WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? Sky-high waterfront condos deliberate for Oshawa

Two new buildings, between 30 and 35 storeys, with 1,410 apartments and ground-floor commercial space could be built near the Port of Oshawa.

Here’s the plan:

• The developer wants to build two new residential/commercial mixed-use buildings at 80 Harbor Rd., east of Simcoe Street South in Oshawa.

• The plan has two phases.

• Phase 1 is a mixed-use building, between 18 stores and 35 stores high, with 720 apartments and approximately 469 square meters (5,049 square feet) of commercial space on the ground floor.

• Phase 2 is a second mixed-use building, between 16 storeys and 30 storeys high, with 690 apartments and approximately 569 sq. m. (6,129 sq. ft.) of ground floor commercial space.

• The proposed buildings, known as Nahid Harbor Condos, could be the first high-rise condos built at the Port of Oshawa.

• Currently, the property is vacant.

• To make the plans a reality, the builder will need an Official Plan amendment and rezoning to allow increased residential density, building height, and height of a landscaped deck over a garage; and to allow reduced required parking, front yard and side yard depths.

Oshawa is seeking public comments on the plans for the buildings. A public meeting will be held.

When: Monday, Feb. 7 at 6:30 pm
