ABOUT THE PROJECT

In May 2017, a Land Use Amendment Application was submitted for a site located in Eau Claire at 727 1 Avenue S.W. by S2 Architecture on behalf of LaCaille Group.

The Land Use Amendment application is to redesignate the property from Direct Control (DC) to Centre City Multi-Residential High Rise District (DC/CC-MH) to allow for an increase in density to accommodate a multi-residential development with additional discretionary uses including a hotel and/or a community recreation facility. The application would require amendments to the Eau Claire Area Redevelopment Plan.

For more information see the Planning & Development map (File #LOC2017-0146).



PROVIDE YOUR INPUT

This feedback opportunity is now closed. Thank you for your input. A summary of the feedback received will be posted here in a What We Heard Report.


The project team was looking for input regarding the application and we wanted to have a conversation around density, amenities and the overall appropriateness of the proposed land use at this particular site. For additional information please see the open house boards.

Your input will be used to help inform the project team's recommendation to Council.


The applicant is requesting:

  • an increase in height from approximately 10 storeys to 17 storeys
  • an increase in total floor area from 9,300 m² to 21,200 m²


This proposal would allow for a mixed-use site and may include a variety of uses and amenities. Part of the development may be a hotel.


The applicant has asked for the ability to gain extra density in exchange for providing certain amenities. Please see the list below and let us know which amenities are most important to you and why?

  • Arts space
  • Affordable housing units
  • Bicycle service station
  • Heritage building preservation
  • Indoor community space
  • Publicly-accessible outdoor space

  • Other (please specify)


The survey form is now closed. Thanks for your contributions.
