial space, 67 underground vehicle parking spaces and 110 bicycle parking spaces. The proposal requires a Zoning By-law Amendment and Official Plan Amendment to increase the maximum building height, change the land use of the site and request relief from certain landscaping requirements and setbacks.

The site is currently split-zoned with a Traditional Mainstreet designation on the Somerset frontage allowing 6 storeys and an R5 zoning with a 16-storey height limit on the northern section of the property. Through the Centretown Secondary Plan, a 9-storey building is permitted on the Somerset frontage and a 16-storey building is permitted on the northern section of the property. The applicant is proposing to rezone the whole property as Traditional Mainstreet and introduce a site-specific zoning schedule. 

Join the public meeting on Wednesday, December 15 to learn more about the project and share your comments and concerns with the applicant team.
