Edmonton, AB (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Rohit Land Development is thrilled to announce that on March 25th the revised Area Structure Plan (ASP) for the up and coming Cambrian neighbourhood in Sherwood Park, Alberta was unanimously approved by all the voting Strathcona County Council members. Thank you to the Strathcona County council members and administration who worked with Rohit Land Development to support this plan coming to fruition and to the Strathcona County residents we consulted to ensure their needs and desires were represented in the changes.
The previous ASP was adjusted to increase the residential capacity of Cambrian, located in the urban service area just north of Yellowhead Trail on Clover Bar Road, providing a solution to the decreasing supply of developable land in Sherwood Park – the third best place to live in Canada according to Money Sense Magazine. This development will ensure a continued lot supply in Sherwood Park, allowing existing residents the opportunity to relocate within their community and also provides affordable options for first time buyers to stay within the community they grew up in and love.
The ASP also focuses on the unique location of Cambrian by providing residents the luxury of benefitting from the highest percentage of neighbourhood open space in Sherwood Park including access to the Old Man Creek park and trail system that will run through the community. Adding a school site to the ASP along with being located only minutes away from Emerald Hills Commercial Centre and the new Strathcona Community Hospital, will have Cambrian residents close to services and amenities. In addition to those offsite amenities, the Cambrian plan incorporates significant opportunity for walkable neighbourhood commercial services.
This complete community will feature a broad mix of housing ranging from ravine estate homes to entry level affordable housing and all products in between. Russell Dauk, VP of Land Development and Commercial for Rohit Group of Companies states that “Rohit envisions a community that will appeal to a wide array of residents as we have included all aspects of the housing market in one community. From new home buyers to retirees, we will have something for everyone in a master-planned community.” This will all lead to a population of over 11,000 people in this diverse neighbourhood. The community will be self-sustainable with a variety of housing, commercial, business employment, parks, schools, and mixed use commercial areas that will create a balance of live, work, and play.
Russell further acknowledges the importance of this approval and the anticipation that has come with it. “This revised Cambrian Area Structure Plan is one of the most detailed plans I have worked on over my 20 plus years in the industry. I am extremely proud of the design that evolved and with this approval; Cambrian is one step closer to coming alive, as we work towards our goal of servicing the first stage in 2015.”
