A revised planning application was received for land at 9918 111 Street NW and 9922 111 Street NW, on sites currently occupied by two single detached houses, one of which has been converted to a commercial building.
This application was approved on August 20, 2018. Bylaws 18508, 1850 and 18510 were approved by City Council.
About the Proposal
