We first featured this substantial rental residential building proposed for the corner of East 11th and Kingsway in June 2013. The design, by Acton Ostry, was changed following an initial rejection by the Urban Design Panel. It was first designed as a 13 storey building with 195 units with ground floor commercial space; the second iteration (this model from October 2013) was for 15 floors but six fewer units.
It’s both a rezoning and a development permit application under the Rental 100 Program (so it would be rental for 60 years or the life of the building). This is a slightly different version – a number of changes have been made to improve light into the courtyard and it’s now 14 storeys and 202 units. The next step will be a rezoning hearing if Council agree to move it forward at a Council meeting this week.
