Owen Sound City Council has approved a site plan application to permit the construction of 6 4-storey purpose built multi-unit residential buildings totalling 224-units, as well as a common amenity building, parking area, landscaping, and sidewalk system at 1144 1st Avenue West.

The development proposal comes from Hansa Financial & Property Management Inc.

The property is the location of the former BCK Foundry where propellors were cast for Canadian-built ships until its closure in 1996. The factory buildings were removed by the early 2000’s, and the 8 acre property has been vacant since.

The site is a former brownfield with fully-serviced utilities, access to public transit, and in walking distance of the amenities in the City’s River District.

More information on this project and others can be found on the City website at
