Saunders Evans Architects Inc. was commissioned in Spring 2004
to prepare this Design Plan for the City of Saskatoon and to recommend
specific architectural controls for the areas collectively known
as South Downtown. These areas are those specifically encompassed
by the DCD1 zoning district. Geographically, these lands are those
south of 19th Street between Avenue C on the west and Broadway Bridge
on the east. The study area includes the former A. L. Cole Power
Plant site at the south end of Avenue B, the former Gathercole site
at the south end of 2nd Avenue, the current Meewasin Valley Authority
office, and Friendship Park.
The architectural controls within this document are intended to
guide developers in creating a strong sense of identity and place,
as described in the South Downtown Concept Plan 2004 document. A
copy of the concept plan found within this document is attached
in Appendix A. Should this concept plan change, architectural guidelines
found within this Design Plan may have to be modified to suit.
