For Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), the wise words of Confucius – “Study the past if you would define the future” – neatly encapsulate the company’s philosophy on redeveloping Calgary’s oldest inner-city neighbourhood, East Village.

As the developer responsible for breathing new life into Calgary’s downtown east end, CMLC has given enormous consideration to the neighbourhood’s historical and historically relevant buildings, eager to sustain the spirit and character of East Village’s proud past while preparing the assets for new generations of Calgarians to utilize and experience.
