The Aurora Project consists of 2.886ha of land between 105th Avenue and 106th Avenue and within the area bounded by 104th Street and 101st Street. The area is currently part of Precinct C in the Central McDougal Community DC1, which was approved in December of 2005 by City Council. This submission supports an amendment to that DC1 regulation primarily to allow fewer, taller towers on the property based on the basic principal that a large consolidated parcel of land such as this allows the master planning of towers so that the same residential densities can be achieved while improving ground level open space and reducing the shadow density to the surrounding community.

Site Area: 2.886 ha
Total Number of Residential Units @ 500 units per ha; 1443 units
Density Zone 1: 2 towers (23 stories and 28 stories) and 1, 8 storey mid-rise
558 units
Density Zone 2: 1, 23 storey tower and 1, 3-5 storey low rise 247 units
Density Zone 3: 1, 17-storey tower 135 units
Density Zone 4: 1, 28 storey tower and 1, 3-5 storey low rise 282 units
Density Zone 5: 1, 25 storey tower and 1, 2-5 storey low rise 221 units
Commercial Area: Main floor, primarily along 102 street 25,000 sq.ft.
Parking: Underground with some surface parking for Commercial and visitors
Road closures: A portion on lane between 103rd St. and 102ndSt. A portion of 102nd St. that will be narrowed but remain open to public traffic.
