Address: 8207 - 105 STREET NW
Planner Description: The City has received a rezoning application from Stantec Consulting Ltd. The current zone is a Direct Control Zone (DC.20476) and the proposed zone is a new Direct Control Zone (DC). The proposed DC Zone would allowfor a mid-rise mixed use building with the following characteristics: A) A maximum height of 34.0 m (approximately 9 - 11 storeys). B) A maximum floor area ratio of 5.5. C) Up to 473 square metres of commercial space at ground level. D) Up to 65 residential dwellings.
Status: In Review

Do we know anything about this?

Between this, the Varsity, and the Hat that would be three significant projects with three blocks along 105 St and a lot more people living just off Whyte. 👀

Possibly the return of The Baron by Wexford?

Stantec was the planning consultant originally on this project.

 
With an FAR of 5.5 it is more likely to be 7 storeys max. and with current Alta. code 7 would be doable with Concrete Main and wood above. Alta. should alter its code to allow Mass Timber, Glulam and CLT structures to go to at least 18 storeys, if not 26.
 
listening to the radio this morning. Tenants were given 30 day s to vacate. It sounds like the units below the theater are experiencing leaking from above. May be more to this like structural issues.
Serious yes but I would assume if it was structural they would have had to vacate immediately, not in 30 days.

Well at least the new: Stollery, Law Courts and S.Park hospital expansion are in "planning" mode. Not sure we've heard of the "Royal Alex Campus - business case" yet?
Maybe it's a 'campus style' plan to decide where future buildings for the RAH will be located. There are still a few surface parking lots adjacent to existing buildings that would be great options.

I remember seeing some docs that had a replacement building for the old Wings. A new tower about the location beside the transit centre. And eventually remove and replace the old wings.
 
Would this be their way of making up for the monthballed South Hospital? Increase capacity at the existing campuses and adding different services etc?
 
Any new tower would include some more active treatment areas. And based on costing for hospitals right now I can't see RAH addition coming in anywhere less than $500mil.
Red Deer is going to be that at least when it finally starts construction.
Strathcona Hospital may get more services. They do not have patient care areas.
