The idea of a Bridgehead coffee shop is brewing in north Kanata.

The coffee company is seeking to construct a standalone one-storey building on the south end of the existing Kanata Mews lot, across from the Metro grocery store.

The Kanata Mews development currently has two, two-storey buildings in its complex and houses a pharmacy, home building store, a pub and a crepes and café shop, among others. 

Bridgehead submitted a site plan application to the city on Oct. 4 for a 370 square-metre, three unit building with an outdoor patio area.

“The exterior design of the building will be inspired by Bridgehead’s standard elevations with features including prefinished charcoal and dark cherry panels, slim-line canopies and high windows,” says the proposal summary.

The coffee company will be the prime tenant; no other business names have been put forward for the two rental units.

Access to the site will remain through the existing entrances on March Road and Steacie Drive.

The city’s target date for a decision on the application is Nov. 19. Comments will be accepted until Nov. 1 and can be submitted by email to john.bernier@ottawa.ca or phone 613-580-2424 ext. 21576. More information on the proposal is available online at Ottawa.ca/devapps.
