Could This New Development be Part of Oakville’s Future?


The town of Oakville has grown significantly in the last couple of years, and it is not showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Over the past couple of years, the town has welcomed new businesses, buildings, and of course people. And another new development may just see the light of day in Oakville.

Emshih Developments Inc. has submitted an application to the town proposing a new retirement development.

If approved, the development would consist of a 20-storey and a seven-storey retirement dwelling with 323 units in total. The buildings, according to a meeting agenda, would be connected by a common amenity podium with commercial uses at the grade level.

The site location of the proposed development is 351 Dundas St. E. - at the northeast corner of Trafalgar Road and Dundas Street East, just east of the existing Shell gas station.


The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) approved the draft plan and zoning by-law regarding this development proposal back in September of 2014. As a result, the proposal is currently in the third phase of the overall subdivision process.

And although no decisions have been made regarding the application yet, it will be discussed at the Oakville site plan committee meeting taking place today (July 23) at 5 p.m.

And, according to the meeting agenda, it is being recommended that the application be approved subject to the conditions outlined in 'Appendix A' of the staff report from July 15, 2019.

A few conditions that are outlined in Appendix A include, but are not limited to, planning services (final drawings, site plan, elevations, landscape plan, canopy cover plan and chart, grading plan, lighting plan, and construction management and staging plan), a cost estimate, securities, site plan agreement, as well as parks and open space.
