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.
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. view pdf
In 2015, CMLC will purchase the Cecil Hotel site from the City of Calgary and work to assess its heritage value and its development potential within the context of our master plan vision for East Village. Public engagement and communications will follow this process as we identify opportunities for the Cecil Hotel site's next stage of life.
