Wildwood Affordable Housing Development

Construction update:

On May 8, excavation work began on the future site of the Wildwood affordable housing development located at 4012 Bow Trail SW.

The majority of the work will take place on weekdays, with occasional work on weekends.

As a result of the construction, a portion of 38th Street SW will be closed for approximately 7-10 days at the end of May/early June to allow for underground site service connections.

The excavation work is expected to conclude by the end of June, and construction of the development will begin.

We appreciate your patience while crews are working in the area.

If you have any questions about the excavation work, please contact 311. 

Development update: Environmental Assessment Report

As part of the land-use and development permit process for 4012 Bow Trail S.W., The City hired an independent engineering firm to provide a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for review by The City’s Planning Department. The final report was received November 2, 2015 and identified the presence of tetrachloroethene (commonly known as PCE) in one location on the site. The report also indicated the source of the substance was off-site. Alberta Environment and Parks has reviewed the revised final report and request the City provide a final report documenting remediation and monitoring activities of the site.
