What is being proposed?
The applicant is planning to construct a purpose-built 159 unit residential rental building at 120 and 130 Kananaskis Way.
This district includes a provision for lower parking requirements for a rental building. Should the building convert to a condominium ownership model, it is expected that parking demands would be higher and additional parking would be required to be provided in accordance with the general parking requirements of the Land Use Bylaw (Section 4.3.2.). The alternate parking standards are consistent with those recently approved for the Coast and Palliser Moustache sites, however 263 bicycle parking stalls, both indoor and outdoor,shall be provided on the main floor, directly adjacent to primary building access.
