East village

In 2007, city council created CMLC and sent us forth with the ambitious mandate to revitalize the Rivers District and, in particular, the neighbourhood of East Village. Since that time, progress has been rapid.

New central library

For its New Central Library, the City of Calgary chose a prime location: one block east of City Hall in the burgeoning cultural hotspot of East Village.

Public Art

Public art and a vibrant cultural scene make a neighbourhood more inviting, more engaging and ultimately more desirable as a place to live.

ST. PATRICK'S ISLAND

CMLC’s redevelopment of St. Patrick’s Island was completed in July 2015. Since its reopening, the park has become a gathering place for Calgarians and visitors alike.

//Completed Projects

st. Patrick's Bridge

A crucial link in the vision for East Village, the new St. Patrick’s Bridge is a key connector for Calgarians entering East Village and Calgary’s core from Bridgeland, Sunnyside and other neighbourhoods north of the Bow River. 

//Completed Projects

Elbow River Traverse

A river is a beautiful thing, so it’s hardly surprising that Calgary’s first neighbourhood – East Village – took root at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. Of course, when it comes to moving people in and out of Calgary’s core, rivers pose significant obstacles. And that’s why a bridge is also a beautiful thing.

4th Street Underpass

A vital link from East Village to the Beltline communities and Stampede Park, the 4th Street SE Underpass opened to traffic on November 1, 2011, after more than three years of planning and construction. 

//Completed Projects

RiverWalk™ Stage 1

Embracing the Bow River and celebrating its rich history, RiverWalk™ is the true soul of the Rivers District. 

//Completed Projects

5th Street Square

Located at the intersection of 7th Avenue and 5th Street SE, this urban space incorporates a diagonal pedestrian route – “the Riff” – with connections to other pedestrian paths in East Village.

//Completed Projects

6th Street Edges

The Fort Calgary Edges landscaping project was designed to create a respectful delineation between East Village – an urban residential and commercial village – and Fort Calgary, a national historic site and unique open space in the city.

//Completed Projects

Streetscaping & Infrastructure

When CMLC embraced the challenge of redeveloping East Village in 2007, we knew infrastructure improvements would be crucial catalysts for public and private sector investment and development.

//Completed Projects

Urban Squares

Woven purposefully into the East Village master plan are three urban squares: 5th Street Square, Celebration Square and Crossroads, each designed to nurture human connections and offer escape from the dizzying pace of daily life. 

//Completed Projects

Heritage Buildings

Though few in number, the historic buildings in East Village are big in character. The colourful histories of the Simmons Building, Hillier Block, St. Louis Hotel and King Edward Hotel add a compelling dimension to the neighbourhood’s personality.

Future Plans

CMLC was created to implement infrastructure improvements in the Rivers District. The varied and complex projects we've undertaken since 2007 range from raising the East Village floodplain to the construction of RiverWalk to master planning St. Patrick’s Island. While we've completed most major infrastructure projects, the CMLC team continues to fulfil important infrastructure mandates and assess future projects within the area. Click on link to view larger map.

Cecil Hotel

In 2015, the Cecil Hotel was demolished after two due diligence investigations. The site is now being prepared for future development opportunities.  

//Future Projects

3rd street se public realm

In 2016, CMLC will undertake detailed design work on the 3rd street SE Public realm with construction of this multi-phased development expected to begin by the end of the year.

//Future Projects

riverwalk stage 2

Extending our much-celebrated riverside promenade past 9th Avenue SE to Victoria Park, RiverWalk Stage 2 will add two more kilometres to the pedestrian and cycling pathway described in the 2008 RiverWalk Master Plan.

West Village

In November 2015, CMLC announced they will assist the City of Calgary by conducting environmental evaluation of West Village. As the fully redeveloped and revitalized East Village now rises skyward, CMLC is assisting the City of Calgary by providing a comprehensive investigation and assessment of the extent of the environmental contamination of West Village in order to determine if the community can be transformed into a vibrant mixed-use neighbourhood.

//Future Projects

Broader Rivers DistricT

In 2016, CMLC will expand our focus to unlock placemaking potential in the broader Rivers District area.
