Glenmore Landing Redevelopment Proposal
Glenmore Landing - project information
On February 9, 2015 City Council directed City staff to explore a comprehensive plan for the redevelopment of the Glenmore Landing shopping centre and potential sale and use of surrounding City-owned lands. In response to this direction, the City has identified a two stage process that includes:
- The potential sale of City-owned lands surrounding the existing Glenmore Landing Shopping Centre; and,
- An Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment application that considers the comprehensive redevelopment of the site.
Potential sale of city-owned lands
The proposed sale of the City-owned lands will be advertised with an opportunity for the public to provide comments.
Outline plan and land use amendment application
The owner of the Glenmore Landing Shopping Centre, RioCan, has submitted an outline plan and land use amendment application to The City of Calgary. The application includes the shopping centre property and the adjacent City-owned land.
The City of Calgary is reviewing the application and will accept public comments until Nov. 13, 2023.

Frequently asked questions
The Notice of Motion was passed February 9, 2015. It directs The City and RioCan, the owner of the Glenmore Landing shopping centre and developer, to use The City’s Explore planning approach to inform a comprehensive plan for redevelopment. The City has formed a project team to respond to this Notice of Motion.
The Notice of Motion directs The City and RioCan to look at how a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) station can be integrated into the shopping centre with a focus on mixed-use, transit-oriented development (TOD). RioCan is looking at the possibility of redeveloping the site, which could include housing options and services.
Council also directed City staff to look at the sale of surplus City-owned lands to be included in the developer’s comprehensive plan for redevelopment, including opportunities for non-market housing. The lands are located between the shopping centre and 90 Avenue and 14 Street S.W.
The City’s role in this project is to review the land use amendment and comprehensive plan for redevelopment from a policy perspective. This ensures alignment with the Municipal Development Plan, Calgary Transportation Plan and other relevant Council objectives and priorities.
Please see the development map page for more information and to share your feedback on the application.
Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use form of development.
Typically, a TOD site:
- Is within 600-metres of a transit station.
- Mixes commercial, residential and/or office uses.
- Focuses on creating a place where people can live, work, shop and play.
- Is pedestrian-oriented.
- Supports alternative travel options like cycling and transit.
These developments take advantage of investments The City has made in transit infrastructure.
Mixed-use developments include:
- Office and/or residential uses with ground floor commercial and retail.
- Possible restaurants and other services on the ground floor.
- Reduced distances between housing, workplaces and retail businesses.
Non-market housing is long-term, stable and affordable housing provided to persons who qualify based on their household income, at rents below market levels. The Notice of Motion, approved by Calgary City Council, requires that a comprehensive plan for redevelopment include the opportunity for non-market housing within the future development.
- CPC is a committee appointed annually by City Council.
- It makes recommendations to City Council on land use planning matters.
- CPC will assess the comprehensive plan for redevelopment.
- They forward their report on the comprehensive plan for redevelopment, along with their recommendation, to City Council.
- Council is required to hold a public hearing before making the final decision on the plan.
