Stop the The Development of Downtown Burlington

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!


Last week, the City of Burlington Council voted 6 -1 in favour of building a SECOND condominium building on Brant St. and James St. 

Reserve Properties Ltd. has submitted a 24-storey development application for a piece of property spanning 401, 403, 405, 409, 411 and 413 Brant St., 444, 448 and 450 John St., and 2002 and 2012 James St.

A plan for a 23-storey highrise tower, adjacent to the property, on Brant Street, was approved by council in November 2017. One of this city's most iconic heritage buildings, Kelly’s Bake Shoppe, is located at 401 Brant St.

 The shoppe brings in about 12,000 people to the Burlington downtown core. It is so much more than just a bake shoppe, it is a place that connects people from all over the world and allows them to escape if just for a moment to a place they feel at home (because it's allergy friendly).

If this plan goes through, Kelly's Bake Shoppe will not be what it once was, and neither will the City of Burlington. 

The final decision (by Council) will be at the public Council Meeting Monday, July 16th at 6:30pm at Burlington City Hall.

Goal: 2,000 Signatures (let's get more!)
