East Village Place Community Space Engagement

We’ve asked for your ideas on how to bring the community space at East Village Place to life. We want to create a space for you to meet your neighbours, make new friends and participate in local events and activities.

Thanks for your input

From August 10 - September 21, we asked for your input on the East Village Place Community Space project. Thank you for submitting your ideas for the new community space at East Village Place (610 - 8 Avenue S.E.).

View the Engagement and Analysis report summarizing the feedback we received through online and in-person engagement.

The input from the community has been incorporated by Calgary Housing Company (CHC) as it works with potential partners to develop the community space. A Request for Information (RFI) was closed in early March and CHC is now reviewing these submissions to determine next steps. The RFI was an opportunity for interested organizations to outline how they might use the space to meet needs including those identified by members of the community.

About the project

On June 30, 2016, Calgary Housing Company became the new owner of East Village Place (750 5 St. S.E.).

East Village Place refers to both the 163 apartments and the approximate 23,000 square feet of community space on the first two floors.

The intent of the Calgary Housing Company and The City of Calgary is to develop the first two floors of the building for community use. As part of the plan’s development, The City would like to collaborate with local residents to hear their ideas on how they’d like to see that space used.
