Waterloo Living 3 Inc. has submitted an application to demolish the existing building on the properties known municipally as 260, 262, 264 Regina Street North (see Location Map). The subject lands contain two (2) four unit apartment buildings and one (1) single detached dwelling and will be legally consolidated to form on single parcel of land.

The subject property is located within the Area of Demolition Control as outlined in By-law No. 86-122 and therefore the dwellings may only be demolished with Council's approval.

- the proposed redevelopment is in keeping with the Official Plan;
- the proposed redevelopment is in keeping with the Demolition Control By-law 86-122;
- the proposed redevelopment provides an intensification opportunity in an area planned for high density redevelopment; and
