Sun Life sells Westmount Place for $77.8 million

This seems like a pretty significant development. They are talking about putting in 600 units of apartments on the property. Sun Life will maintain their lease on the old mall/office space until at least 2026, so it remains to be seen what happens with that.

Quote:Most important for Killam, the site has 88,000 square feet of land on the Erb Street side of the property that could be developed with buildings containing up to 600 new apartments.

There we go. The entire hillside from Erb is screaming to be developed - parking can go below grade, residential above. Huge potential here.

I can only imagine the nightmare that will be parking once T&T opens....

For comparisons sake, what does 600 units of apartments look like. I also assume that 600 single-bedroom apartments would be different in volume to 600 multi-bedroom apartments.

Realistically 600 apartments means at least three towers, given (even recent) K-W tower heights.

The article does say "up to" so larger apartments might reduce the number of apartments.

Charlie West is 300 units, and at 31 floors one of the taller buildings planned for KW. 200 units seems to be a more typical size around here. That size includes a mix of one/two bedroom units, some with dens.

Funny how they’ve labelled Erb Street incorrectly in the PDF

I’m also interested to note that the red border doesn’t reach all the way to Erb. Did somebody just draw a line around the parking lot, or is the property along Erb actually owned by somebody else?
