Proposed Land Use Redesignation at 84 Silvercreek Crescent NW


On March 24, 2017, Gravity Architecture submitted an application on behalf of Habitat for Humanity to redesignation this property from Special Purpose – Future Urban Development (S-FUD) District to Multi-Residential – Contextual Low Profile District (M-C1d110) District to allow for redevelopment of the site to multi-residential buildings (e.g. townhouses or low-rise apartments). The property is located at 84 Silvercreek Crescent NW in the community ​of Silver Springs and is adjacent to Nose Hill Drive NW.

 The proposed M-C1 District would allow for:

  • a maximum of 38 units (an increase from the current maximum of one single-detached dwelling);
  • a maximum building height of 14 metres (an increase from the current maximum of 10 metres);
  • the uses listed in the proposed M-C1 designation.

Habitat for Humanity intends to develop 32 dwelling units on the parcel in a townhouse built form.
