Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City has received an application from NL Housing to rezone land at 20 Janeway Place from the Open Space (O) Zone to the Apartment 1 (A1) Zone to accommodate an apartment building development of 4 two-storey apartment buildings on the 12,445 square-metre lot. Each apartment building will contain 8 units for a total count of 32 units.

The subject property is provincially owned and is designated and zoned Open Space. The property once contained a helicopter landing pad used by the former Janeway Children’s Hospital, before the hospital moved to the Health Sciences Centre. The landing pad is still visible on the site. The Open Space Zone was applied to provide a safety buffer of no development around the heli-pad. The lot is not a formal area of recreational open space. The applicant has proposed to rezone to A1 to accommodate the housing development. A Municipal Plan amendment will be required, but a St. John’s Urban Region Regional Plan amendment is not needed, as the property is designated regionally as Urban Development.
