Client: EAD Development Partnership, EAD Joint Venture
WSP is working closely with the owners, designers and legal counsel to prepare and submit both strata and conventional subdivision plans for the new arena and surrounding developments in downtown Edmonton, Alberta (the Ice District). The strata lots created provide for various uses from residential and commercial to hotel and office spaces. The project is ongoing with more future subdivision applications to be submitted over the development build-out.
The specific scope of services includes:
- Boundary surveys which involve certificate of title, document and plan searches;
- Determining the ultimate configuration of lots to be created;
- Preparation of tentative plans and their submittal to the approving authorities with all required documentation; and
- Assisting in the preparation of consent documents, discharges, encroachment agreements, right-of-ways, easements, covenants and restrictions documents and any exhibits that are within these documents. WSP submitted the plans and documents to Land Titles for registration.
The highly architectural details that define the district, and the resulting unique boundaries that define ownership, have required a specialized approach to both the methodology of registering individual interest and how we survey each boundary. From lease spaces and condominiums inside strata lots, to three dimensional (3D) easement definitions for specific utilities, the development truly uses all resources to create a space that meets the needs of the ownership group; City, tenants and the public.
