770 Somerset St Development Transportation Impact Assessment (Ottawa, ON)


CastleGlenn Consultants Inc. was retained by DCR Phoenix Development Corp. Ltd. to provide an assessment of the traffic issues concerning the re-development of the surface parking lot located on the south-east quadrant of the Somerset St / Lebreton St intersection. It was understood that the land is intended to be developed to accommodate a 75-unit apartment building (5 floors at 15 units-per-floor), a supermarket (12,000 SF) located at the ground floor of the building and a 2,000 SF restaurant below the supermarket. The preliminary site plan envisions one full movement access off Lebreton St that provides access to a total of 122 underground parking stalls. The Traffic Impact Brief (TIB) addressed existing traffic operations via a qualitative assessment. In addition issues related to heavy vehicle access, garbage truck and emergency vehicle access were addressed.
