This interim report contains a policy and urban design analysis of the corridor and demonstrates the impacts of height within the corridor through strategic view analysis.
The interim report has focused on assessing the impacts of 12-storey buildings on 9th Avenue, where supported by the Draft ARP, and concludes that such buildings will have a significantly adverse impact on the character and pedestrian experience of the street and on neighbouring properties.
Although the report is not a direct review of the RNDSQR project, the site falls within the main street at a prominent location in the community, and could set a precedent for future development in the community.
The final report, which is anticipated to be released in August, will examine the potential impacts of proposed Local Area Plan heights from a built form perspective, and will make recommendations regarding height and urban design guidelines to minimize impacts.”
