    Dalhousie Co-op Redevelopment Update for April 24th, 2023

    Some of you may recall that Co-op partnered with Quarry Bay Investments for a major redevelopment of the Co-op site at the corner of Dalhousie Drive and Shaganappi Trail. This included a period of significant public engagement, with Dalhousie residents helping shape a vision for the site that culminated Council’s approval of concurrent land use amendment LOC2016-0326 and development permit DP2016-5075. While any redevelopment of this scale has yet to come to fruition, Co-op has recently brought forth a new development proposal as DP2022-07120 for a New: Drive Through, Health Care Service, Restaurant: Food Service Only (1 building).

    DP2022-07120 was initially submitted to the City on October 20th, 2022 and posted on Development Map, with the opportunity for public comment on the included plans. The Dalhousie Community Association provided comments, through our Planning and Development Committee, based substantially on the engagement results for LOC2016-0326/DP2015-5075. Co-op resubmitted DP2022-07120 on April 11th, 2023, for the same use, but with changes to pedestrian access and public-realm elements.

    Update: October 19, 2016

    Hi everyone;

    Hope you had a great summer!

    I wanted to update you on the Dalhousie Co-op project.

    We were in the Co-op store periodically over the summer with a couple of design boards for people to look at. We’ve found this to be helpful with other projects to socialize the idea with area residents in advance of public meetings. The feedback we had in store was quite positive and residents had lots of great questions we were able to address. We’ve also scheduled two open house meetings for late October (see attachment). We’d love to see you and the other board members out at both or either of the dates. They are informal drop in-style, and we will have architects, consultants and possibly a representative from city planning on hand for people to ask questions and have discussions with. There will be an opportunity for residents to also fill out comment cards (and we also have an app) for about their thoughts on the project. We recently had two such meetings in regards to our Brentwood Co-op redevelopment plans and the style of the open house events was well received. We will be happy to share the feedback we receive from the Dalhousie events with the Community Association Board the week following the open houses.

    If circulating the dates and times about the public open house meetings is something the community association can do, that would be great.

    If the Dalhousie Community Association would like to talk prior to the Open House events or if you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you!
