Council Makes Decision on Crowsnest Crossing Site Options

Option 1 (above) Flexible & Targeted Model for Travel, Recreation & Economic Development

In the spring of 2020, Council approved to proceed with a comprehensive marketing strategy for the remaining lands of the Crowsnest Crossing site.

With the Hotel Study and the Retail and Commercial Market Gap Analysis complete, the next step is to complete some concept designs and then this will be packaged up and a commercial broker will be retained to sell the property.

Two new concepts have been explored along with the original concepts prior to moving ahead with this project. The concepts have tried to integrate the various pieces of the site including existing accesses and the pathway. The two new concepts also considered future access alignments and specific lot configurations to maximize efficiency for lot design and building arrangements.

The third option, which shows the original concept, is for comparison purposes and shows the most likely scenario if the lots were sold individually.

All of the options include a 2-acre site for a hotel, which was the size that was advised from the hotel study.

Council made the decision to go with option number one.

Mayor Painter says council felt it was the best layout for the space.

"We chose option one. We thought that it was the best possible plan we could come up with. It had good continuity through the site and connecting to the Crowsnest Landing Site to the Mac's Store and the Tim Hortons. We also liked where it came out onto 107 Street across from the hospital, which makes good sense. Overall, we saw it as our best option."

The decision by council to choose option one was unanimous.
