RIVERS DISTRICT MASTER PLAN
Envisioned as Calgary’s Culture & Entetainment District - CMLC’s 20-year vision for east Victoria Park calls for a mixed use community that will be home to 8000 new residents and 4 million square feet of new mixed use development space. The Rivers District Master Plan has been designed to be flexible enough to imagine and integrate modernized amenities like a new event centre, an expansion of the BMO Centre, and the delivery of a Stampede Trail retail destination. As the development progresses, the plan and community will accommodate and support a variety of entertainment and cultural amenities.
To further examine the potential for the Rivers District, Calgary Economic Development (CED) commissioned a study through the Event Centre Assessment Committee (ECAC), to understand the potential total economic impact for the Rivers District. The report, completed in January 2019, looks at three mega projects being considered in the district including BMO Expansion, proposed Event Centre and Arts Commons Transformation.
