Developer hopes to turn Dollard-des-Ormeaux strip mall into mixed-use building

WATCH: A developer is planning to demolish a popular strip mall in Dollard-des-Ormeaux on the West Island and transform it into a multi-purpose building with commercial and residential units. The details of the redevelopment will be made public next week. But as Global’s Felicia Parrillo reports, the project is sparking opposition.

Accès électronique in Dollard-des-Ormeaux has been in its current location for over 20 years.

The store has been a staple of the strip mall on the corner of Brunswick and Davignon.

But its days may be numbered.

The owner said that when it renewed its lease not too long ago, the landlord added a redevelopment with notice clause because of its intent to demolish the mall and rebuild.

“I’m in total disagreement,” said the store’s manager, Veronique St-Pierre. “Unfortunately, they’re taking away from local businesses serving the local community.”

A Dollard-des-Ormeaux city councillor said the city was presented with a proposal by Montreal real-estate developer, Devmont, to redevelop the lot.

And as the councillor of the district, Anastasia Assimakopoulos said she has some concerns about the plans.

“I’m concerned about how it would integrate into the current built environment,” she said. “How it shapes how our district is going to develop — the traffic, people’s houses and how they’re going to be impacted.”

Those who have seen the plans say three buildings are being proposed.

The project reportedly includes commercial units on the ground level and up to 400 residential units above.

They also say the proposal includes a green space and an underground parking lot for residents.

The developer would not share the plans with Global News but in a statement wrote it is proposing a mixed-use project.

“[The project is] transit-oriented and based on sustainable development and design, that we believe will beautify and substantially improve the quality of life for residents of this neighbourhood in DDO. We are happy to invite all our neighbours to discover the project and discuss with our team at our open doors on May 24th and 25th.”

It added that it has already started discussions with some tenants who would like to stay in the building.

Among them is the owner of Kitchen 73, who said he’s excited about the opportunity to be part of the future project.

“[The developer] is putting up a beautiful project in an area that needs it — with the new REM that’s right close by,” said Carmen Anoia, Kitchen 73’s owner.

The developer said that invitations to the information sessions scheduled for next week have been sent by mail to residents who live near the lot.

The city of Dollard-des-Ormeaux says representatives will be present at both sessions to observe the event and to provide information on the subsequent steps of the legal process.

After the information sessions, the city will hold public consultations, where residents can express their opinions about the project.

400 unités c’est vraiment énorme pour un terrain de cette taille et pour seulement 10 étages.

I’m not sure if the owner is actually a NIMBY or they’re just trying to protect their current location, but Galleries des Sources could really use the extra foot traffic that development could bring. I hope we get more buses passing by because the walk from GdS and the REM isn’t pleasant.

Residents in Montreal’s West Island aim to force referendum on major condo project

Developer wants to replace strip mall in Dollard-des-Ormeaux with 3 buildings, up to 400 units

Residents in Montreal’s West Island are worried that a plan to demolish a strip mall and replace it with 400 condo units across three buildings will be an eyesore and bring more cars to an area already overloaded with traffic, and they’re trying to push back before it’s too late.

The condo buildings, which would be mixed-use with commercial units on each of the ground floors, would be located in the city of Dollard-des-Ormeaux on Brunswick Boulevard between Sources Boulevard and Davignon Street. It’s also steps away from Highway 40 and a future station of the light rail train network known as the REM.

One of the buildings will be twelve storeys. It’s not clear how tall the other two buildings will be, but according to city documents, they will have 130 and 147 condo units, respectively.

“I’m for new ideas and new things but it has to make sense,” said Christina Bastian, who lives near the strip mall. “For the amount of traffic that already comes by here, I’m not sure I understand how they think it’s realistic putting twelve-storey buildings on this corner.”

Bastian went to a meeting at city hall last month to learn more about the project. She says the answers to her questions about parking spaces and how the new buildings would be integrated into the area were vague.

She’s now among several residents who are against the project and trying to get the word out in hopes that at least 649 people will sign a registry at city hall. That number of signatures would trigger a referendum on the redevelopment plan.

“I wanted people to have a voice because I felt like it was already a done deal,” Bastian said. “I wanted to at least bring it to a point where people can say yea or nay.”

Referendum on condo project is a must, DDO resident says

Christina Bastian, a resident of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, is hoping enough of her neighbours sign a registry in order to force a referendum on a major condo development project.

‘Negligible’ effect on traffic

According to the project’s website, the property is owned by SSCALIA Properties Inc. In an interview with CBC News, a spokesperson for the company described it as a “transit-oriented development” that would have a “negligible” effect on car traffic given the nearby buses and and the future REM station.

Karim Boulos said SSCALIA hired a firm to study the effects the condo and commercial units would have on traffic in the area. The developer only shared a small excerpt of that study with CBC News.

Boulos also said the company has been as transparent as possible with residents, having given them several opportunities to weigh in, including a two-day information session last May.

“We’ve gone above and beyond what the bylaws and what the law requires in such a process,” Boulos said, adding that several changes to the project were made as a result.

He also said the back-and-forth with the city’s urban planning department has gone on for more than a year. In a brief statement, the city of Dollard declined a CBC News request for comment due to Wednesday’s registry and the referendum that could follow.

There is a building in a large lot.

Some residents are worried that redeveloping this property, which includes a strip mall, will overload the area with traffic. Carmine Anoia, the owner of Kitchen 73, is on board with the project and says the area is need of being revamped. (SSCALIA Properties inc.)

Condos spell end for 20-year-old shop

Some business owners welcome the new development and already have deals in place to set up their shops there once it is built, even if it means being shut down for a few years.

“That area definitely needs a revamp,” said Carmine Anoia, the owner of several Kitchen 73 restaurants, including the one in DDO.

“We know that the project is vibrant so that we’ll take those two years off and come back and be stronger than ever.”

For Ranjit Singh, who owns Singh Farm, a South Asian supermarket at the mall, the condo development spells the end of his business’s 20-year-run.

“I’m now 61 years old, I cannot go move somewhere else to build up again,” he said.

The registry will be open at city hall on Wednesday between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.

John Bakakis, who has lived in DDO for nearly 40 years and is against the condo development, says the referendum can stop — or at least slow — the arrival of high-rise condo buildings in the city.

“We want a proper development,” he said. “We don’t need a Frankenstein’s monster.”

Il me semble qu’un centre commercial doit être vraiment mort pour générer moins de trafic qu’un développement résidentiel…

Le référendum, c’est pour un changement de zonage?

Le promoteur demande plusieurs modifications à la réglementation, c’est pourquoi il s’agit d’une demande de PPCMOI.

Le référendum viserait à refuser les dérogations.

Jvois que les colons de banlieue changeront jamais. Ils préfèrent les parking et le CO2 dans l’atmosphère.

Merci! Est-ce que les plans proviennent du site de la Ville de D-d-O? Je n’ai rien trouvé mis à part les avis publics…

Yeah people are pissed :joy: honestly it’s one of the better projects in DDO. As for traffic, developers are actually asking for less car parking than what the zoning demands, and emphasizing available transit options rather than the 40 like some other projects would.

Seriously though. This is the way things are going in general, my new construction for example has I believe 1 spot per 2 units as it is near Rapid transit. Granted, in this case it isn’t the best access to transit but you have the 208, 209, 215 and 409 basically at your door.

If we honest to goodness allow some real density in the west, things like Bixi, Communauto, and bigger investments in bus infrastructure (Real-Time Control signals, BRT, etc) become viable in these areas, making movement easier. I for one would love to see car sharing built in to new projects in the west. Parking can be set to 1 per unit (or less ideally) and then chuck a few round trip communautos in there and you’re looking at simple way of reducing the total number of cars.

All this to say that I genuinely believe that in blocking these projects, they’re making traffic worse in a roundabout way.

De toute façon la seule façon de contraindre l’étalement urbain est de densifier en priorité l’ile de Montréal et particulièrement le coeur des différentes villes sur son territoire. Malheureusement tant que Québec ne donnera pas le ton en prenant des décisions claires pour densifier adéquatement les zones urbaines déjà implantées, il sera difficile de convaincre la population de l’urgence d’agir.

UPDATE :mega: There will not be a referendum on this project. On Wednesday, a total of 377 residents signed the registry. The number of signatures needed to trigger a referendum was 649.
