The proposed rezoning would accommodate a medium density apartment housing building. The proposed change in zoning is from (DC2) Site Specific Development Control Provision to a new (DC2) Site Specific Development Control Provision at 8301 - 99 Street NW. The proposal includes:
  • Height of 23.0 metres (approximately 6 storeys)
  • Floor Area Ratio of 3.0
  • 26 dwellings
  • Underground parking
An amendment to the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) is also proposed because current policy does not support development of this height at this location.

EDC April 4 Minutes:

FORMAL PRESENTATIONS

B.1. 1538 Mill Creek Condo (Development Permit and Rezoning Application)
Newstudio Architecture Inc. - Carolyn Keeley
8301 - 99 Street NW
Sites legally described as:
Lots 1 & 2, Block 75, Plan I8

MOVED: W. Sims
MOTION OF: Support with conditions.
The Edmonton Design Committee offers the following recommendations:
● Reduce sixth level floor-plate by stepping back on all four sides to provide a more amenable solution to the issue of height. This would reduce the massing at the top of the building thereby minimizing the impact of the sixth floor with respect to the neighbouring context.
● Create a more attractive east facade through increased articulation and/or material variation.
● Identify the extent of commercial development on the main floor in the DC text.
● Append and refer to the final project drawings in the DC document.

SECONDED: C. Domanski
CARRIED
FOR THE MOTION: C. Domanski, M. Figueira, S. Kaznacheeva, R. Labonte, H. Mapstone, W. Sims
OPPOSED: C. Craig, A. Rowe

C.3 99 Street Apartments (Rezoning)
Ben Gardner - Gardner Architecture

MOTION: D. Brown

Motion of Non-Support.

The Committee notes that the submission is lacking a complete DC2 regulation detailing
such items as urban integration and street orientation, grade changes, and community
amenity contributions.
In addition, in the opinion of the Committee the following planning and design decisions
should be fundamentally reconsidered:
● The grade change along the 99 Street frontage, limiting access and activation.
● The location of commercial uses on 83 Avenue as opposed to 99 Street.
● The location and recessed placement of the residential entry, compromising
prominence and safety.

SECONDED: A. Zepp
CARRIED
FOR THE MOTION: A.Benoit, D. Deshpande, A. Zepp, D. Brown, T. Antoniuk, C.
Holmes, J. Mills, B. Nolan
AGAINST: S. Kaznacheeva

 
Finally some details on the proposed changes:

Maximum number of dwellings increased from 22 to 29
Floor Area Ratio increased from 3.0 to 3.2
Added requirement for a minimum amount of commercial floor area of 90 sq. m
Minor adjustments to setbacks of the building from lot lines
Reduction/removal of some stepbacks of building facades.
The maximum building height of 23.0 m has not been changed.
