Subscribe to e-mail updates


A public information session was held on Aug. 29, 2017. Thank you to those of you who provided your input. A What We Heard Report is now available for you to review.

The City of Calgary received a proposal (file number LOC2015-0085) from Cosola Koppe Architects, representing the developer and landowners, to redesignate (rezone) the subject site.

The subject site is an 11.4 hectare parcel of residual undeveloped land in the community of Red Carpet. The property abuts the west side of 68 Street SE, in the area north of 17 Avenue SE.

The proposal is to change the allowable uses and development form for this property and close a portion of an adjacent road right-of-way. An Outline Plan showing the concept plan for the development is included as part of the application. The application allows for:

  • Under the M-CG District (8.8 hectares), a maximum of 494 townhouses limited to 12 metre in height (about 2-3 storeys);
  • Under the C-COR1f3.0h16 District (0.7 hectares), mixed-use and commercial buildings (e.g. commercial storefronts with apartments or offices above), up to 16 metres (about 4 storeys);
  • Under the M-H1f3.0h18d215 District, apartment buildings (276 units) up to 18 metres (about 5 storeys); and
  • the uses listed in the proposed C-COR1, M-H1 and M-CG designations.

There is no Area Structure Plan or other local community plan for this area. Applicable policy is the Municipal Development Plan (MDP). The proposed outline plan and redesignations support the MDP in a number of ways, including:

  • densification
  • range of housing types
  • optimizing use of existing infrastructure
  • development of easily serviced land
  • opportunities for affordable housing
