Town of Canmore

1 Industrial Place (iPlace)

 What is happening? 

An application has been approved for a mixed-use building on private land, located at 1 Industrial Place (on the corner of 17 Ave and Industrial Place). The building includes employee housing and offices above the main floor, light manufacturing operations, retail thrift stores, an eating establishment, and a warehouse store.

Additional information can be found in the pdf Traffic Impact Assessment (2.76 MB) prepared for this development. Read more about the Town of Canmore's Integrated Parking Management plan.

No parking variations were required for this project, as the revised plan requires 98 stalls, and they are providing 106. The development exceeds the requirements for on-site bicycling stalls by 44 stalls, and provides bicycle amenities such as workstations and indoor storage, and a car share program. The site is located very close to the downtown as well as a bus stop, and the developer is providing eight more employee housing units than in the original proposal. Other variances that were granted include increasing building height (of 1.49m), roof pitch, building materials to include non-natural finishing materials, allowing two loading bays instead of the required four bays, and allowing light fixtures to have 5116 lumens instead of the maximum 5000 lumens.

The Canmore Planning Commission approved the application on Aug. 28, 2019.
