ABOUT THE PROJECT
In November 2017, the applicant submitted a revised application based on The City's technical feedback and the comments captured in the What We Heard Report. To review the original application, please click the Initial Application tab above. The revised application seeks to change the land use designation from R-C1, which is a residential designation used for single-detached homes, to M-C2, which allows for a multi-residential apartment building with no commercial storefronts.
The proposed designation could accommodate a building with a maximum height of anywhere from 11 metres to 16 metres (approximately 3 to 5 storeys), which would be an increase of the current allowed height of 10 metres. The range in maximum height is due to Land Use Bylaw rules that would require a building’s height to transition from the lowest height (adjacent to the existing shared R-C1 property line) to the highest possible height (away from the shared property line). A maximum of approximately 70 units is proposed, an increase from the current maximum of five units.
More information about both the initial and revised application, which were submitted by Carlisle Group, can be found on the Planning & Development Map (LOC2017-0210).
In July 2017, The City of Calgary received an application to redesignate (rezone) an area of land located in the community of Glendale. The applicant sought to change the designation from R-C1, which is a residential designation primarily used for single-detached homes, to M-H1, which would allow for a multi-residential apartment building that may have included commercial storefronts. The proposed designation would have accommodated a building with a maximum height of 18 metres (6 storeys), which would have increased the current allowed height of 10 metres. A maximum of approximately 110 units were proposed, an increase from the current maximum of five units.
In September, Administration provided the applicant with its comments on the application, including the results of the technical review and feedback submitted from the public during the online survey conducted in mid-September.
The application is scheduled to be presented to Calgary Planning Commission (CPC) on March 8, 2018, with Administration's recommendation of approval. CPC is not the approving authority; however, it can either request further changes to the application or forward the report and their recommendation to City Council. Council will then hold a Public Hearing and make the final decision on the application. The Council date is tentatively set for May 7, 2018. You will have the opportunity to participate at the Public Hearing of Council. For more information, please visit calgary.ca/council.
