Key Project Documents


At the January 2014 City Council work session on the proposed FY 2015 interdepartmental planning work program, staff indicated that the owner of Oakville Triangle would like to redevelop their 13 acre (approximate) property. The owner, an entity owned by The Blackstone Group, has agreed to fund consultant services and staffing so that the City can begin planning and process the associated applications beginning in FY 2014. The scope of the planning effort and the Oakville Triangle/Route 1 Corridor Plan Boundary includes Oakville Triangle and adjacent properties as well as the Route 1 corridor north and south of the site. Staff assembled background information on the planning area to assist members of the community as the process got underway. The City Council appointed Advisory Group and community will assist in developing Plan principles for the site regarding potential land uses, open space, sustainability, transportation and connectivity, and potential community benefits, among other topics. The corridor study will review features such as streetscaping, undergrounding of utilities, and potential redevelopment sites along the western portion of Route 1. The corridor study will help to establish a unified streetscape for Route 1 and an integrated approach to potential redevelopment along Route 1.

Multimodal Transportation Study

The initial results of the Multimodal Transportation Study for the Oakville Triangle and Route 1 Corridor Planning Study Area was presented to the Advisory Group at the October Advisory Group and Community Meeting 7. The transportation study analyzes the impacts of the redevelopment of parcels along the west side of Route 1, between Lynhaven Drive and just south of East Bellefonte Avenue. The study analyzes existing and future transportation conditions of Route 1 and affected neighborhood streets in the context of a redeveloped Oakville Triangle and Route 1 Corridor Planning Study area. The study was performed concurrently with the land use plan development effort to make recommendations for the future multimodal transportation network.

The next phase of the analysis is taking a more in-depth look at the operations of the Metroway and transit in the corridor, and we will be coming back to the Advisory Group with those findings later in the spring. The findings and transportation recommendations will be the basis of recommendations for the Plan.
