Stadium Station Transit Oriented Development Project
Since 2008, the City has been undertaking a new generation of Transit Oriented Development (TOD) planning that will move the Stadium LRT station area forward in exciting new directions.
The City is currently in discussion with a developer in the area to partner to build a new main street across the LRT tracks.
The main street will create a gateway through to Jasper Avenue, connecting new and existing housing with the LRT, Commonwealth Stadium, Community Recreation Centre, and the river valley.
The new infill development will revitalize the neighbourhood and increase vibrancy and safety within the framework of a new overall plan for the Stadium area currently under preparation.
The City is taking a collaborative approach with the development industry to facilitate development that strongly aligns with the City’s vision and policies.
Transit oriented development at Stadium Station will make better use of existing infrastructure, achieve a variety of City goals and, best of all, be very attractive to future residents. This is a great opportunity for the City to become more sustainable.
By re-imagining an area of underutilized industrial land next to LRT, we can create a smart, walkable design that makes vital connections for the community.
Reports summarizing the planning initiative have been reviewed by City Council's Executive Committee.
At the , the Executive Committee directed Administration to enter into negotiation for cost sharing the new main street proposed for the area, to prepare an updated Station Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) for future consideration at a City Council Public Hearing.
At the August 22, 2012 meeting (item 6.2), the Executive Committee discussed and tabled a variety of options for transit oriented development in the area.
Existing Conditions: south end of Park and Ride Lot and Commonwealth Stadium
Possible Future Conditions: new pedestrian and cyclist friendly street
About Transit Oriented Development
Transit oriented development (TOD) is urban development that is planned and integrated with an LRT station at its core. In a TOD, housing, shopping, and employment are concentrated in a walkable and bikeable community within 400 metres – a five-minute walk in any direction – of the transit station.
What is an Area Redevelopment Plan?
An Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) is a statutory planning document for mature neighbourhoods. The Stadium Station ARP is a tool that will help guide growth and change around the LRT station over the next 15-20 years.
As the Stadium Station ARP is prepared for Public Hearing, there will be opportunities for the public to provide input into the planning process. This page will be updated with information regarding community participation as it becomes available.
