Planning applications received by the City in the Griesbach neighbourhood.

Proposed

5304 Admiral Girouard Street NW, 5340 Admiral Girouard Street NW, and 13703 Castle Downs Road NW

A planning application (map) has been received for properties at 5304 Admiral Girouard Street NW, 5340 Admiral Girouard Street NW, and 13703 Castle Downs Road NW. 

The application proposes to rezone the properties from an existing Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) to General Business Zone (CB2) and Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The purpose of the rezoning from Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) to General Business Zone (CB2) and Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) is to allow for a variety of commercial and office uses, with opportunities for residential mixed-use in the form of Multi-unit Housing and Live Work Units, up to a maximum height of 16 metres (4 storeys.) The proposed rezoning conforms to the approved Griesbach Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan, which designates the site for mixed-use development.


Public Hearing Date: Tuesday January 26, 2021

Reference File Number: LDA20-0263

Planner: Email Carla Semeniuk or call 780-496-1582 for more information.

Approved

13715 Castle Downs Road NW

The application proposed to amend the Griesbach Row Housing Zone (RF5g), Griesbach Low Rise Apartment Zone (RA7g) and Griesbach Low Density Residential with Garden Suites Zone (GLG), as well as the text of the Section 86 (Secondary Suites) and Section 87 (Garden Suites) of the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw 12800.

The purpose of the application is to align the Griesbach Special Area Zones with the “Missing Middle” amendments that were approved by City Council on August 29, 2019 (Bylaw 18967). Approved Bylaw 18967 allowed for single detached housing to have both secondary suites and garden suites within the Single Detached Residential Zone (RF1), Low Density Infill Zone (RF2) and Small Scale Infill Development Zone (RF3) Zones.

The applicant asked to update the GLG, RF5g and RA7g Zones to align with these recent changes to allow both secondary suites and garden suites where single detached housing is allowed within Griesbach.

503 Griesbach Parade NW

A planning application (map) has been received for a property at 503 Griesbach Parade NW. 

The application has two components. The first is a rezoning: the applicant proposes to rezone the property from the Griesbach Village Centre Zone (GVC) to a proposed new zone, the Griesbach Medium Rise Apartment Zone (RA8g).

There is also a proposed text amendment to the Griesbach Neighbourhood Area Structure Plan (NASP) because the maximum height currently allowed in the Village Centre is 4 storeys and the applicant is proposing a 6-storey building.
An amendment to the Zoning Bylaw, Section 940 is also required to allow for the new Griesbach Medium Rise Apartment Zone (RA8g) zone.


Public Engagement Session

Edmontonians were invited to a drop-in public engagement session on January 22, 2020 at Glengarry School to learn more about the proposed rezoning.

The engagement session was an opportunity to learn more about the proposal and provide feedback to the City and the applicant. Feedback will be summarized in a report for City Council for when the proposed rezoning goes to City Council Public Hearing.
