Equity Built Homes is a small business with over fifteen years experience building residential and commercial developments.
Scope of Work
Equity Built Homes owned a lot, zoned RF1 (single detached residential) in Queen Mary Park. Situate was hired in 2022 as the planning consultant to conduct a zoning analysis and manage the rezoning of the site to the RF3 (small scale infill development zone). The rezoning would allow for the development of four units of row housing, with basement and garden suites.
Situate managed the application to the City, which involved amending the Central McDougall/Queen Mary Park Area Redevelopment Plan, and conducted neighbour outreach. Outreach included sending custom notices to the neighbours, engaging with the Community League, and creating a project webpage to share information and to answer commonly asked questions.
The rezoning application was unanimously approved by Edmonton City Council on May 25, 2022 (see Items 3.12 & 3.13 in the meeting minutes). As a result, Equity will be able to develop ground-oriented multi-unit housing in a neighbourhood where the majority of residents live in apartments or single detached houses.
