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.

Approved

10171 Saskatchewan Drive NW, 10318 83 Avenue NW and 8403 104 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been received for properties at 10171 Saskatchewan Drive NW, 10318 83 Avenue NW and 8403 104 Street NW.

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

The proposed new DC1 Provision would continue to retain the Ritchie Mill, at 10171 Saskatchewan Drive NW, as a municipally and provincially designated historic resource and commercial building, but allow an addition to be built off the north facade of the building. The addition would be 15 metres tall, matching the height of the main eavestrough line of the existing Ritchie Mill. The addition would add approximately 570 square metres of commercial floor area to the building, for a new total of approximately 2,820 square metres.

The existing Historical Institutional DC1 Provision applies to the Ritchie Mill, and also to the nearby Strathcona Fire Hall No. 1, at 10318 83 Avenue NW, and the Knox Metropolitan Church, at 8403 103 Street NW. In order for the Ritchie Mill to have its own zoning, the other sites need to also be rezoned to a new Historical Institutional DC1 Provision that does not include the Ritchie Mill. No changes to the other sites are proposed by this application.

An amendment to the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan is also proposed, as the existing DC1 Provision is embedded within it. The proposed amendment would remove the zoning from being embedded in the plan, but there are no proposed amendments to the policies or direction of the plan.

8101 Gateway Boulevard NW

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.

9303 98 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been made to rezone 9303 98 Street NW.

The current zoning for the property is Low-Density Infill Zone (RF2). The proposed zoning is Metropolitan Recreation Zone (A).

The purpose of the Metropolitan Recreation zone is to preserve natural areas and parkland along the river, creeks, ravines and other designated areas for active and passive recreational uses and environmental protection in conformance with Plan Edmonton and the North Saskatchewan River Valley Area Redevelopment Plan.

8904 99 Street

A planning application (map) has been received for a property at 8904 99 Street NW.
The application proposes to rezone the site from  Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) to Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The rezoning represents a second attempt to redevelop this site. The proponents have indicated that due to changing market conditions, they are longer able to pursue the previously proposed high-rise tower development that the current Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) enables.

This proposal is for a new Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) that would allow for a mid-rise mixed-use building with the following characteristics:

  • A maximum height of 34.0 m (approximately 8-10 storeys)
  • A maximum floor area ratio of 6.0
  • Between 100 and 650 square metres of commercial space at ground level
  • Up to 190 residential dwellings, including ground-oriented dwellings facing 89 Avenue NW and potentially 99 Street NW

An amendment to the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan is only proposed to update the building description in the already existing policy exemptions for this site.

Thank Your for Your Feedback

Edmontonians were invited to share their feedback on this proposed rezoning and plan amendment.

Rezoning of properties at 9009 and 9013 99 Street NW and 9854 and 9860 90 Avenue NW

This application has been revised. The original submission was for a 6-storey building with residential facing 99 Street, and included the property at 9015 99 Street. 

The revised planning application (map) has been approved for properties at 9009 and 9013 99 Street NW and 9854 and 9860 90 Avenue NW. 

The application proposes to rezone the properties from Medium-Rise Apartment Zone (RA8) to Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The revised draft DC2 proposal is for a 7-storey mixed use building with an eighth storey indoor/outdoor rooftop amenity area. The proposed building would allow a maximum of 60 residential units and commercial at ground level facing 99 Street with both surface and underground parking accessed from the lane.

An amendment to the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) would also be required to enable the proposed rezoning. The proposed amendment would rename the High-Rise Apartment Area of the plan the Mid/High-Rise Apartment Area and redesignate this site from being in the Walk-Up Apartment Area to being in the Mid/High-Rise Apartment Area.

8301 99 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been received for the rezoning of a property at  8301 99 Street NW. The proposed zoning is for a new Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) that is similar to the existing DC2 Provision, but with the following changes:

  • Maximum number of dwellings increased from 22 to 29
  • Floor Area Ratio increased from 3.0 to 3.2
  • Added requirement for a minimum amount of commercial floor area of 90 sq. m
  • Minor adjustments to setbacks of the building from lot lines
  • Reduction/removal of some stepbacks of building facades.

The maximum building height of 23.0 m has not been changed.

An associated application has also been made to amend the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan to remove the requirement for the building to have a stepback above the third storey, and instead use building articulations and colour contrast to reduce the perceived building mass of a six-storey building on this site, and add visual interest to the streetscape.

Strathcona Rezoning and Plan Amendment

A planning application (map) has been approved to add Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries as an allowable use to the Historical Commercial Direct Control Provision (DC1).  

This is a new use for inclusion in the Zoning Bylaw and is approved by City Council. The previous draft definition of this use was:

Breweries, Wineries and Distilleries​ means the manufacturing of beer, wine, spirits or other alcoholic beverages. This use may include the sale of alcoholic beverages to the public for consumption within the premises and the retail sales of alcoholic beverages manufactured within the premises for consumption off-site.  

Accessory activities may include the preparation and sale of food, and storage, packaging, bottling, canning and shipping of products manufactured within the premises. 

This use may have a private non-sale hospitality area where products manufactured within the premises are provided to private groups for tasting and sampling.

The rationale for adding this use to the existing DC1 Provision was to create additional opportunities for microbreweries, distilleries and wineries in Edmonton’s commercial and industrial zones.  

This application was reviewed by City administration to determine the proposal’s compatibility with the surrounding neighbourhood. After the review was finished, a recommendation was made to City Council. 

The proposal and recommendation was heard at a City Council Public Hearing. The public were notified of the Public Hearing date and time at least 21 days in advance.
