Event description

Description

In September 2016, City Council approved the development of new single detached homes on eight City owned properties adjacent to 16th Avenue NW in Rosedale. The design-build team has been selected, and we are now entering the design phase of the project.

Calgarians are invited to provide input into the design process and share ideas directly with the design-build team by participating in one of two community design sessions: December 5 (6:30pm to 9pm) and December 9 (9am to 11:30am) at Rosedale school (905 13 Ave N.W.).

Rosedale residents are asked to pre-register for their preferred session. Attendance is limited to 75 people per session. Please plan to attend the entire workshop.

An online engagement opportunity will be available for residents who are unable to attend the workshops from Dec 5 to Dec 22, 2017 at Calgary.ca/rosedale.

Eco Coatings & Exteriors, a subsidiary of Sherger Construction Ltd., was selected for the design-build through the RFP process to lead construction on the units. Eco Coatings & Exteriors is a Calgary-based company that has a solid team of inhouse skilled trades, managers and professionals including licensed designers and engineers.

The architect for the project is FAAS (Formed Alliance Architecture Studio), a Calgary-based firm that has over 70 years of collective experience working on project types including industrial, educational, healthcare, residential, commercial, mixed use, institutional as well as large-scale infrastructure and master planning projects.

Representatives from Eco Coatings & Exteriors and FAAS Architecture will participate in the community design sessions.

The City will provide an update to Rosedale residents in early 2018 on the input received and how it will be integrated into the design.

The City of Calgary has been working collaboratively with the Rosedale Community Association since March 2015 to actively engage with residents in the community of Rosedale. Past engagement initiatives include community association meetings, reports back to the community, block-by-block street consultations, and updates at community association annual general meetings. The development budget was approved by Council in Sept 2016. The City is now continuing to engage the community during the design process, and looks forward to receiving additional citizen input.
