The company that took over the troubled Glenora Skyline condo project is expected to put in a rezoning application to the city of Edmonton Friday.
The move marks a new start for the luxury high rise that was abandoned in January 2014 after the previous developer Glenora Skyline Development ran into financial difficulties.

InHouse, a branch of Beaverbrook Developments, took possession of the project three months ago.
Ryan Smith with InHouse says the company has worked with community members on formulating a vision for the site.
"General feedback to date has been very positive," he said. "I think the community as a whole wants to see something move forward on this site as quick as possible."
The project at 142nd Street and Stony Plain Road became a major irritant for people who lived nearby. Concrete had been poured for only two floors. An unused crane towered over neighbourhood. Construction debris and trailers cluttered the site.
Mike Nicoll with the Glenora Community League is pleased to see InHouse has cleaned up the site.
"It's been great," he said.
"Really nice to see the traffic cleaned up, and the old weathered tarps disappear and the cranes gone and really looking forward to seeing something beautiful and collaborative take its place."
InHouse hopes to get construction started next year.
