Langstaff Drive land for sale for development

CARP – Just under 20 acres of land in Carp is up for sale with an eye for development.

Primecorp, a commercial realty brokerage, has posted for sale signs at 147 Langstaff Dr. advertising the property as a great site for development and is asking for $5.2 million.

The property highlights include 19.049 acres of vacant development land “with a proposed approved residential development plan.”

The land is close to both the West Carleton Medical Centre and across the street from Huntley Centennial Public School. The immediate neighbourhood is characterized by “upper-end single family houses on large serviced lots.”

The land is already zoned for V1 Village Residential First Density Zone.

“The subject development site is irregular in shape and is cut in to two separate sections by a large ravine with a creek running through it,” Primecorp wrote about the proposed plan for the land. “In order to service land to the north of the subject, a storm water retention facility was built in the creek bed and this in-place infrastructure will be able to be utilized by the new project proposed for the site. The plan for the proposed project was prepared by FoTenn Planning Consultants, a well-regarded firm from Ottawa.”

The proposed plan calls for three separate phases. Phase One is situated north of the ravine and lies adjacent to the West Carleton Medical Centre and includes a total of 88 units including four 12-unit buildings, townhouses, singles and semis.

Phase Two is west of the ravine and proposed 115 units – all townhouses. Phase Three is a 2.45-acre block and “planners have suggested a 150-bed retirement home of seven 12-unit buildings which would produce a total of 84 units.”

“The apartment option is the most viable,” Primecorp said. “The proposed plan could accommodate up to 287 units with all the phases fully built out. The unit mix proposed by FoTenn strikes a nice balance between low-rise apartments, retirement-oriented townhouse units and a few singles and semis.”

The proposed plan has not been presented to the City of Ottawa “however, there has been extensive background work done, and a number of studies and reports have been prepared by professionals in anticipation of moving forward with the project,” Primecorp said.
