ABOUT THE PROJECT

In September 2016, City Council approved the funding and development of new single detached homes on eight City-owned properties adjacent to 16 Avenue N.W. in Rosedale. The development is expected to provide up to 16 affordable homes for Calgarians. The design-build team has been selected, and we are now entering the design phase of the project. For additional information see the project page.


PROVIDE YOUR INPUT

We invite you to provide input into the design process and share ideas directly with the design-build team by participating in one of two community sessions or in online engagement below. Information regarding the in-person sessions can be found in Key Dates to the right.


Please click on each tab below to see images and answer questions about built form, home configurations and street edge (front) in Rosedale and on the subject streets.


Street Edge (Front)

The first discussion centres around the street and what kind of street you live on. The drawings provided show the various elements that go into the creation of a street and help to contribute to the character of a street. Items like mature trees, the width of sidewalks, and how far the homes are from the street all help to define what the street is like.

Please review these images about street edge (front) in Rosedale and on the subject streets to answer the questions below. To go to the next image, click the arrow on the right-hand side of the image.

What types of street edge (front) elements are important to you in Rosedale?


Thinking about the individual streets - what are the street edge (front) elements that fit in with these streets?

Built Form

Following the first discussion, we now look at the buildings along the street. The type of homes that border the street greatly influence the character of a community. We now ask that you tell us what kind of homes define your street, what are the key characteristics of the buildings that contribute to that character.

What is it about the type of buildings that occur in Rosedale that needs to be considered for the new homes?


Thinking about the individual streets - are there any elements of the buildings that help create the character of the streets?

Home Configurations

We would now like to illustrate two strategies for the new homes to be located on the project sites. A linear option shows how the homes could be located side by side on the sites, providing a longer and lower building solution. The stacked option illustrates a version where one home is located above the other, providing a two storey option.

What are the challenges about each configuration in relation to the surrounding area? Are there any comments you have around the shadowing implications of each configuration?
