Sorry I meant more that the city should force new developments on any empty lots in the CBD to have residential included. I know that wouldn't work probably, but it sure would be niceAll of the districts for the downtown core do allow for residential uses. For instance, the Oxford site next to this proposal is zoned CR20-C20/R20 Commercial - Residential Core. And as per the City's Land Use Bylaw, found at lub.calgary.ca, The CR20-C20/R20 designation is for high-rise, high-density development with a mix of commercial, residential and cultural uses within the Downtown.
They do... sort of. It's the same density bonuses that everybody gets for things that benefit public interest, the environment, etc.That makes sense to me. Just out of curiosity, why doesn't COC do that?
