McLean Avenue Development


M Richard & Associates has been retained to assist with the engagement process for a new development on McLean Ave in Selkirk MB. We are excited to present the vision for a new 5-storey, multi-family building. 

We invite you to spend 5-10 minutes reviewing the project details and to provide feedback or share your support for the project.

Site Overview

The properties are located on the north side of McLean Ave, between Eveline St. and Main St., and just south of Extra Foods and the mall. The land is situated on the edge of the downtown boundary and is designated for mixed use in the Selkirk Development Plan.

The 0.87-acre (38,017 sq. ft.) site is comprised of five (5) lots:

  • 223 McLean Avenue, an existing two-storey residential dwelling

  • 219 McLean Avenue, an existing one-and-a-half-storey residential dwelling

  • 215 McLean Avenue, vacant

  • unaddressed parcels, vacant

Surrounding Context

Why here?

The surrounding area offers an abundance of community amenities and retail options that serve the greater community and the city at large. The area is walkable and bikeable, in proximity to an array of retail and services to meet daily essential needs. It gives easy access to much of the entertainment and economic area of Selkirk and is very close to public green spaces and riverfront access.

Proposed Development

The vision for the site is to consolidate all properties and to rezone to “R3” Zoning District to provide a new multi-family residential building. A five (5) story apartment building with 75 dwelling units (1 and 2- bedroom suites) will be constructed on the north side of McLean. Residential units are located on floors two to five. The interior parking is hidden behind the main floor walls with windows. Different facade materials are being used to break up the wall from an aesthetic perspective. Amenity spaces are located within the building and a top-floor patio will be available to residents.

Building Elevation

The building has been designed to include a step back top floor on the south side of the building to reduce the scale to adjacent neighbours.

Shadow Study

A shadow evaluation was undertaken to assess the impact of the proposed development on the surrounding areas. In undertaking and evaluating potential shadows on the site and surrounding areas, the Spring Equinox and the Summer and Winter Solstice were used in the assessment. The shadow study indicates that there will be little to no impact on the homes on the south side of McLean. 


Next Steps  

  • Review all feedback and make any necessary changes

  • A formal development application will be submitted to the City of Selkirk.

  • The submission of an application will include a public hearing. The date is yet to be determined.
