Welcome home to East Village, Calgary’s most livable, walkable, playable urban village. At Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), we have built East Village to be the place where you belong. We’ve created welcoming streetscapes and built easy connections to the rest of Calgary. We’ve designed great outdoor recreational spaces like RiverWalk and St. Patrick’s Island. We’ve established a vibrant public arts program and built a lively year-round events calendar right into your neighbourhood. We’ve restored the Simmons Building to be a gastronomic destination. And we will continue to make East Village the kind of energetic and neighbourly community that you’ll want to be part of. This portal will help keep you informed of the latest news in East Village and answer your questions, as they arise, on happenings in the community.
Some changes are inevitable as East Village continues to build up. New pedestrian lane openings, road closures, parking interruptions and service outages are all updates that you need to know about. Stay informed on all the latest in construction activities.
East Village has become famous for its vibrant calendar of events and community activities. Being an East Villager means that you have a year-round calendar of events happening at your doorstep.
CMLC manages all public spaces within East Village (including RiverWalk, 5th Street Square and St. Patrick’s Island), and our dedicated events and activation team works year-round to deliver a robust calendar of community events and programs in East Village.

EVNA represents the interests of the neighbourhood’s long-time residents and businesses, holds annual events including a street fair, assists with programming in the Golden Age Club and provides many other services. CMLC is an active member of EVNA, attending meetings to bring East Village residents up to date on development news and issues, ensuring long-time residents feel welcome in the rapidly evolving neighbourhood. CMLC and EVNA worked hand-in-hand to support the neighbourhood’s most vulnerable populations during the 2013 floods, which impacted the older residential towers.
East Village is active on various social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Follow us to stay up to date on events, construction updates and real-time road closures that effect you.

CMLC is the master developer of East Village and since 2007 has invested over $357 million into infrastructure development within the community. Our work has built streetscapes, bridges and an underpass and developed all of EV's public spaces like RiverWalk and St. Patrick's Island. While CMLC manages the bulk of all road construction in the community, there are occasions when road closures will be in place to accomodate building site construction or general infrastructure improvements. If you have a concern please contact CMLC.
