Ramsay 11 Street S.E. Policy Amendment
In the video Gian-Carlo explains what will be coming to Council on January 11, 2016, and how you can give your input on the planning merit of this project.
In September of 2015, City Council reviewed the land use application of the Old Imperial Oil site on 11th Street SE, north of the Ramsay Design Centre. The original request was for a land use change to Land Use District MH 1. This would allow for a building that incorporates both commercial and residential, typically 6-8 stories high.
Can we explore higher density?
City Council was concerned that the request for MH 1 was not enough density, particularity with the Green Line LRT station set to be built next to this site. The Councillors asked the applicant and the Ramsay business representatives if there was an appetite to pursue higher density. Seeing that there was, City Council requested that City Administration examine the possibility of a different Land Use District.
