Ward 9 Great Neighbourhoods Calgary – Gian-Carlo Carra

This is the official website for Gian-Carlo Carra, City Councillor for Ward 9 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Ramsay 11th Street SE Land Use and Policy Amendment

The Issue:

In September of 2015, City Council reviewed the land use application of the Old Imperial Oil site on 11th Street SE, north of the Ramsay Design Centre. The original request was for a land use change to Land Use District MH 1. This would allow for a building that incorporates both commercial and residential, typically 6-8 stories high. 

City Council was concerned that the request for MH 1 was not enough density, particularly with the Green Line LRT station set to be built next to this site. The Councillors asked the applicant and the Ramsay business representatives if there was an appetite to pursue higher density.  Seeing that there was, City Council requested that City Administration examine  the possibility of a different Land Use District. 

Can we explore higher density?
