Key Features of the Rezoning and Plan Amendment
The pre-application submission includes a site Vision.
“The subject lands are currently underutilized as they are either vacant or developed with surface parking. Recognizing the location of the lands within the North Edge, its proximity to Downtown Edmonton, the LRT network, and to Rogers Place, it is important to look a little bit out of the boundaries of our lands to ensure that the area is redeveloped more cohesively.
The vision for the area is to redevelop the lands to create a mixed use urban village with more of a focus on residential development to complement the arena and entertainment district to the south. The residential development will be developed in the form of high rise buildings. Commercial streets will be identified and developed into the base of residential with the opportunity for retail and office space.
Private and public open space will be integrated into the development to provide active and passive space for both the residents and the community.”
