A revised rezoning application has been received for the site of 11323, 11325, 11329, 11333 and 11335 University Avenue NW (formerly known as McKernan Crossing, now called 114 University II). The proposed zoning is still for a (DC2) Site Specific Development Control Provision that would allow for a mid-rise building but with the following key changes:
The maximum height reduced from 30.0 m to 23.0 m (approximately 6 storeys);
The maximum floor area ratio reduced from 5.35 to 3.4; and
The maximum number of dwellings reduced from 210 to 132.
With these changes, the application now conforms to the McKernan-Belgravia Station Area Redevelopment Plan. It does have some variances from the standard RA8 zoning that might otherwise be appropriate for the site: the setbacks are slightly smaller, the Floor Area Ration is 3.4 (instead of 3.3), and the parkade entrance would be shared with the neighbouring development to the west.
Full details of the project can be viewed at the Application Webpage.
It is important that community members respond to the engagement survey, which is at https://engaged.edmonton.ca/114University2. This survey will only be open until Friday, February 5 so do not delay with your comments and questions. Answers to questions will be posted on the site as well.
(Notification of this engagement period was received by the community too late to include in the January McKernan Messenger.)
