Thank you to our visitors that dropped in at our first project open house on Monday, November 19th.

We appreciate the time you took to meet our team, ask questions and provide your input. We are now taking the time to carefully review what we heard and will develop and share a summary report.

Arlington Street Investments (ASI) has begun initial planning for its newly proposed Fishman’s Redevelopment Project (Fishman’s).

The Fishman’s site is located on the southeast corner of 17th Avenue SW and 5A Street SW, and once built, is envisioned to transform this prominent section of 17th Avenue. Fishman’s will:

While many aspects of the project are still being determined, ASI is considering two land use options for Fishmans:

  • Option 1: Mixed use and residential. Commercial and retail would reside on the main level with residential suites above.
  • Option 2: Seniors housing. Some commercial and/or retail would reside on the main level with seniors accommodations above.

The Process

ASI is preparing a Land Use Amendment (LUA) for Fishman’s, and intends to submit it to the City of Calgary (the City) prior to the end of 2018.  A LUA would allow ASI to change the land use district of the property to allow for the development option they eventually move forward with.

A public open house will be held prior to the end of 2018 to share more information about the project and details included in the application.

A Development Permit application will be submitted to the City sometime in the future, pending the progression of the LUA.


What is a Land Use Amendment?2018-09-12T17:17:32+00:00

A Land Use Amendment (LUA) is a planning application that is submitted to the City of Calgary to change the land use district of a property to allow for a particular development. It is also known as a land use redesignation. If approved, the LUA would allow the development of a comprehensive mixed-use building with commercial and residential units, or a boutique hotel with commercial at grade.

What is a Development Permit?2018-09-12T17:19:00+00:00

ASI will submit a Development Permit application during or after the LUA process. A development permit is a document that is reviewed by The City to ensure that a proposed project meets the criteria set-out in existing land use bylaws and other relevant policies. All applications will be reviewed side by side before a final decision is made.
