Proposed rezoning and plan amendments for the St. John’s School Site at 10231 120 Street NW and a portion of Oliver Park at 10326 118 Street NW.

The Application Proposal

This application was refused by City Council at the April 29, 2019 Public Hearing

A planning application is being processed for rezoning and amendments to the Oliver Area Redevelopment Plan and the 104 Avenue Corridor Area Redevelopment Plan for:

  • the northeast corner of 104 Avenue NW and 118 Street NW to allow for a high-rise residential tower with townhouse style units facing 118 Street NW
  • the site of the former St. John’s School, 10231 120 Street NW, to create a new city park

The rezoning would change the former St. John’s School from Urban Services (US) to Public Parks Zone (AP). The northeast corner of 104 Avenue NW and 118 Street NW, currently part of Oliver Park, would be rezoned from Public Parks Zone (AP) to Site Specific Development Control (DC2) zone.

Site Details

A proposed park would be established on the east side of 120 Street between 102 Avenue and 103 Avenue, on the site of the former St. John’s School.

The proposed development would be in the north east corner of the existing Oliver Park on 118 Street NW and 104 Avenue NW.

The rezoning map shows the locations and proposed zoning changes for the sites.

Key Features

The proposed development would allow for a high-rise residential building which generally complies with the Site Specific Development Direct Development Control (DC1)  for Area 2 of the 104 Street Corridor Area Redevelopment Plan.

This would permit a building approximately 26 storeys in height stepping down to 10 storeys fronting onto 118 Street with townhouse style units at street level. Other features include:

  • Floor Area of Ratio 7.0
  • Maximum Height of 80.0 metres
  • Underground parking accessed from 118 Street

  • Construction of a tree-lined boulevard along 118 Street

For a complete list of regulations and uses, please see the Draft DC2 Provision.

Project Updates

The City of Edmonton accepted the original application to rezone the St. John’s School site to accommodate a 12-storey residential building on March 30, 2017.

Following public engagement and notification activities, the application was modified to swap the St. John’s site for an equal area of Oliver Park to preserve Peace Garden Park and direct density to the 104 Street Corridor.
