Louise Station and Solaire Towers
Client LaCaille Groupe / City of Calgary | Location Calgary, AB | Size 23,940m2 | Completion 2010
A multi-functional live / work solution unlike anything built before.
The Louise Station and Solaire Towers development is a public-private partnership between The City of Calgary and a private developer. This development is a new type of venture for The City of Calgary, presenting an opportunity for a municipal, multiple purpose building composed of affordable and market housing, a Fire / EMS Station, and small commercial retail units.
The two separate housing towers rise from the podium and contain the affordable (11 storeys - Louise Station) and market (18 storeys - Solaire) housing. The development provides separate entrances for the market and affordable housing, and separate amenity community and gathering space for the two residential and two retail developments on site.
This is a comprehensive redevelopment that maximizes the potential of City owned property and reflects an integral development which is the cornerstone of smart growth.
