Great Exposure to St.Albert Trail
This St. Albert development site is situated in a newer area close to excellent commercial amenities and arterial roads. It has direct access to St. Albert Trail and is in close proximity to the Sturgeon Hospital. Due to the high traffic flows along St. Albert Trail, proximity of commercial amenities, and the growing population in the area, the site is well suited for commercial development. Site access is currently available via a service road running parallel with Highway 2 southbound, and from Highway 2 northbound also accessing the service road. Highway 2 is a major highway in Alberta that stretches from the Canada–United States border through Calgary and Edmonton to Grande Prairie. Running primarily north to south for approximately 1,273 kilometers. The subject land is located in the Highway 2 Commercial Corridor which currently designates the land as Urban Reserve (UR), to ensure an orderly transformation to future urban expansion or intensification development. According to several supporting City of St. Albert planning documents (including future Area Structure Plan) and conversations with City Planners, the subject property will be rezoned as Highway Commercial zoning similar to lands to the south.
