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.

10828, 10824 and 10820 71 Avenue NW

A planning application (map) has been received for properties at 10828, 10824 and 10820 71 Avenue NW. 

This application proposes to rezone the properties from the Low-Rise Apartment Zone (RA7) to the Medium-Rise Apartment Zone (RA8). The proposed RA8 Zone would allow for a 23-metre-high building (approximately 6 storeys) intended for residential uses such as multi-unit housing, lodging houses and supportive housing, as well as limited commercial opportunities at ground level, such as child care services, convenience retail stores and specialty food services.  The current RA7 Zone already allows for similar uses but with a lower maximum height of approximately 4 storeys.

There is also an associated application to amend the 109 Street Corridor Area Redevelopment Plan to remove the western property from the plan area, which limits height to 4 storeys.

This application is being initiated by the City of Edmonton and there is currently an intent to develop supportive housing at this location.
