Planning applications received by the City in the Strathcona neighbourhood.

Proposed

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.

8207 105 Street NW

A planning application has been received to rezone 8207 105 Street NW. The applicant’s project name for the proposal is The Baron.

The proposed rezoning is from the Historical Commercial (DC1) Direct Development Control Provision to a Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The purpose of the existing DC1 Provision is to help preserve buildings which are of historic significance, and to ensure that future renovation and redevelopment of surrounding buildings result in developments which are compatible in architectural and built form with the historic buildings of the area. 

The existing building on the property, built in 1909 and known as the Archibald Block, is on the Inventory of Historic Resources in Edmonton. It would be demolished to allow for the proposed new building, if the rezoning is approved.

The purpose of the proposed DC2 Provision (9.5MB) is to accommodate a development with commercial and residential uses that provides for an active and inviting pedestrian-oriented streetscape fronting onto 105 Street NW and 82 Avenue NW.

It would allow for a mid-rise mixed use building with the following characteristics:

  • A maximum height of 33.0 m (approximately 9 - 11 storeys)
  • A maximum floor area ratio of 5.0
  • Up to 473 square metres of commercial space at ground level 
  • Up to 65 residential dwellings

There is an associated application to amend the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan, which currently does not allow a building of this scale within the Heritage Character District of the Whyte Avenue Commercial Area.

Key characteristics of the proposed DC2 provisions include:

  • A maximum Floor Area Ratio of 3.0 (no change proposed) 
  • Up to 65 residential dwellings (previously 60 residential dwellings)
