There is a big slope around that section, going downward from Credo and then upward to the park. Not sure whether this will affect the construction of a mid-rise.
 
A slope is an advantage with less excavation and shoring (if applicable) needed.
 
Mostly if somehow the R-CG zoning concept as a whole disappears due to crazy politics, this project would still be allowed imo, to expand on my certainty point.
Sometimes the proposed development have so many bylaw relaxations required in order to make it pencil that a DC is crafted -- makes it a permitted (ie unappealable) use.
 
Infill at 19th street and 18th ave.

Land use redesignation application for 2250 17A ST SW. Townhome or apartment with a maximum of 31 units.


The land was resold after the previous owner went bankrupt, it seems.

It is proposed by CTZN, the developer of 1732 Bankview.

Unfortunately not much details on line about it, other than it's a small 4 building development designed by FAAS with secondary suites. This is the only rendering I could find, coming from this site which says it has 15 units. It's replacing two small homes and an empty lot, so pretty good density boost overall. It's also nice another 20th ave development that's not a duplex.

Provide themselves or their future buyer absolute certainty.

I'm also curious about this - if they're building something that would be allowed under R-CG, why go through the effort of redesignation to DC?

Yeah seems odd in that way - but I am not an expert in the R-CG rezoning process now that that has passed citywide, perhaps to @darwink 's point, this is just to really spell out exactly what can happen on this parcel to make it easier to sell. It sounds like it just has R-CG base characteristics, but they have removed the ability to have single, semis or duplexes via the DC - so that would be the only change?

ah that makes a lot of sense.
Any restrictive covenant here? If my understanding of them is correct, at least some won't be impacted by RCG given the non minimum density, whereas the direct control, specifically mentioning minimum density, will overrule them (depending on their specific wording).

My shot in the dark - there is a restrictive covenant that the minimum density requirement would overrule, based on the Banff Trail judge decision.
 
A small infill project of 10 units on the south east corner of sixth Avenue and 19th St., Northwest.
The application status is pending appeal at the moment, but they’ve already started demolition.
