Project Details: MacKenzie Village
MacKenzie Village, Revelstoke, BC (multi-family residences)
The MacKenzie Village development is proposed on 14.4 hectares of land located in the Arrow Heights neighbourhood of Revelstoke. The property is located on the north side of Nichol Road between Arrow Heights Elementary School and Hay Road. The development will include a variety of residential housing types and an area of mixed uses with residential units above commercial units. The current proposal is to develop approximately 1,200 residential strata units with a limited number of commercial units adjacent to Nichol Road.
Mackenzie Village Sustainable Neighbourhood Plan
Selkirk Planning & Design was hired to develop a neighbourhood plan for three parcels of land located within Revelstoke. The neighbourhood encompasses 14 ha of land within the City of Revelstoke. The mixed use neighbourhood plan involves several innovative design pieces including: passive solar orientation, green streets & stormwater management, and biomass district energy. The neighbourhood is designed around a mixed use/commercial node that will provide local commercial and retail services. The housing options range from small bachelor apartments, to townhouses, to apartment houses, to duplexes and single-family residences, providing a mix of housing options for young and old, wealthy and low-income. The plan preserves existing trees and slope and is linked with a series of greenways rather than roads. Road design is considered as well, keeping roads narrow, pulling buildings closer to the street to enhance the streetscape, and reducing costs by keeping asphalt and paving to a minimum.
This project also examined the fiscal impact of this development, compared with a standard development style and found significant savings in capital and long-term operating/maintenance costs for both the developer and for the City.
The project was approved by Council in 2016 and Phase 1 was completed in late 2017.
Development of MacKenzie Village is proposed in twelve (12) phases, as shown above. The phase boundaries correspond with the proposed internal roads and the proposed Subzones (not shown here).
