2019 Art Walk #SouthparkonWhyte Contest

Posted on:

This past weekend Southpark on Whyte hosted the 2019 Art Walk Street Art Contest. The contest took place July 5th through 7th and featured artwork from 10 artists. Artists had 3 days to turn a 4’x8′ sheet of plywood into a piece of art and the public was encouraged to vote using the artists handles at #SouthparkonWhyte.

The 10 boards installed on the construction fence, along 82 ave, will remain up as street animation and beautification.

A winner and runner up will be selected by tallying social engagement and posts laster this week and prizes for both first and second place winners will be awarded shortly thereafter.

We thank the artists for their participation, the Art Walk for the opportunity, and The Paint Spot for co-sponsoring the event.

Southpark on Whyte

This past Saturday, we held a public information event on Whyte Avenue to discuss the future of Southpark on Whyte. It was fantastic to see many new faces, and chat again with those of you who have attended past information events. Thank you to all who attended! We enjoyed meeting each of you.

We received great feedback regarding the project and look forward to incorporating your thoughts and ideas into our framework for the future development of the site.

While you’re here, check out our feature from Saturday’s event on Global News!

Development Vision

Posted on:

The hustle and bustle of vibrant Whyte Avenue attracts residents and visitors to gather and meander, taking in the diverse shops, restaurants, and bars that tie this area together. But on the south side of Whyte large swathes of parking around 106 street front on to the sidewalk, diming the energy of surrounding buildings and creating a barrier to safe and engaging movement down the street. The Wheaton Group with WAM Development Group is looking to reimagine the potential of these sites as a vibrant mixed-use development that will contribute to the unique character of Whyte Avenue and Old Strathcona.

Consisting of four sub-areas, the Southpark development includes commercial development along Whyte Avenue and residential development along 81st Avenue. Commercial retail development will reflect the scale of adjacent developments, providing opportunities for new businesses to join the Whyte Avenue community. Residential development will include townhouses with individual entrances on the bottom floors, with apartments in a tower tucked back from the street. Outside the doors of the new buildings improvements to the streetscapes will enhance the pedestrian experience, engaging the street and providing vibrancy.

At this time a rezoning application is submitted, to unite the four sub-areas under a single Direct Development Control Zone (DC1). The purpose of the DC1 zoning is to provide clarity and consistency of form and detail across all four development areas. The visual impact of the project will contribute to the vibrant surroundings of Old Strathcona, Queen Alexandra, and Whyte Avenue, and will knit these lots back together with the existing urban fabric.
