East Village Master Plan

An ambitious vision for bringing East Village back to life

The East Village Master Plan is guiding our exciting redevelopment of Calgary’s original neighbourhood.


From riverside blight to riverside delight.

Crafted in collaboration with London’s Broadway Malyan and inspired by some of the world’s most liveable and loveable places, the master plan sets out a vision for East Village’s redevelopment into a vibrant, mixed-use, creative city neighbourhood. In the 15 years since the plan was unveiled, East Village’s population has grown to 4,000, and CMLC’s infrastructure investment of around $400 million has attracted private investment of almost $3 billion.
