Description

City Council approved the rezoning policy for the four-square block site bounded by 33rd, Main, 35th and half a block west of Quebec Street for increased residential density, focusing on innovative, ground-oriented housing types aimed at families.

Significance

The area is what would be the northwest quadrant of the L-shaped Little Mountain site. It was seen as providing a transition in scale between Little Mountain and surrounding single-family areas. It was also one of the first areas to have its own fixed-rate community amenity contribution targets, which the city said was calibrated to encourage a variety of housing forms and amenities for the area.

Background

The area had been primarily made up of single-family houses, with a few duplexes and low-rise apartment buildings.
