Revitalizing a historic neighbourhood 

CLIENT Confidential
LOCATION Calgary, AB
SIZE 14,343m2
COMPLETION Ongoing

Located in the community of Crescent Heights and within the Bridgeland Area Redevelopment Plan, the development has 4 important edges that required sensitive design solutions. The design goals were to create:

  1. An engaging pedestrian-scale commercial face along 4th Street. 
  2. An integrated residential streetscape facing Marsh Road. 
  3. A residential streetscape on the 1st Ave face.
  4. A private residential courtyard along the west edge of the property to provide a transition between the adjacent residences and townhomes.

The driving factor for the building orientation and design was to create a development that created a natural transition between the residential development to the west and the commercial development to the east. This was achieved by placing the lower density development (townhouses) to the west, and high-density development (tower) to the east.

Of equal importance was to create a plaza that bridged the interface between Crescent Heights and Bridgeland. The development provides a landscaped plaza on the NE corner of the site, directly adjacent to the crosswalk from 1st avenue that has been envisioned as a gathering space for the surrounding communities.
