Silvera, the current owners of this site, began planning the evolution of this larger property in 2014. The vision of a multi-residential campus with both senior-specific and regular market housing was finalized in January 2019 through the approval of the land use bylaw governing the use of this site: Direct Control district 3D2019. In 2020, Spray Group entered into an agreement to purchase the site from Silvera, pending the approval of a development permit, and will be the landlord of this development.

*Due to the slope of the site, the north end of this development interfacing with the lane will consist of 4 storeys, while the south end interfacing with 50th Ave SW will consist of 6 storeys

DESIGN

Asset 1

• Additional building setbacks with a
16.0 m max building height beside
existing low-density residential
districts
• 20.0 m max building height
immediately abutting Silvera
developments on the west and
Horizon View on the east.
• Building shadowing that aligns with
these diagrams
• Increased green space on-site
through added landscaping features
• Neighbour privacy measures include
tree screening, significant north boundary
setbacks, and reduced building height
along the laneway due to significant grade
change that will help reduce sightlines
into resident backyards
• All building code requirements on the site
will be met or exceeded – the building will be
fully sprinklered, with non-combustible
cladding used throughout
• Pedestrian access to the Silvera site is in
the process of being developed and
coordinated with the neighbours to the west

SAFETY/SECURITY

Asset 2

• Incorporate Crime Prevention Through
Environmental Design (CPTED) measures,
such as strategic lighting placement
in designing the site
• The fence between the site and
the north alleyway will be incorporated
to reduce access to and from the site
• Completing this vacant site
with a higher density development
will create more “eyes-on-the-street”,
reducing the chances of social
disorder in the alleyway
• Spray Group values its
properties, and all tenants
are screened and references
checked

CONSTRUCTION DISRUPTION

Asset 3

Minimized by ensuring:
• Noise bylaws are observed
• Traffic will be routed along
46th St, 50th St and 50th
Ave
• Specialized after-hours on-
site security

IMPORTANT DATES

The project requires a Development Permit and S2 Architecture plans to submit the application by November 30th. If you have any questions or comments prior to that, please contact Srimal at Srimal@hivedevelopments.ca

The Glamorgan Community Association (GCA) and area residents can send comments to The City of Calgary once the application has been accepted by The City. The GCA will receive a copy of the application and will submit its response to The City. If you have any comments after November 30th, please contact your community association at info@myglamorgan.ca

A sign will also be posted on the site, 4830 50th Ave SW, with information on where residents should send their comments.

Note: this proposed timeline is simply the most optimistic approximation. There are many reasons, from permit granting delays, weather, and construction complications that require modifications.
