A planning application (map) has been approved for a property at 8101 Gateway Boulevard NW.
The application proposed to rezone the site from an existing Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) to a new Direct Development Control Provision (DC1).
The rezoning site currently contains the historic Canadian Pacific Railway Station, as well as a concrete covered piece of land north of the station and a surface parking lot to the south. The existing station building is a designated historic resource at the municipal and provincial level and is not proposed to be demolished or altered by this application.
The proposed DC1 rezoning would allow for a new approximately 3-storey commercial building to be constructed on the concrete pad north of the existing station building and an approximately 7-storey residential building with up to 125 dwellings to be built to the south, on the land that currently contains surface parking.
There is an associated application to amend the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan, which currently does not allow for the 7-storey building at the proposed location.
