An application has been submitted to the City to re-designate 5 single family homes along 17th Avenue SW to M-H1 zoning.

17th Ave Lots M-H1

What is Multi-Residential – High Density Low Rise District (M-H1)?

M-H1 is a multi-residential designation that is primarily for 4 to 8 storey apartment buildings that may include commercial storefronts.

What is going to be built if this is approved?

The process for re-designation is not tied to the process for building permits. If re-zoned to M-H1, these five lots could become home to 110 dwelling units, as well as commercial store fronts along street level.

An example of a project similar to the scale that this zoning could allow is the St. John’s building in Kensington, which has 95 dwelling units.
