The City of Edmonton approved the West Rossdale Urban Design Plan (UDP) and Area Redevelopment Plan in an effort to guide the development of a vibrant, livable and pedestrian-friendly community in Edmonton’s River Valley. ISL Engineering and Land Services was retained to develop the concept and design plans for the street and public realm features. The presentation will describe the concept plans that were completed as well as the process that was followed. The process leading up to the concept plan completion highlighted the challenges and opportunities afforded by different design philosophies and approaches.
