10103 and 10115 to 10150 81 Avenue NW, 8015, 8109 and 8128 102 Street NW

Referred back to City administration.

planning application (map) has been received for properties at 10103 and 10115 to 10150 81 Avenue NW, and 8015, 8109 and 8128 102 Street NW.

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

This rezoning is to update the existing Historic West Ritchie Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) to allow for more business opportunities such as convenience retail stores, breweries, wineries and distilleries, cannabis retail sales, markets, and special events. There are no proposed changes to the allowed scale of buildings (approximately 4 storeys) or current special design regulations such as historic false façades.

The proposed DC1 zoning also retains the requirement to open up the 81 Avenue NW view corridor towards the historic Canadian Pacific Railway Station, should redevelopment occur on the site west of 102 Street NW.

The Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) is also proposed to be amended by removing the DC1 provision from the plan, with the DC1 Provision to be maintained within the Edmonton Zoning Bylaw instead based on current standards. Otherwise, no changes are proposed with regards to policies or the direction of the ARP.

9923 76 Avenue NW

planning application (map) has been received for a property at 9923 76 Avenue NW.

The application proposes to rezone the property from a Direct Control Provision (DC2) to the Industrial Business Zone (IB).

The proposed Industrial Business Zone (IB) zoning would allow for the continued use of the existing building but with an updated list of uses, including breweries, wineries and distilleries. The existing Direct Control Provision (DC2.874) was based on the IB and Medium Industrial Zones (IM) and was used in 2014 to incorporate a Risk Management Plan (RMP) to deal with environmental contamination that was present on the site at the time. Environmental Planning has now confirmed that there are no risks remaining on the site.

10054 79 Avenue NW

The proposed DC2 will also update the building’s elevation drawings, and other as-built details found on the existing development site.

9302 75 Avenue NW and 6750 88 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been received for properties at 9302 75 Avenue NW and 6750 88 Street NW.

The application has two components: a rezoning and a plan amendment.
The current zoning is Metropolitan Recreation Zone (A). The proposed zoning is for Small Scale Infill Development Zone (RF3) to allow for small-scale residential infill development in the form of Multi-unit Housing, or Row Housing, among other uses.
The stated intent of the zoning is to rezone a portion of a residential lot that is currently split-zoned, as well as an adjacent 0.012 ha parcel of land.

There is an associated plan amendment to the North Saskatchewan River Valley Area Redevelopment Plan, which would remove a parcel of land adjacent to the residential lot from the plan, pending a land sale of the 0.012 ha parcel of surplus land.
