Early in 2015, CMLC secured the sale of a land parcel on the corner of 5th Street and 7th Avenue SE to Cidex Developments – the developer behind the highly successful trio of towers in Calgary’s Westgate Park (Ovation, Encore and Brava). Dubbed ‘The Hat’, the $100-million project broke ground in 2017 and was completed in September 2019, becoming the first residential rental development in East Village.
The Hat Project
The Hat is unique in East Village in that it offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units. The building also features the first commercial childcare facility in East Village, making downtown living even more accessible to Calgary families.
Totalling 236,000 sq ft, the 28-storey tower includes 221 units (66 one-bedroom and studio apartments, 123 two-bedroom units and 32 three-bedroom units), catering to Calgarians interested in the flexibility of rental living.
