Union Park April 2022 Update

A few enquiries have come in recently asking about our progress on the Union Park Kingston proposal. It reimagines the site of the former Prison for Women as a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood for the benefit of all neighbours, Kingstonians, and the hundreds of people that will live and work there.

Since filing our applications on June 30, 2021, we have met with many neighbours and community groups, hosted two open houses, hosted one statutory public meeting, and answered many questions from our neighbours. During recent months, we have continued to work with the City of Kingston, its planning department, and our neighbours to address technical comments related to our proposal. We are working on some changes to our plans that incorporate the feedback we have received to date, and anticipate that the community at large, especially our immediate neighbours, will be pleased with these changes.

It is a complex proposal that incorporates residential condominium units, a hotel for short-term and extended stays, a senior’s retirement residence, a public art wall, a substantial community-oriented park and connecting pathway, and a proposed healing garden in collaboration with the P4W Memorial Collective. Discussions with the City have led to progress on a number of planning, architectural, traffic, heritage, and cultural matters. We are now sorting out a few last issues that remain to be resolved and are anticipating a resubmission within the coming months.
