Thank you to all in attendance at the PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING PROPOSED OAKMONT AREA STRUCTURE PLAN AMENDMENT AND LAND USE BYLAW AMENDMENT FOR 230 AND 250 BELLEROSE DRIVE, AND 300 ORCHARD COURT ST. ALBERT, AB, via Zoom Webinar on Oct 6, 2020.

For those unable to attend, or to review the Zoom Webinar, a recording has been posted on our Blog.
Your input, by way of questions and comments, is appreciated and will be taken into consideration as we continue to advance the redesign of Riverbank Landing. Many of the changes seen in the redesign options stem from feedback we have received to date from the residents of St. Albert

Boudreau Communities and the Design Team at Arc Studios will continue to review all input gathered, and farther develop the redesign of Riverbank Landing.

A redesigned application to amend the Oakmont Area Structure Plan (ASP) and Land Use Bylaw from Direct Control to Direct Control Mixed Use (DCMU) will be submitted to the City of St. Albert by Boudreau Communities Ltd. in the near future.

Again, we thank you for your role in the redesign of Riverbank Landing, a development that is sure to enrich the lives of many.

Two New Preliminary Design Options

Based on the feedback received so far from the first proposed design for Riverbank Landing, two preliminary design options have evolved and will be the starting point to gather opinions from St. Albertan’s regarding the redesign for Riverbank Landing. We’ve kept the best and changed the things we heard were concerning.

What’s Changed?

Building Heights

Building heights have been greatly reduced from 100 meters to a maximum of 50 meters.

Over All Density

The number of residential units has been reduce from 466 to a maximum ranging from 360 to 390 units. A reduction has also been made to the amount of commercial space.

Traffic

With the reduction in residential units and commercial space the traffic to and from Riverbank Landing will be reduced.

We’ve Kept the Best!!!

Access to Greenspaces and Outdoors

This beings with pocket parks and a village square connected by on site walking paths for all of St. Albert to enjoy. Boudreau Communities will work with the City and the Province and attempt to connect the Red Willow Trail System on the north side of the river and add a launching point or dock to the river.

The Comforts in Life

A signature destination restaurant is still a big a part of Riverbank Landing as well as cafés, gourmet shops and the boutique shopping experience. And to provide the supports we need in life professional, medical, health and spa service will still have a place to set up shop.
