Rundle Manor redevelopment

​​​​​​

Project Background

On June 30, 2021, Calgary Housing Company will close the Rundle Manor residential complex. While Rundle Manor is a valuable asset in the provision of affordable housing, it is no longer practical to make major investments into the 40-year-old complex. Calgary Housing Company plans to develop new, modern affordable housing on the site.

The site meets key criteria The City of Calgary uses to select sites for affordable housing, including nearby community amenities like groceries, transit, schools, parks and recreation areas.

The City of Calgary is undertaking a feasibility study to determine the best way to design and operate new affordable housing in Rundle to ensure long-term sustainability.

With one in five Calgary households struggling to pay for housing costs, this redevelopment is part of The City’s direction to ensure that low-income Calgarians have a safe, stable place to call home in all neighbourhoods across the city.

Location

Rundle Manor is located at 4225 26 Avenue N.E. Upon closing in June 2021, Calgary Housing Company plans to demolish the existing complex to make way for the new affordable housing.


Communication and Engagement

The City of Calgary is committed to working with the Rundle Community and will communicate with the public and businesses about the redevelopment on an ongoing basis.

The community will be engaged on September 25, 2019 and online as The City of Calgary undertakes a feasibility study to determine the best way to design and operate new affordable housing in Rundle to ensure long-term sustainability.

Upon approval of full project funding, The City will hold robust engagement with the community and encourages residents to participate in the design process.

The property is being closed because it is no longer practical to make major investments that will be required later in 2021. After the closure, Calgary Housing Company intends to demolish the property to allow for redevelopment. The property is currently safe and meets standards – the closure is related to high operating costs and decisions around future investments, not problems with current conditions.

CHC is working with our partners at The City, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and the Province to move forward on redevelopment for affordable housing. We are currently pursuing feasibility plans to move this process forward. It is CHC’s goal to have this property redeveloped as a modern, mixed-income affordable housing development that will meet the needs both of those seeking housing assistance and the community as a whole.
