On March 24, 2017, Gravity Architecture submitted an application on behalf of Habitat for Humanity to redesignation this property from Special Purpose – Future Urban Development (S-FUD) District to Multi-Residential – Contextual Low Profile District (M-C1d110) District to allow for redevelopment of the site to multi-residential buildings (e.g. townhouses or low-rise apartments). The property is located at 84 Silvercreek Crescent NW in the community of Silver Springs and is adjacent to Nose Hill Drive NW.

Following the initial submission, Gravity Architecture revised their application to include a portion of road right-of-way immediately west of the subject parcel (identified in the map below). In addition, the proposed maximum density was revised from 110 to 95 units per hectare which would allow for up to 33 units on the site.

In summary, the proposed M-C1 d95 District would allow for:

  • Multi-residential buildings such as townhouses and low-rise apartment buildings;
  • a maximum building height of 14 metres (an increase from the current maximum of 10 metres);
  • a maximum of 33 units (an increase from the current maximum of one single-detached dwelling);

Habitat for Humanity has indicated they would like to develop 32 dwelling units on the parcel in a townhouse built form. A Development Permit for the site has not yet been submitted.
