  • Program: Urban Planning & Civil Engineering
  • Client: Bice Builders
  • Status: Completed, 2013

Butler’s Gardens is a community of 7 custom-built detached bungalows on a private drive in the historic Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake within walking distance of the library, community center and local wineries.

The project intensifi ed the residential use on a single in-fi ll lot by demolishing the existing dwelling and creating a 7-unit condominium on the property. Quartek Group providing planning and engineering services for the project to secure all planning and building approvals including: draft plan approval for the condominium, site plan, site servicing, landscape design, and negotiating the development agreement or the client. Additionally, Quartek Group provided construction review services and works with the client in acquiring clearances for return of securities.

The project represents good planning as it resulted in the intensifi cation of an existing serviced lot in the urban area of Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake. The plan of condominium option instead of a plan of subdivision allowed for a narrower road as it is a private driveway instead of a public road which reduced construction costs and allowed for more effi cient use of the property.
