Who is CMLC, are you the City of Calgary?

CMLC is an independent, for-profit developer, created and owned by the City of Calgary. Our purpose it to achieve the City's objectives for urban densification and community renewal, infrastructure investment and placemaking.

Our first project was the revitalization of East Village and the broader Rivers District. With the expansion of our mandate approved by City Council in 2016, we now work throughout the City on projects ranging from master planned communities to the development of single buildings or significant public spaces. We are a passionate team of urban placemakers devoted to making Calgary a better place to live. Learn more about CMLC here.

The City of Calgary has announced the removal of Municipal Reserve on the David D. Oughton Site. What does this mean?

Removing the Municipal Reserve on the site is the most efficient and effective way for CMLC to acquire the current land in order to analyze, imagine and plan for its future use. Through the development process a portion of the land will be returned to the City and the Municipal Reserve reinstated.

Is the redevelopment of the DDO site part of the Southeast 17TH Avenue Corridor project?

The DDO site sits at the edge of the Southeast 17 Corridor concept plan area. While the area policies don’t apply to the DDO site, the project vision endeavours to realize the spirit of the SE 17TH Avenue Corridor Land Use and Urban design Concept.

Do you have a question about the redevelopment of the DDO you’d like answered? Please email and someone from our project team will be happy to reply.
