The 10 Street NW main street runs from Riley Park to Memorial Drive NW. The highly sought-after communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside form the east and west edge of the main street neighbourhood.


The area was originally settled in the 1880s and purchased by the City of Calgary in 1904. There has been a gradual shift in the community dynamics and demographics over the years. The two communities are presently home to more than 10,000 residents in what is now a well-designed mixed used development, popular for its historic charm and modern amenities. Development interest along the main street is expected to continue well into the future as the area attracts new residents and businesses.

What we've learned

To start developing solutions which ensure the future success of Calgary’s main street neighbourhoods, City planners listened and learned from main street users, neighbourhood residents, industry experts and economic specialists to understand the unique challenges and opportunities for growth and development in these areas.

What's next

All of the public input and discussion with experts throughout the project included one common concept; focus the effort of the Main Streets initiative work on a few key or strategic streets in the short term to maximize chances of success. By analysing local input, economic information and infrastructure investments, the Main Streets team identified which main streets are good candidates for development and growth in the near future.

Once that success has been tested, it will then be applied to main streets across Calgary as the timing for growth makes sense based on the unique needs of each street.

Based on all the information gathered, a series of proposed solutions have been created which would enable growth in main street areas that have been identified as ready for development. To learn more about the areas with rezoning options and Area Development Plan amendments being reviewed and considered for approval in the near future, visit the Main Streets' rezoning information page.
