I was wondering where this was at, I guess they are working with the community on a land swap that would allow the community garden to continue unshadowed. This would also involve a new community hall being built south of the garden.

St. John’s School Site – January 2018 – Public Open House re Land Swap
A Public Open House will be held January 31, 2018 from 6-8 pm at Robertson-Wesley United Church, 10209 123 Street. Please join us and learn more about the proposed land swap. This is your opportunity to give feedback, ask questions, etc.

A proposal has been presented to exchange the St. John’s School site on 120 Street for an equal portion of the Oliver Park on 118 Street and 104 Avenue.

More details are on this link:

Kudos to the developer for seeming to try to make this work with the community.

A. Zepp left the meeting due to a conflict.

MOVED: D. Deshpande Motion of support with conditions
● Lack of connectivity and integration with surrounding park space.
● Lack of direct access for tenants from the building to remaining park space to the south.
● Better articulation of the north building elevation, particularly the architectural treatment of the vertical elevator lobby and its integration with the adjacent facade.
● Lack of articulation of west facade and missed opportunity to, at present or in future, accommodate townhouses or other uses to better activate this interface with the adjacent public realm.
● Location of parkade entrance and waste collection area along east facade.
● Lack of street and open space activation along east and south facades, particularly the configuration of town house units and their lack of outdoor amenity areas at grade or defensible space.
SECONDED: D. Brown DEFEATED
FOR THE MOTION: D. Brown, D. Deshpande, S. Kaznacheeva, B. Nolan
AGAINST: R. Labonte, W. Sims, T. Antoniuk, M. Figueira, J. Mills, C. Holmes

MOVED: J. Mills Motion to table
In general, the Committee supports increased density at this location and supports the proposed land swap, but notes that because the submission lacked floor plans or a site context plan the following concerns were not able to be adequately considered by the Committee:
● Lack of connectivity and integration with surrounding park space.
● Lack of direct access for tenants from the building to remaining park space to the south.
● Better articulation of the north building elevation, particularly the architectural treatment of the vertical elevator lobby and its integration with the adjacent facade.
● Lack of articulation of west facade and missed opportunity to, at present or in future, accommodate townhouses or other uses to better activate this interface with the adjacent public realm.
● Location of parkade entrance and waste collection area along east facade.
● Lack of street and open space activation along east and south facades, particularly the configuration of town house units and their lack of outdoor amenity areas at grade or defensible space.

Share your feedback on proposed rezoning in Oliver for residential tower

hGrq11JG9KecB2nG0ztsJdIJsShd70PcMwlY7vDILI7Fc7SBVfbbc4wG_OUVaE6DKHnxEZLrHYsrLGiKl23tFIyxiTHqbeDSTQkpSvG9=s0-d-e1-ft

December 5, 2018

Edmontonians are invited to a drop-in engagement session about a proposed land exchange and rezoning in the Oliver neighbourhood to allow for the development of a residential tower.

Date: Tuesday, December 11
Time: 6 – 8 p.m. (Drop-in, no scheduled presentation)
Location: Robertson-Wesley United Church, 10209 123 Street NW

The City has received a proposal to exchange the St. John’s School site on 120 Street and 102 Avenue for an equal portion of Oliver Park on 118 Street and 104 Avenue. The proposal would make the St. John’s School site a park, and allow for the portion of the northeast end of Oliver Park to be rezoned for a 24-storey residential tower.

The meeting will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposal and provide your feedback to the City and the applicant. Feedback will be summarized in a report to City Council when the proposed rezoning goes to Public Hearing for a decision.

“One of major priorities are park spaces, open spaces, so our residents can enjoy and we feel that this development is not going to allow for future opportunities,” Oliver Community League President Lisa Brown said.

Instead, OCL wants a “best case scenario” where the city keeps Oliver Park as is, and buys that undeveloped land to turn it into a park.

This is fairly significant; OCL usually takes a neutral stance on developments. I only know what CTV has reported on and might not have the whole story, but I'm not sure this is the approach I would have taken.
