Anthem Memorial Developments Ltd. submitted a Development Permit (DP 2016-0856) on March 7, 2016 to construct a five storey multi-residential building in Hillhurst. To date, the applicant has engaged the Hillhurst/Sunnyside Community Association and neighbouring residents on the proposed development.

The City of Calgary is reviewing a proposal from Rositch Hemphill Architects ​representing Anthem Memorial Developments Ltd. to construct a five storey multi-residential building in Hillhurst.

The proposed development is situated on Memorial Drive NW, which is a designated parkway, and is adjacent to the Kensington Riverside Inn to the east, a three-storey residential building to the west, and mid-rise commercial use buildings to the north sharing the laneway. The subject site is also situated within a 600 metre (5 to 10 minute) walking distance of both the Hillhurst/Sunnyside and Downtown West LRT stations.
