proposed rezoning (map)
is from two existing Direct Development Control Provisions (DC1) (Areas 1 and 5 - Precinct C of the Central McDougall/Queen Mary Park Area Redevelopment Plan) to a new Special Area Zone called the Central McDougall Urban Village Zone (CMUV), and the Public Parks Zone (AP). A portion of the existing DC1 Provision (Area 5 - Precinct C) would remain on the north edge of the rezoning area.
The proposed rezoning would allow for the development of a high-density, mixed-use urban village containing a maximum of 2,500 new residential units, retail and commercial space, as well as a new public park of at least 2,000 square metres. Development of the area would happen over many years and include a variety of buildings, with maximum allowable heights of between 26 and 90 metres (approximately 6 to 25 storeys) and a maximum overall floor area ratio of 10.0.
submission to the Edmonton Design Committee (7.62 MB)
contains detailed text and visual explanations of the proposed zone. The Edmonton Design Committee reviewed this submission on March 15, 2022, and provided a
letter of support
for this application while also providing recommendations for improvement.
There is an opportunity for public feedback to help inform the regulations (building height, setbacks from property lines, and other details) and allowable uses (types of businesses and homes) in the new proposed new Central McDougall Urban Village Special Area Zone (CMUV).
However, the applicant is not required to provide detailed building designs at the rezoning stage. These detailed designs will be determined at the development and building permit stage, should the rezoning be approved by Council.
