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.
20-year vision for an inner-city transformation
With a buildout spanning two decades, the East Village Master Plan entails a ground-up overhaul and revitalization of the entire neighbourhood.
A crucial foundation for a neighbourhood’s rebirth
To catalyze redevelopment, we’ve invested $396 million into key infrastructure improvements—utilities and streetscapes, parks and plazas, bridges and underpasses and so much more.
Approaching a tenfold return on investment
To date, CMLC’s investment into East Village infrastructure has spurred private investment totalling upwards of $3 billion.
Imagining a neighbourhood people are proud to call home
The East Village Master Plan envisions a neighbourhood with 11,500 residents in 7,500 homes supported by 300,000 sq ft of retail space.
