City Council approved new residential zoning for the Norquay Village area, providing for greater density in new housing forms.
The plan is seen as a template for growth in other single-family areas, with an apartment transition area as a physical buffer between the higher densities and mid-rise buildings on Kingsway to the residential neighbourhoods. Housing is expected to be oriented to families in three- to four-storey buildings.
The rezoning follows the 2010 Norquay Village area plan, which sees Kingsway as a local high street, with community facilities and new residential zones.
