    Default Augustana Lutheran Church site (9901 107th St) | 30 stories | Under Construction

    Anyone know what are the plans for the Augustana Lutheran Church site? According to this article, the church is closing, the land sold to a local developer

    I think that's been in the works for quite some time now. It was on the list of developments that that intern did as part of their project while working at DBA or EEDC (can't remember which one) a summer or two ago. Residential I believe.

    Good site for a mixed use tower, I wonder if the developer bought the lot north as well.

    I could be wrong, but I think that parking lot is owned by WCB

    Actually half of the parking lot is owned by the church as a lot of staff from WCB park here and rent from the church.
    there are two rows right next to the Jarvis building that to my knowledge are owned by WCB

    Downtown Edmonton church closes doors after 85 years
    Reverend Kathleen Schmitke has spent 14 months preparing her congregation

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmont...ears-1.2885091

    An Edmonton church with 85 years of history held its final service on Sunday.

    Dozens of congregation members — many of whom appear in baptism and confirmation photos pasted in the church’s basement — were on hand to say goodbye to the Augustana Lutheran Church.

    The downtown property has been sold to a local developer, who will likely tear down the old church building to make way for a high-rise condominium.

    But while the church itself will soon be gone, parts of it will live on. Some money from the sale of the property will go towards missions, while several of the pews and the pulpit and altar are destined for a church in Manitoba. The welcome sign will find a new home at the Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in south Edmonton.
    Still no intel on who bought it?

    Well considering the location and proximity to the Legislature area I wouldn't be surprised some sort of condo will be going there. As long at they have retail street interaction I'll be happy.

    From two years ago, $20M residential project rumoured for the site.

    I've heard that is their plan... was hoping it was still in the zone for downtown non accessory parking.

    I was under the impression that demolishing a building for surface parking was not allowed downtown anymore. But don't worry - as Ian said, he will be watching closely and DECL will be on it. He's got power and pull, that boy!

    So around 27-30 storeys based on the listed maximum height of 95m (if they end up going that high).

    That area really could use some more people on the street after 6pm, and this one would go a long way towards it.

    Bingo.

    Amazing views, good CRU space of about 5000sqft, small units.

    Curious about more details on the design when that occurs.

    I like how it looks, just wish it was being proposed for a different location further north where there are some massive gaps in buildings. Otherwise I think it could be nice in its proposed location.

    25 storeys on top of a 4 storey podium.

    This will be a great boon to the area as I would hope that it will help spur development of the parking lots to its east. I am absolutely delighted that it's John Day as well. From his comments in that story (at the 0:28 mark), I get the impression that we're likely going to see him get going on this towards the latter stages of the Kelly Ramsey build.

    Is John Day even a lawyer anymore? I mean, he has so many developments it must be a full time job. He sure executes it well.

    For that development on 107st/99 ave, it would really be a shame to lose these three mature blvd trees. I know it is a tight lot, but one of the best parts about 99 avenue is the tree canopy. They should be within the setback, so we might see them remain, but we will need to keep our eyes on these.

    Trees don't last forever. At some point they will die and need to be cut down anyway. If they do need to cut them down, hopefully they replant new trees after the project's done.

    I do sometimes wish there were more developers in this city want to keep building and building as opposed to land owner/speculators who are happy with parking lots.

    Augustana Tower

    Rooftop patio and amenity
    25 bike stalls, too low
    Hoping to land a destination restaurant
    No stucco
    Blvd trees to remain or be replaced

    Bad photo, but you get the idea.

    No stucco is great news. That would mean cladding or brick. Render looks good - but I count 26 stories - not 30 but hard to tell from the "blurriness". I think a destination resto will work great, particularly at lunch and into evenings. There is room for other condos and rental high-rises in the area - lots of vacant lots that could be developed and help support the resto.

    A destination restaurant there would be great. That part of the city is dominated by WCB bunkerhood.

    Is there a parkade? if so, how many levels?

    ^25 bike stalls? That's funny. I would say a building like that could offer 50-65 bike spaces minimum.

    Augustana meeting on the news this morning.
    Not much detail from the story except NIMBYs gonna NIMB. Which I find surprising because there's barely any residential there! Who the hell is opposing this??

    My guess is the residents in the midrise across 99 Ave.

    Oddly enough, CTV used the Healy redevelopment clip of me for this development, call into CTV.

    There were only maybe 5-6 residents, only opposition I heard was to it being rental...

    A high-rise residential tower planned near the Alberta legislature could transform an area dominated by office buildings.

    The 30-storey tower, proposed for 107th Street and 99th Avenue, would be 96 metres tall, nearly twice the height allowed under current zoning.

    The project will have a maximum of 235 units and 148 underground parking stalls. Plans also include space for stores along the street.

    ^I think so.

    We need some residential density there and smaller modern rental would be a nice addition to the entire core.

    We are lacking great restaurant options near the Fed/Leg, this would help.

    People complaining about the stucco and punched windows, geez even the Icons would be an improvement next to the Jarvis Building. This will be a welcoming improvement to the area.

    FYI just in case you forgot how the Jarvis Building looks like;

    and that is generally not preferable to a greater proportion of window wall for the envelope of a modern tower?

    Wow... they are sure wanting ducks in a row for when they get the re-zoning done. I wonder if we will see demo shortly and then, if approved of course, excavation this year? My bet is yes.

    Construction manager is being picked or has already been picked. So things will start happening soon, I would think.

    Awesome if they're planning to construct ASAP. This, too? Will transform the optic of that area along with "Hendrix". As well, I hope this will spur movement to the east of that paradigm.

    Updated Augustana redevelopment, small but important improvements. Goes to Council Nov 2. for debate and decision, please get your thoughts/comments in to the Mayor, Councillor and the City Clerk (important) prior to that date. I am liking what I am seeing.

    Yup, 6641 sqft west side and a leasing office on the east.

    NO Stucco!!!

    Amazing views this one will have, tempted to rent a higher up SW.

    They want to get this one going ASAP as well, expect action, if approved, late 2015/early 2016.

    City Council approves sunset clause zoning for this site: http://edmontonjournal.com/news/loca...0c2ed36d5d4dce

    The clock is ticking for developer John Day and his plans to build a slender new residential tower near the Alberta legislature.

    For the second time this fall, council included a sunset clause on a new zoning permit. The extra 15 storeys council granted Monday is only good for 10 years. If he hasn’t started construction when the clock runs out, zoning rules revert to the 50-metre height limit previously in place.

    ...

    “This is an important provision,” said Coun. Scott McKeen, defending the time limit and asking administration to come back with a policy that could apply similar sunset clauses to future rezoning applications throughout the downtown core.

    Sunset clauses can spur development and ensure developers build what they propose, he said. “We have a number of parcels in the downtown that have been sat on forever,” McKeen said.
    Day hopes to start construction in 2016:

    Day’s new tower is proposed for 99th Avenue and 107th Street, on the site of the Augustana Lutheran Church. He hopes to start construction next year and open the building 2-1/2 years later.

    Despite recent increases in the vacancy rate, he’s still planning to make all 226 units rentals. “Edmonton’s still steady. The market hasn’t collapsed here. As long as it’s quality accommodation at a reasonable price, people will support it.”

    Curious about the sunset clause or general requests by the city in the development permits. I've seen requests placed by the city ignored when they add time lines into development permits. For example with signature condos they had a clause that said the parkade must be landscaped and capped within a few years. That didn't happen nor does the city care to hold them accountable.

    The city chooses not to enforce the permits issued with timelines already so why should people trust this case is any different?

    The guy can dig a small hole at the end of year 10 and that would technically mean he's started construction and then sit on it for another 5+ years and the city won't do anything.

    Great potential with this design. That neighbourhood needs as much residential and street-level retail as it can get.

    Is that a residential podium as well?

    Hope it gets built.

    What do you mean by an amazing backyard across the street while referencing 2-3 bdrm units as fam friendly? Do you even know what it takes to make a dwelling or location "fam friendly"? Usually a backyard is some place where you can let the kids play and still keep an eye on them from the house. I'm not sure the ledge grounds qualify as that. Seems like your just throwing that out there, quite the mistake.
