Edmonton city council is considering adjusting resident zoning in some of its older, well-established neighbourhoods to increase infill housing.
The changes could see 50-foot lots being subdivided into 25-foot lots, encouraging a more diverse housing mix, including duplexes, triplexes, garden suites, garage suites, and so-called skinny homes.
One Edmonton developer predicts that potentially, doubling the number of lots in these more than 100 neighbourhoods could provide housing for at least 250,000 people.
Edmonton city council hopes to move 25% of its growth into the downtown area, these mature neighbourhoods, and along transit routes and hubs. The changes could also alter these areas demographically, as smaller homes can make housebuying more affordable for young families.
