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.

St. Patrick's Island

With CMLC’s redevelopment of St. Patrick’s Island and drawing rapidly to a close, the park’s opening in summer 2015 will surely be one of the year’s highlights for Calgarians.

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.

//Projects In Progress

Heritage Buildings

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

//Projects In Progress

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.

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 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.

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. view pdf

Cecil Hotel

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.  

//Future Projects

3rd street se streetscape

In 2015, CMLC will work with our prime design consultant to connect, both visually and physically, the urban realm around the New Central Library with 3rd Street SE.

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.
