THE EAST IS RISING, BE A PART OF IT!
Share your vision for Calgary’s bold new culture and entertainment district
From the developers who brought East Village back to life, Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) is creating a master plan vision for east Victoria Park known as the Rivers District and has embarked on a city-wide public engagement effort, in partnership with the City of Calgary, to solicit ideas and feedback from Calgarians on the vision for a 21st century Cultural and Entertainment district in downtown Calgary’s east end.
With a draft of the master plan now complete, CMLC and The City of Calgary are conducting a joint public engagement process that will span across the city through multiple events and asking for feedback via an online survey. The City of Calgary is concurrently starting the process to amend the Beltline Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) to support the master plan vision.
East Victoria Park is a part of downtown Calgary, which includes Stampede Park and the BMO Centre, that has long stood as the city’s entertainment epicentre. Rather than reinvent it as something it simply isn’t, CMLC imagines east Victoria Park as a vibrant, high-density, mixed-use community that draws on the spirit of entertainment that resides in its DNA, as well as its natural surroundings. In east Victoria Park, there’s the opportunity to infuse new energy and new life into the district while attracting developers that respect the community’s history and envisioned future.
CMLC’s 20-year vision will result in four million square feet of mixed-use development and over 8,000 new residents moving into a vibrant community in Calgary’s downtown east side. Imagine new places to work and explore, modernized amenities like an arena facility and expanded BMO Centre, the Green Line LRT, diverse residential options with a spectrum of shopping and dining options… the list goes on.
