Planning applications received by the City in the Downtown neighbourhood.

Proposed

10301 104 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been received for a property at 10301 104 Street NW.

The application proposes to rezone the property from the Heritage Area Zone (HA) to the Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) zone. 

The proposed DC1 Provision would allow for a mixed-use tower with the following key characteristics:

  • A maximum tower height of 160 metres (approximately 40 - 45 storeys), with the lower 18 metres (approximately 4-5 storeys) being the base structure
  • A maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 16.0
  • A maximum tower floor plate of 850 square metres

The existing Horne & Pitfield building on this site has been identified for its historical significance, however it has never been protected from demolition through designation under the provisions of the Historical Resources Act. City Administration does not have the authority to forcibly designate a building against a landowner’s wishes. City Council will be made aware of its historical significance prior to making a decision on this application. The proposed DC1 Provision requires the reassembly and incorporation of the existing western facade of the building into the proposed tower podium.

Quarters Downtown Rezoning and Plan Amendment

This approved planning application (map) is for an amendment to the Quarters Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan to add breweries, wineries and distilleries as an allowable use.

Approved Amendment

A rezoning application has been approved to add breweries, wineries and distilleries as a use to multiple Direct Development Control Provisions (DC1) in The Quarters. This is a new use for inclusion in the Zoning Bylaw approved by City Council.

Previous Draft Use Definition

The previous draft definition of this use was:

Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries​ means the manufacturing of beer, wine, spirits or other alcoholic beverages. This use may include the sale of alcoholic beverages to the public for consumption within the premises and the retail sales of alcoholic beverages manufactured within the premises for consumption off-site. Accessory activities may include the preparation and sale of food, and storage, packaging, bottling, canning and shipping of products manufactured within the premises. This use may have a private non-sale hospitality area where products manufactured within the premises are provided to private groups for tasting and sampling.

The rationale for adding this use to the existing DC1 provisions was to create additional opportunities for microbreweries, distilleries and wineries in Edmonton’s commercial and industrial zones.

Completed Steps

This application was reviewed by City administration to determine the proposal’s compatibility with the surrounding neighbourhood. Following the review, a recommendation was made to City Council.

The proposal and recommendation was heard at a City Council Public Hearing. The public were notified of the Public Hearing date and time at least 21 days in advance.
