The City of Calgary has received an application to redesignate (rezone) an area of land located in the community of Glendale. The applicant is seeking to change the designation from R-C1, which is a residential designation primarily used for single-detached homes, to M-H1, which is a multi-residential designation for an apartment building that may include commercial storefronts. More information about the application, which was submitted by Carlisle Group, can be found at calgary.ca/pdmap/LOC2017-0210.

Located on 17 Avenue S.W., the application would allow for a multi-residential building that may have commercial storefronts. The proposed designation could accommodate a building with a maximum height of 18 metres (6 storeys), which would be an increase of the current allowed height of 10 metres. A maximum of 110 units is proposed, an increase from the current maximum of five units.

Properties covered by this application include:

  • 4919 17 Avenue S.W.
  • 4923 17 Avenue S.W.
  • 4927 17 Avenue S.W.
  • 4931 17 Avenue S.W.
  • 4935 17 Avenue S.W.
