The West Rossdale area offers a unique combination of history and proximity to the river, downtown and the Legislature Grounds. The West Rossdale Urban Design Plan sets the vision for the integration of a diverse neighbourhood with significant symbols, amenities and functions.
As part of an interdisciplinary team lead by Carlyle & Associates, ParioPlan conducted extensive workshops and meetings with key stakeholder groups such as the Rossdale Community League. This consultation allowed the team to develop a vision that is appropriate for West Rossdale. The Urban Design Plan includes an illustrative development concept and design guidelines that will help achieve the vision. In addition to the design guidelines, the Plan recommends a series of strategic public realm improvements to enhance the area and give it the character it deserves as the main entry to downtown Edmonton from the south. The Plan also provides implementation recommendations.
