Proposed rezoning on the south side of University Avenue NW, between 113 Street NW and 114 Street NW, to allow for a mid-rise tower.

A planning application has been received to rezone properties located at 11323, 11325, 11329, 11333 and 11335 University Avenue NW in the McKernan neighbourhood. The applicant's project name is McKernan Crossing.

About The Application

The proposed rezoning is from Small Scale Infill Development Zone (RF3) to a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The proposed zoning is for a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) to allow development of a 30.0 metre (approximately 9 storeys) mid-rise apartment building. The proposal includes: 

  • Up to 210 residential dwellings
  • Floor Area Ratio of 5.35
  • Rooftop canopy feature above the building atrium (excluded from the total height)
  • Underground parking accessible from the lane

In addition, an associated application has been made to amend current policies of the McKernan-Belgravia Station Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) which do not support the development of this intensity at this location.

The McKernan-Belgravia Station ARP Guiding Principles and Policies 4.4.1(2) and 4.4.7(1) direct development within the University Avenue Corridor to provide for a maximum of 6 storeys in height along University Avenue between 113 Street and 115 Street. These guiding principles, policies and their associated maps are proposed to be amended to exclude the subject properties from the 6-storey maximum threshold for this portion of the University Avenue Corridor.
