First store openings anticipated for late 2018. Trinity has submitted the first development permit application to The City of Calgary for the south portion of the Town Centre. 

The Town Centre is the development area closest to Sarcee Trail. The proposal includes main street retail facing Na’a Drive with residential above. Further south, Calgarians will be able to shop at larger retail stores, including Save-On-Foods. Save-On was announced earlier this year as an anchor tenant for the development.

Customers will be able to choose between surface and underground parking to access their favourite stores. Trinity is targeting the second quarter of 2017 to begin construction with store openings anticipated in the third quarter of 2018.

Work has also begun on preparing drawings for the second phase of development on the east half of the Gateway Centre located at the new Bowfort Road interchange, near Canada Olympic Park. The proposal will include restaurants, retail, a fitness centre and will be anchored by the outdoor lifestyle store MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op). 

The majority of parking will be structured either above or below grade with additional opportunities for on-street parking. The proposal will include a bridge linking both east and west halves of the Gateway Centre over Canada Olympic Drive. Submission of the development permit application is expected in early 2017.

Sarcee Interchange on track for full completion by fall 2017

Construction on the Sarcee Trail – TransCanada Highway (TCH) Interchange is ongoing with no permanent full road closures anticipated over the winter season.

Over the winter there will be a decrease of roadwork activity and temporary lane closures will be minimized until the spring.

The new northbound to eastbound ramp is now open. The new east and west bridges require only the finishing surface treatment and are expected to open with the northbound and southbound by-pass ramps in spring 2017.

Full project completion is targeting Fall 2017.

Bowdale Crescent traffic changes

In response to discussions with the community of Wilson Gardens, regarding the current construction access onto Sarcee Trail – TCH , the project team has made the following improvements:

  • The currently designated community exit location was relocated to the final, ultimate location and allows residents to leave the community without conflicting with vehicles entering the community as of December 2, 2016. The community entrance location will remain in the same location.
  • A deceleration lane will be added to the current ‘U-turn’ on Sarcee to ensure normal flow of traffic is maintained while allowing vehicles to slowly leave the main roadway prior to accessing the turning area.
