Proposed rezoning in The Quarters Downtown for artists’ tower

Residents are invited to a public meeting to provide feedback on a proposed rezoning on the southwest corner of 96 Street and 102 A Avenue NW in the Armature District of The Quarters Downtown.

Date: Tuesday, November 24, 2015
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Boyle Street Community League (101 Boyle Street Plaza)
9538 103A Ave NW
The proposed rezoning to a new (DC1) Direct Development Control Provision would allow for the construction of a 77-metre (approximately 18 storeys) tower known as the Artists Quarters. The proposed building would feature a maximum of 75 suites where artists would live and work, recreational and commercial uses in the bottom four storeys, and an underground parkade.

A closure of a portion of a north/south alley located west of 96 Street NW between 102 and 102A Avenues would be required to accommodate the development.

The public meeting will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposal and provide feedback, which will be summarized in a report to city council for a final decision on the proposed rezoning.

The Artists Quarters Project is a partnership between the Artists Urban Village and the Arts Habitat Association of Edmonton, and is supported by the City of Edmonton’s Cornerstones program.
