That parking rule doesn't just apply to Anderson I don't think, isn't it systemwide? Agreed totally kills all redevelopment and is completely backwards.Brentwood took off, and then stalled out it seems. Anderson has an approved outline plan, but it came with Council requiring a 1 for 1 parking stall replacement to ensure the same number of park and ride stalls remained, which essentially hampers the City's real estate arm from actually building it, as it kills the pro forma.
I don't think our market also likely can support Vancouver-style mega towers; but there's loads of redevelopment just not near TOD. There's probably a bit more going on here.I am not convinced that the market demand in Calgary is there for TOD yet unfortunately. We are starting to see a few smaller projects around Westbrook, and Shaganappi Point, but not much else on the west line. Matco has a fully approved DP, but no action. Same with Anthem's large project at the Erlton station. I think there are also 2 more towers approved as part of London at Heritage, along with a Seniors residence tower, but noone is pulling the trigger. Might just have to wait a few more years before more happens unfortunately.
