About The Application
The proposed rezoning of 2008 105 Street NW is from Urban Services Zone (US) to a Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).
The rezoning would allow for the construction of a multi-unit, mixed-income housing development with the following characteristics:
- 2 low-rise apartments and a mix of row housing
- Maximum of 135 residential units
- Maximum height of 14.5-16.0 m for the apartment buildings (depending on roof design) and 10.0 m for the row housing
- Underground resident parking accessed from 105 Street and limited on-site surface visitor parking
- Maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 1.10
- Minimum building setbacks of:
- 12.0 m from the north property line
- 6.0 m from the east property line (along 105 Street NW)
- 6.0 m from the south property line
- 7.5 m from the west property line
An amendment to the Keheewin Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) to change the land use designation of the site from a school/park to row housing/low-rise apartments, and the removal of the site’s Municipal Reserve designation, would also be required to facilitate the rezoning.
The site is part of the City’s Building Housing Choices initiative (Policy C583), which repurposes vacant school sites, where a school building is no longer needed, into mixed income affordable housing.
City administration has selected Capital Region Housing Corporation (CRH), an experienced non-profit housing provider who specializes in affordable housing for families, to build and operate the housing development.
The City’s sale of the site to Capital Region Housing Corporation will be conditional on approval of this proposed rezoning. The sale of the land will also likely require approval by Executive Committee.
