Grace Hospital Redevelopment: Land Use Redesignation and ARP Amendment Application

Welcome to the Riley Park Health Campus website. We are excited to be re-starting the conversation with our community after taking 2016 to expand potential opportunities for the redevelopment of the Grace Hospital site. Since our open house held in Sept. 2015 we have solidified our partnering with the Salvation Army to include the Agape Hospice site in the redevelopment vision and are now finalizing the acquisition of Alberta Infrastructure lands along the northwest edge of the property. Our vision for the site has remained consistent since we started this dialog  with the community in 2014. The formal inclusion of the Agape site and the Alberta Infrastructure lands will allow us to consider the overall development site more comprehensively and ensure a synergistic relationship with the community.

Planning for this potential redevelopment project is in early stages. A land use redesignation and ARP amendment application has been submitted to the City. The City of Calgary hosted an open house for this proposed land use redesignation in the Hillhurst/Sunnyside Community Hall on Thursday, June 29. We had positive conversations with a lot of community members who took the time to come learn about the proposed project and share their aspirations and concerns for the site and its contexts with us: Thank you! We will review all comments received and use them to inform further planning for the site. If you missed the open house, you can review the information presented.

Notice of Forthcoming Land Use Redesignation and Area Redevelopment Plan Amendment Application

This is a notice that a forthcoming land use redesignation and Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) amendment application will be submitted in September for the subject site shown below. The subject site is located at the northeast corner of the 8th Avenue NW / 14th Street NW intersection, and currently goes by name of the Riley Park Health Centre. The subject site was once the location of the now-closed Grace Hospital. NorthWest Healthcare Properties is the current owner of the site. Please note: the forthcoming application is not for a development permit.

As a member of the Hillhurst Sunnyside community for over a decade, NorthWest Healthcare Properties is looking forward to having input from the Hillhurst Sunnyside community to advance this project. In coordination with the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association, a Community Information Session is scheduled for the evening of September 15th, from 6:00-8:30, at the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Hall. The information session is open to all community members. Information about the vision for the redevelopment project, conversations with community groups held to date, and upcoming community engagement events will be shared with attendees.
