B&A Planning Group is 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 original application proposed to re-designate the site from its current auto-oriented commercial corridor district to a multi-residential, high rise district (M-H3) to accommodate a 20-storey, approximately 170 unit residential tower surrounded by a base of 14 townhouse units.
As a result of the feedback received from the community, the project team refined its Land Use Redesignation application to The City for a Direct Control District, based on a Multi-Residential High Density Medium Rise District (M-H2) in recognition of the site’s locational characteristics.
As part of our land use amendment submission, we prepared development concepts to illustrate the anticipated development for the site and assist in better defining the Direct Control District (as seen below).
Prior to the approval of any building on the site, The City would require a development permit. This process would include a much more detailed design, which would be circulated in accordance with The City’s requirements.
|Land use concept proposed at Open House||Application submitted to The City of Calgary|
|Land Use||Multi-Residential (M-H3) – High Density High Rise District||Direct Control District based on Multi-Residential – High Density Medium Rise (M-H2) District|
|FAR (Floor Area Ratio)||5.21||5.0|
The application is now in circulation with The City of Calgary. The City will determine the need for an additional public engagement opportunity prior to Corporate Planning Applications Group (CPAG) team preparing its Detail Team Review document and preparing recommendations to the Calgary Planning Commission (CPC) and Council for the consideration of the land use redesignation.
