Development permit submitted for 150-unit building in Glenmore

A development permit (DP) for an apartment in the Glenmore area has been submitted at city hall.

Lime Architecture, on behalf of Empowered Development Ltd., has revealed design plans for a 154-unit project that, if approved by the city, will be going up at 438 Valley Road.

A rezoning application submitted in October 2023 is looking to rezone from the RU1 – Large Lot Housing zone to the VC1 – Village Centre zone.

When that application was submitted, the developer indicated plans for some rental units, however, the amount of units has yet to be determined. The DP indicates there would bea rental office at the centre of the building.

“The building design includes an easily accessible lobby entrance with access provided to the site from a proposed extension of Drysdale Boulevard to the southern property boundary eliminating the current access from Valley Road,” the application says.

The Drysdale extension would also provide access to two levels of parking space and seven ground-level residential units.

According to the application, in an effort to minimize traffic impacts to the surrounding area, parking has been split over two levels with access to the lower level provided by two internal vehicle elevators.

Access to the remaining 147 residential units would be accessed through a lobby.

The building would be six-storeys in height and would have an array of amenity spaces including private balconies for each unit, a dog run, landscaped walking path, gym at ground-level, and a landscaped amenity space on the second level.

A car-share stall is being provided. There would be 181 vehicle stalls and 122 bike stalls provided, which exceeds the parking bylaw requirements.

No variances are being requested.

The development permit application was just submitted on Feb. 20, however, city council still has to review the rezoning application first.
