Notice of Open House| February 27th, 2017 | Organised by City of Edmonton


Details of open house:

  • Date: Wednesday March 22nd 2017  at 6.30pm

The City of Edmonton invites residents to join and share their thoughts on the following application.

The application

An application has been made to rezone 8904 & 8920 – 99 Street Nw and 9922, 9924 & 9926 – 89 Avenue NW. If approved, the zoning for these lots would change from the (CNC) Neighbourhood Convenience Commercial Zone and (RA7) Low Rise Apartment Zone to a (DC2) Site Specific Development Control Provision. The proposal included:

  • 95.0 metres in height (approximately 31 storeys);
  • 240 dwellings;
  • 6.5 Floor Area Ratio;
  • Commercial uses at the ground level on the east portion facing 99 Street NW and 89 Avenue NW;
  • Townhouse style dwellings on the west portion facing 89 Avenue NW; and
  • Underground parking

An application has also been made to close a portion of the lane west of 99 Street NW to accommodate the proposed development. Traffic flow from the east-west lane to 90 Avenue NW will still be maintained. Vehicles will still be able to access the site from 89 Avenue NW, but this would be on a private lane and no longer on a City owned lane.

In addition, an application has been made to amend the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) to change current policy that does not support development of this height at this location.
