FORMER DIOCESE OF QU'APPELLE PROPERTY

A study was conducted for the City of Regina and then, Saskatchewan Property Management Corporation (Ministry of Central Services) during 2000/01. The general objective of the study was to develop the optimum comprehensive relationship of uses for this 8.19 Hectare (20 acre) site, including the conservation and re-use of provincially designated buildings, new development, and amenity areas that integrated with and enhanced the site as a strategic location relative to achieving objectives of the "Regina Development Plan", which included the enhancement of downtown Regina, through increased residential population and promoting a compact urban form.

Saskatchewan Property Management Corporation, as owner of the site, had an interest in maximizing the value of the site, while recognizing the intrinsic value of the heritage buildings and character of the site respecting the principles of the Provincial Heritage Properties Act. We met with various stakeholder groups during the course of the study, and based on the numerous and various requirements of the stakeholders, the City of Regina, and public response at Public Open House presentations, we prepared a report with conceptual designs for the development of the site.

Infrastructure requirements were reviewed and recommendations were made relative to utility and underground services, proposed new streets and rights of way, vehicular accesses, pedestrian pathways and parking requirements. In addition, a marketing strategy was prepared for the timely development of the property in keeping with the comprehensive plan.

Subsequent to the study we were retained by a prospective developer to provide schematic design for the entire site based on an "age in place" development concept. The site was sold to another developer thus unfortunately, this concept was never realized.
