A modest mixed-use proposal for 99 Street and 83 Avenue returns to City Council on Tuesday, January 21, after sitting in limbo for over two years.

The original proposal - known as 1538 Mill Creek Condo designed by Newstudio Architecture - received rezoning approval in July 2017 for a 6-story, 22-unit residential building with a small commercial retail space in the podium.

A small 2-story commercial building once stood on the site, and was home to the DV8 Tavern. That building was demolished sometime in early 2017, however the property has remained vacant since.

Now, the owners have teamed up with Gardner Architecture to revise the design. The revisions include an increase to 29 units, and reduced setbacks and stepbacks. Elevation plans and renders submitted to the City show a boxier but cleaner design with enclosed balconies, more wood accents, and a more defined commercial space.

The Public Hearing for the rezoning takes place on Tuesday, January 21 at 1:30 pm in Council Chambers.
