St. Albert city council has granted Landrex the go-ahead on a new mixed-use development on Erin Ridge North.
The development would be composed of approximately 140,000 square feet of commercial floor space and 120 residential units located either above the businesses or in stand-alone buildings. About 8 per cent of the site would be dedicated to park space.
The mixed-use site aims to blend commercial and residential in the type of walkable, accessible community supported by the city. It is expected the development will attract more retail to the St. Albert Trail.
“It’s not surprising for the developer to come forward with a proposal to have residential mixed with commercial. We’ve shown the way,” Mayor Nolan Crouse told the St. Albert Gazette.
