Approved rezoning, plan amendment and partial lane closure in Strathcona at 8904 and 8920 99 Street NW and 9922, 9924 and 9926 89 Avenue.
A revised planning application has been approved to rezone the Bateman Lands on 99 Street in the Strathcona neighbourhood, which includes a plan amendment and partial lane closure. The revised application was submitted as a result of receiving information from the City's technical review and public consultation.
Two objectives and one policy of the Strathcona ARP are also proposed to be amended as they currently do not allow for this scale of development at this location. These amendments would only affect this site and not anywhere else in the neighbourhood.
Three maps and two figures within the Strathcona ARP would also be amended to accurately portray the rezoning, if approved.
2. Road Closure
The application proposes to legally close the north-south public lane located between the two towers from 89 Avenue running north to where it intersects with the east-west lane. Traffic flow on the east-west lane (located between 89 Avenue and 90 Avenue) will be maintained. Vehicles will still be able to access the site from 89 Avenue, but this would be on a private lane and no longer on a City-owned lane.
The proposal is for two high-rise residential towers with both commercial uses and townhouse style units at the ground level.
