Long-term vision

This station area has been identified for Transit Oriented Development (TOD). In 2015, Green Line worked with the community and developer stakeholders to create the Inglewood/Ramsay/26 Avenue S.E. Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Concept Plan. Highlights of the plan include a pedestrian-friendly retail shopping street on 11 Street S.E., similar to 9 Avenue S.E. This will revitalize one of Calgary’s oldest, historic communities. It will also support local businesses, entrepreneurs and the community.  

Between 9 Avenue S.E. and 26 Avenue S.E., there could be:

  • pedestrian amenities
  • trees and streetscape enhancements
  • bike lanes, roadway improvements
  • shopping and restaurants

See Green Line Southeast - Where we are & where we're going (2015) – page 20

New shopping, living and working options will attract new residents who wish to live and work in the area. The Historic East Calgary Area Redevelopment Plan will help guide redevelopment in Inglewood and Ramsay. Redevelopment projects will be careful to add to, rather than disturb, the community’s unique and historic qualities.
