Planning applications received by the City in the Queen Alexandra neighbourhood.

Proposed

10319 and 10329 82 Avenue NW and land between Gateway Boulevard NW and 105 Street NW and between 81 Avenue NW and 83 Avenue NW

planning application (map) has been received for properties at 10319 and 10329 82 Avenue NW and land between Gateway Boulevard NW and 105 Street NW and between 81 Avenue NW and 83 Avenue NW.

The application proposes to rezone the properties and area from an existing Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) to a revised Direct Development Control Provision (DC1).

The proposal is for a  revised DC1 Provision that is nearly identical to the existing one, except for one change to how public space is calculated throughout, as well as some more substantial changes for the Commercial Hotel (10329 82 Avenue NW) and the outdoor space east of the hotel (10319 82 Avenue NW).

For all land subject to the DC1 Provision, exterior patio/deck space would no longer count towards public space, provided the exterior patio/deck space does not exceed 50% of the interior public space of the establishment.

Through a new sub area in the DC1 Provision for the Commercial Hotel and its associated outdoor space, exceptions are proposed to the current regulations as follows:

  • The maximum amount of public space is proposed to increase from 240 square metres to 855 square metres
  • A maximum of 320 square metres of public space can be exterior patio/deck space, except no exterior patio/deck public space shall function as a nightclub use

The new sub area would also clarify that no size restriction shall apply to special events and an exception is proposed to signage regulations to allow for a “marquee” style sign that is normally not allowed in the historic core.

An associated application to the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan is also proposed to amend one map to show the proposed new DC1 Sub Area and also to remove the Historical Commercial (DC1) Direct Development Control Provision from the plan.

While it used to be standard practice to include DC1 Provisions within statutory plans, it is now considered more appropriate to simply have these provisions exist in the Zoning Bylaw and not be duplicated within a plan. No changes are proposed with regard to policies or the direction of the Area Redevelopment Plan.

10416 70 Avenue NW, 10480 73 Avenue NW, 7004 104 Street NW, and 7015 105 Street NW

planning application (map) has been received for properties at 10416 70 Avenue NW, 10480 73 Avenue NW, 7004 104 Street NW, and 7015 105 Street NW.

The application proposes to rezone the properties from the Small-Scale Infill Development Zone (RF3) and Urban Services Zone (US) to the Public Parks Zone (AP).

The purpose of the Public Parks Zone (AP) is to provide an area of public land for active and passive recreational uses and allow for an opportunity for public schools.

There is an associated lot consolidation and road closure to enable the creation of one parcel in order to accommodate the construction of a new community recreation facility.

The proposed road closure is for portions of lane right-of-way that are not functioning as lanes and are currently part of a grass field. No changes to vehicle access or movements are proposed.

The proposed zoning is for a new Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) that is almost identical to the existing one but with added regulations that exempt the properties along Whyte (82) Avenue from the following regulations in the Zoning Bylaw:

  1. Regulations that require a 500-metre separation distance between different Liquor Stores
  2. Regulations that require a 100-metre separation distance between a Liquor Store and community or recreation activities such as community league buildings and children’s playgrounds or play areas

If approved, Liquor Stores within this DC1 Provision along Whyte Avenue could be within 500 meters of other Liquor Stores or within 100 metres of community or recreation activities and such a location shall not require the Development Officer to grant a variance.
