Rosedale Affordable Housing Development

Be part of 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. The design-build team has been selected and we are now entering the design phase of the project.

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.

Once the input has been gathered and compiled from the design workshops and the online tool, a “What we Heard” report will be posted online in late January/early February 2018 detailing the feedback received, along with next steps for the project.


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.

Representatives from Eco Coatings & Exteriors and FAAS Architecture will participate in the community design sessions.

Community engagement

The City of Calgary has been working together with the Rosedale Community Association since March 2015, 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. The development budget was approved by Council in Sept 2016. The City is now continuing to work with the community during the design process, and looks forward to receiving additional citizen input. The City will provide an update to Calgarians in early 2018 on the input received and how it will be integrated into the design.
