The development of Tall Building Design Guidelines was identified as a high priority in the Urban Design Framework. The guidelines, currently in draft, have since served as a valuable tool to help develop other types of guidelines within an emerging framework of an Urban Design Manual.
Administration has worked with a Working Group of design and development community representatives on the development of Tall Building Guidelines since 2018. The result is a set of draft design guidelines for the planning and design of tall buildings in Edmonton.
Next, Administration identified the need for an Urban Design Manual that features a complete set of design guidelines, including tall buildings, that addresses all aspects of urban design in Edmonton and aligns with The City Plan.
