Zoning requirements for each of the districts in The Quarters Downtown.
Five distinct districts or precincts make up The Quarters Downtown. There are 4 “quarters,” each having their own unique character and design; at the centre will be a pedestrian-oriented street known as The Armature.
This district is a central focus for the entire area, planned as a pedestrian-oriented street stretching 4.5 city blocks (along 96 Street from 103A Avenue to Jasper Avenue). It will include mid-rise, mixed-use residential development fronting the park.
This quarter is an extension of the downtown and the arts district. It will accommodate civic and provincial institutions mixed with medium- and high-density residential development.
This quarter is named for the location of Edmonton’s original downtown. It recognizes the importance of preserving buildings having historic significance, with any new development complementing the historic surroundings.
This quarter is a continuation of the residential neighbourhood to the north. It will contain smaller-scale buildings and encourage density suitable to the residential character of the surrounding neighbourhoods.
Five Corners Quarter
This quarter is named after the 5 corners on the intersection at 95 Street and Jasper Avenue. It will feature higher-density residential and taller buildings.
