Why does Zoning equate to Character?
A – Because so far in this precinct’s long and slowly evolved history, our single family detached ZONING has kept the scale, land use and pace of building within check; to that of single family homes built or renovated by residents one at a time with the intent to live amongst their neighbours with respect for each other. Zoning has ensured an EVOLUTION over a REVOLUTION.
It’s within this principal we’ve come to this outcome. We’ve achieved a beautiful, unique, eclectic and highly charactered place to live.
Save your zoning, and keep your character.

A neighbour of the St. Luke's Precinct has informed us that surveyors have been measuring the Dalewood Apartments property at 1367 Elgin Street.
Part or all if this property is owned by Maurice Desrochers development group / Executive Furnished Rentals. Desrochers has previously indicated a desire to rezone this property for 8 story condominiums.
A site rezone of this nature would mean a precedent rezone for the whole precinct.
Stay tuned for more information.
Confirmation from the city is that the developer is intending on building 2 detached single family homes. They have begun the first on the south most lot but have yet to propose a plan for the 2nd. This first house will conform to the current zoning and needs only minor variance approval.
