Proposed rezoning along 108A Street NW, north of 86 Avenue NW, and at the corner of 109 Street NW and Saskatchewan Drive NW.

A planning application has been submitted to rezone land within the Garneau neighbourhood along 108A Street NW, north of 86 Avenue NW. The specific street addresses are 8630, 8632, 8634, 8638, 8642, and 8650 108A Street NW, and 8715 109 Street NW.

The applicant's name for the project is The Hive Mixed-use Tower.

About The Application

The proposed rezoning is from a Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) and the Low-Rise Apartment Zone (RA7) to the Low-Intensity Business Zone (CB1) and a new Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2).

The proposed CB1 Zone would allow for the continued use of a one-storey commercial building at the corner of 109 Street NW and Saskatchewan Drive NW currently operating as a restaurant. 

The proposed DC2 Provision would allow for a mixed-use high-rise tower along 108A Street NW, north of 86 Avenue NW, with the following characteristics:

  • A maximum height of 76 metres (approximately 22 storeys)
  • A maximum of 250 dwellings
  • A maximum Floor Area Ratio of 10.0
  • A maximum tower floor plate of 855 square meters
  • Ground level townhouse-style dwellings fronting 108A Street NW
  • A small commercial space within the second storey of the building
  • Parking provided underground, with the exception of 23 surface parking stalls located off of the lanes

In addition, an associated application has been made to amend the Garneau Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) to change current policy that does not support the development of this intensity at this location. Policy 2.1 currently directs this site as being appropriate for stacked row housing and apartment housing up to 5 storeys. The amendment proposes to redesignate this as being appropriate for a high-rise apartment.
