96 Unit DC Guideline & Heritage Loss Offset in Hillhurst

Memorial Drive NW in Hillhurst
Developed by Anthem Properties:

This Direct Control (DC) Guideline involved development of a heritage assessment matrix and heritage value exchange negotiation with the Community and City of Calgary over a two year engagement and participation in the HSCA Multi-stakeholder Task Force on Developer Engagement. The outcome was a successful rezoning based on M-C2 that saw the registration of two commercial buildings in Kensington as Municipal Heritage Buildings: the Smith (Cuzzubbo) Residence & Arnell Block.

75+ Unit Mixed-Use DC Guideline in Hillhurst

The Carpenter’s Hall Assembly
Developed by Bucci: The Kensington

This Direct Control (DC) Guideline was approved by Council in May 2013. This rezoning paved the way for development of the properties at the maximum height and FAR of the HSCA ARP and TOD guidelines. In addition to the required community consultation on the rezoning, Jennifer hosted a Laneway Roundtable Discussion at the request of the ward Councilor to engage the community in addressing concerns about the busy shared commercial-residential laneway.
