Ward 11 News: The Windsor Development - Elbow Dr and 50 Ave SW

  • Share

Ward 11 official website

In the coming month, Arlington Street Investments will begin construction of The Windsor. It is located on the southeast corner of Elbow Drive and 50 Avenue SW, and will be comprised of retailers on the main floor and office tenants on floors 2 to 5.


As part of the developer’s ongoing commitment to the communities of Windsor Park, Britannia and Elboya, they are using the City of Calgary Guidelines contained within the “Practical Guide for Construction Sites in the City of Calgary” as a way to continue their good relationship with the communities and their direct neighbours.

Timing of Activities


Demolition of the existing buildings and installation of the retaining wall (secant wall) for the parkade will begin on the site in November. Excavation will commence shortly thereafter. Construction will take approximately 24 to 36 months. A construction schedule will be communicated once it is finalized, and will include advanced notice of significant interruptions, for example: demolition events, shoring, excavation, etc.


Site Management and Traffic


During this time, many different trades will be visiting the site. There will be an area for deliveries; however, at various times deliveries may occur from different side of the site depend on materials and access. Temporary lane closures will be obtained and traffic signage erected as needed, with permission from The City of Calgary.


Lane Closures


The project may require lane closures and these instances will be communicated to the community on their primary project sign board, positioned on the site fencing. Lane closures will be illustrated graphically on this sign and contact names and numbers will also be provided.


My office will continue to keep you updated on this project as we receive updates from the developer.
