Ward 1 News: Calgary West and Shape Properties

  • Share

Ward 1 official website

The City of Calgary is studying possible future land uses along the Trans-Canada Highway (16 Avenue N.W.), west of Canada Olympic Park. The area is partially developed with the communities of Valley Ridge, Greenwood/Greenbriar and Crestmont, but it also contains a significant amount of undeveloped land.

Please note that this development is contingent on the upgrade of the Valley Ridge Interchange. Only with the upgraded infrastructure on Stoney Trail will there be development. The Alberta Government announced funding for the West Calgary Ring Road project on July 5, 2018. This is the last section of construction work needed to complete the Calgary Ring Road, which, when completed, will provide more than 100 km of free-flow travel around the city.


Construction is expected to start in 2019 and be completed in three parts:

– the north project (between Highway 1 and Old Banff Coach Road)
– the south project (between Old Banff Coach Road and Highway 8)
– twinning the bridge over the Bow River

Alberta Transportation is holding three public information sessions to answer questions about the project, and to explain strategies to minimize impacts for adjacent residents. For more information about the project, and to sign up for email updates, visit w-crr.ca.

In 2011, The City of Calgary received an Outline Plan/Land Use Amendment Application to redesignate (rezone) and subdivide lands located immediately to the east of the community of Crestmont, in southwest Calgary on the Trans-Canada highway. 
 
The proposal Calgary West, submitted by SHAPE properties, would allow for the development of 56.5 hectares of undeveloped land into a mix of natural green areas, retail/commercial, office and residential spaces, including approximately 1,000 multi-family homes, such as apartments, condominiums and townhouses. Prior to the application, the property was undeveloped. An easement across Shape’s site currently provides access to the Crestmont Community. The developer is proposing a mixed use community that integrates with the natural topography and the west entranceway into Calgary. The developer anticipates the construction of the initial phase would take three years to complete. This Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment Application were approved by City Council in November 2014.
