Motion To: That the Built Heritage Sub-Committee recommend that Planning Committee recommend that Council: 1. Approve the application to alter the Château Laurier, 1 Rideau Street, a property designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act, based on plans received on May 9 and 30, 2018, on the condition that staff be directed to work with the applicant to make the proposed addition more visually compatible with the existing Chateau Laurier, prior to site plan approval, by: a. meaningfully increasing the use of Indiana limestone cladding on the building exterior to reduce its contrast and enhance its bond with the existing building; b. modifying the addition by sculpting, recessing, and breaking up the unrelieved uniformity of the north façade using elements and forms that are specifically drawn from, and relate to, the existing Chateau Laurier’s rich palette of forms; c. altering the architectural expression on the north, west and east facades to introduce fenestration pattern
