New Life for Collingwood Project

Collingwood | by Catherine Thompson  

Former Victoria School at Maple and Sixth rezoned to allow for condos and homes.

A plan to put condos into another of Collingwood's former schools has taken another step forward.

Town Council has approved an official plan amendment to re-designate 400 Maple Street, between Fifth and Sixth Streets, from low density residential to medium density.

The change will allow the developers to preserve the 99 year old Victoria Annex which is part of the former Victoria School.

They want to renovate the Annex into a seven unit condo building as well as build 2 three-unit townhouses and four duplexes.

The project has been delayed several time since 2005.

The change must now be approved by Simcoe County and then there would have to be a zoning by-law amendment and plan of subdivision approved by Collingwood council.

A partner in the project, Chris Skelton, says they have no idea how long the process will take so there's no start date or cost for the project yet.

He says he's just happy to have cleared this hurdle.
