UrbanSolutions Planning & Land Development Consultants Inc. is the authorized planning consultant acting on behalf of Parkside Hills Inc., the owner of 609 & 615 Hamilton Street North, 3 Nisbet Boulevard, and 129-137 Truedell Circle.

The proposal for the subject property entails a multi-lot residential development for 63 units, consisting of 2 semi-detached units, 15 townhouse units, and 46 back-to-back townhouse units. A future Common Element Condominium will establish a shared private road which 39 units will front onto and will include 12 visitor parking spaces. The remaining 24 units will front onto municipal right-of-ways.

To facilitate this proposal, applications were submitted to the City of Hamilton on December 23rd of 2016, to amend the Urban Hamilton Official Plan and Zoning By-Law and to create a Draft Plan of Subdivision.

The purpose of this website is to provide interested parties with access to the proposed development application details, supporting studies and access to participate in the planning process.


The proposed Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment and Draft Plan of Subdivision have been appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (formerly the Ontario Municipal Board).

Since the appeal, UrbanSolutions and the project team have reviewed the comments provided by area residents, municipal departments and external agencies. In response to these comments, a revised concept plan and a draft Plan of Subdivision has been prepared and it will be the focus of the future LPAT hearing.

The revised concept plan proposes 53 residential units comprised of a semi-detached unit, townhouses and back-to-back dwellings along with the completion of Truedell Circle as a public road. Both the revised concept plan and draft Plan of Subdivision have been uploaded and can be viewed on the micro-site, please refer to the Resources tab.

Addendums to the technical studies will be uploaded to this micro-site upon receipt.


Prior to submitting applications for Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and Draft Plan of Subdivision to the City of Hamilton, the development concept participated in the City’s Formal Consultation process. Through this process, the required studies and reports to facilitate a complete application were identified. The following reports have been completed and submitted to the City in support of the proposal: Survey, Concept Plan & Elevations, Planning Justification Report, Urban Design Report, Archaeological Assessment, Tree Protection Plan, Stormwater Management Report, Functional Servicing Report, Hydraulic Report, Noise Impact Study, Transportation Impact Study, Parking Analysis, and a Transportation Demand Management Report.

Copies of the reports are available for you to review.
