B&A Planning Group is preparing and managing a Land Use Re-designation application for a parcel of land in eastern Inglewood at 740 – 19 Street SE. This land formerly operated as a Husky gas station from 1962 until its removal in 2011, and has sat vacant since. Our vision for the project, known as “The Grid”, is to transform the vacant lands into a vibrant residential development that will provide more opportunities to live, work and play in one of Calgary’s most desirable inner-city neighbourhoods.
The application proposes to re-designate the site from its current auto-oriented commercial corridor district to a multi-residential, high rise district to accommodate a 20-storey, approximately 170 unit residential tower surrounded by a base of 14 townhouse units.
With the site’s proximity to the future Blackfoot Trail / 9 Avenue Bus Rapid Transit station, the vision for the site aligns with the City of Calgary’s Municipal Development Plan including land use, local area revitalization and locating higher residential density close to major transit systems.
Prior to submitting the land use application, B&A is implementing a communications and engagement strategy to facilitate thoughtful conversation with nearby residents, businesses and the public-at-large to understand questions and comments regarding the proposed development.
