Wow, I actually quite like this proposal! It's interesting with the shapes and materials but not too out there.

Ben Gardner - Gardner Architecture

Motion of support with the following conditions:
● The Committee notes that the minimum landscape requirements have not
been met. In meeting these requirements, consideration should be given to
reconfiguring site accesses (eg. stairs, ramps) and in turn creating
opportunities for larger planting beds and tree planting.
● A rooftop amenity plan should be provided as part of the Development
Permit submission.


@Kaizen Looks like there is already a thread for that development you mentioned a few days ago!

The amendments to the original application have already been discussed in this thread, but here's the latest from the city website:

"A planning application (map) has been received for the rezoning of a property at 8301 99 Street NW. The proposed zoning is for a new Site Specific Development Control Provision (DC2) that is similar to the existing DC2 Provision, but with the following 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.

An associated application has also been made to amend the Strathcona Area Redevelopment Plan to remove the requirement for the building to have a stepback above the third storey, and instead use building articulations and colour contrast to reduce the perceived building mass of a six-storey building on this site, and add visual interest to the streetscape.
