Reference File Number: LDA18-0011 

Planner: Email Sean Lee or call 780-496-6121 for more information.

Edmonton Tower (10111 104 Avenue NW)

A planning application (map) has been made for a plan amendment and rezoning at 10111 104 Avenue NW, the Edmonton Tower. The application was submitted by Stantec Consulting Ltd., on behalf of ICE District Properties JV.

This application includes two components:

Plan Amendment

The proposed amendment to the Capital City Downtown Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP, 16MB) would expand the Arena and Entertainment District; the area including the Downtown Arena and land south of 104 Avenue, to include the Edmonton Tower site.

Rezoning

The proposed rezoning would change the zone for this site from Core Commercial Arts (CCA) Zone to Arena and Entertainment District (AED) Zone. As the site is already developed with the Edmonton Tower, the rezoning, if approved, may permit large-format digital signage and advertising.

The applicant's stated intent is to "facilitate the development of an overall signage and lighting scheme for ICE District."

Applicant’s examples of possible signage opportunities.

This application is under review by Planning and Environment Services. We welcome your feedback on the application.


Capital City Downtown Plan (16MB)


City Council Public Hearing Date: To be determined.

Reference File Number: LDA17-0481

Planner: Email Sean Lee or call 780-496-6121 for more information.

Approved

10301 104 Street NW

A planning application (map) has been received for a property at 10301 104 Street NW.

The application proposes to rezone the property from the Heritage Area Zone (HA) to the Direct Development Control Provision (DC1) zone. 

Revised Application

This application was previously considered by City Council at a Public Hearing on September 8, 2021. At that time, only the west facade of the historic Horne & Pitfield Building on this site was proposed to be retained and Council passed a motion to refer the application back for adjustments to protect more of this existing historic building. In response, this revised application also includes the retention and designation of the south facade, in addition to the west facade.

The  proposed DC1 Provision (3.9 MB) would allow for a mixed-use tower with the following key characteristics:

  • A maximum tower height of 160 metres (approximately 40 - 45 storeys), with the lower 18 metres (approximately 4-5 storeys) being the base structure
  • A maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 16.0
  • A maximum tower floor plate of 850 square metres

The existing Horne & Pitfield building on this site has been identified for its historical significance, however, it has never been protected from demolition through designation under the provisions of the Historical Resources Act. The proposed DC1 Provision requires the retention, historical designation and incorporation of both the west and south facades of the existing building into the proposed tower base structure.
