PROPOSED DEVELOPMENTS

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION SITE REDEVELOPMENT | 211-221 14 ST NW

Ocgrow is proposing a mixed-use retail/residential on the site of the National Transmission building on the west side of 14 St NW between Kensington Road and 2 Ave NW. The applicant seeks a Land Use Redesignation (rezoning) and amendment to the Hillhurst Sunnyside Area Redevelopment Plan. Requested height: 26m at 8 storeys (ARP max: 20m or 6 storeys) and Floor Area Ratio of 5.0 (ARP max: 4.0 FAR) with a target of 140 condo units.

Residents will need to weight the benefits or challenges of a larger building backing a low-density residential area with the proposed “catalyst” redevelopment of the currently neglected urban corridor. The applicants have proposed an improved streetscape and an on-street parking lane on their front setback to calm traffic and surface parking on the alley for the commercial component.

A Development Permit (plans for the design of the building and surrounding site) has not been submitted yet. Residents will have another opportunity to provide comments to City Planning and to City Council as decision-makers once the Land Use application is submitted – stay tuned to HSCA online or at the applicant’s website at engageocgrowkensington.com for details.

CURRENT PROJECTS

321-331 9A STREET CONDO BUILDING

This is a new Minto Communities condo building that replaces 6 derelict single family homes on the west side of the C-Train tracks. The new building, “Annex” will accommodate 104 units in a 26 metre (9-storey) building.

FUTURE PROJECTS

CBC SITE AT 1724 WESTMOUNT BOULEVARD NW

The former CBC Memorial Drive building was constructed in the 1960s with its expansion completed in 1970. For many years, CBC has been a neighbour in our community, hosting notable events such as their annual Stampede kick-off breakfast and in years past, the book sale. As of Oct 2017, CBC’s operations have moved to another building at 1000 Veterans Place NW. The building was demolished in November 2018.

Anthem’s redevelopment application proposes 83 (down from 84) townhouse units on the site. Anthem and the community await AB Environment & Parks’ review of the creosote contamination in the area. You can find documentation on the creosote contamination that has migrated from the south side of the Bow River by going to aep.alberta.ca and search for “Canada Creosote”. Going forward, AEP intends to hold yearly open houses to provide information to residents rotating between HSCA and WHCA venues.

As for the “Steel Wave” sculpture? The 1978 work by artist, Roy Leadbeater has been donated and has found a new home in an outdoor sculpture park at the Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre in Springbank.
