Rosedale Affordable Housing Development

The design process

In September 2016, City Council approved the funding and development of new single detached homes on eight City owned properties adjacent to 16 Avenue N.W. in Rosedale. The development is expected to provide up to 16 affordable homes for Calgarians.

Two community design workshops were held in early December for Calgarians to provide input into the design process and share ideas directly with the design-build team. For anyone who was unable to attend the workshops, an online tool was made available from Dec. 5 – Dec. 22, 2017 to gather input for the Rosedale affordable housing design process.

A "What we Heard" report detailing the feedback received, can be viewed now. This information was utilized to guide the design development and a “What we did” report will be posted online in Summer 2018.

Next steps

The project is now entering the Development Permit approval stage. Development Permit applications are being submitted with all 8 targeted for submission by the end of June. The platform for residents to provide additional feedback will be through the regular Development Permit approval process. For more information, please visit

A preview of the proposed developments are listed below. Additional previews will be added throughout June 2018.

Design-build team

Eco Coatings & Exteriors, a subsidiary of Sherger Construction Ltd., was selected for the design-build through the Request For Proposal(s) process to lead construction on the units. Eco Coatings & Exteriors is a Calgary-based company that has a solid team of inhouse skilled trades, managers and professionals including licensed designers and engineers.

The architect for the project is FAAS (Formed Alliance Architecture Studio), a Calgary-based firm that has over 70 years of collective experience working on project types including industrial, educational, healthcare, residential, commercial, mixed use, institutional as well as large-scale infrastructure and master planning projects.

Community engagement

Since March 2015, The City of Calgary has worked with the Rosedale Community Association encouraging residents to participate in the process. Past efforts include community association meetings, reports back to the community, block-by-block street consultations, and updates at community association annual general meetings.
