Anderson Station Transit Oriented Development (TOD)

​The vision for Anderson Station transforms an under-utilized development site into a true transit-oriented neighborhood that is integrated into the regional pathway network and provides lifestyle amenities to new residents, employees, and residents of surrounding communities.

The future of Anderson Station


In April 2018, the Anderson Station TOD Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment applications were approved at a public hearing of Council.

Anderson Station TOD is envisioned to become a true mixed use, transit-oriented neighbourhood within walking distance of the Anderson LRT station.

It is a comprehensively planned redevelopment site that will provide strong pedestrian and cycling linkages to surrounding communities and retail amenities.

The area is envisioned to buzz with people coming and going, where a range of daily needs is reachable within walking distance, and people socialize in beautiful public spaces.

Anderson Station Park and Ride Plan

On October 3 2016, City Council approved a new approach for the park and ride stall plan for Calgary Transit users at Anderson Station.
The Anderson Station Park and Ride Plan outlines a revised phasing strategy that would not reduce the number of parking stalls required by C-train users.
This strategy is based on a 2016 study which looked at the where park and ride users come from.
During redevelopment, stall numbers reduced at Anderson Station would be replaced at a future parkade at the Anderson TOD site, other southern Red Line stations and future Green Line LRT stations, resulting in a no net loss of park and ride stalls overall.

*Phase 5 can begin when Park and Ride stalls on the Green Line are available.
What does this mean for C-train users who currently use the park and ride stalls?
Council approved the Anderson Station Park and Ride Plan to ensure we don’t lose the total number of park and ride spaces used by C-train users. Reducing stalls at Anderson Station and increasing stalls at other C-train locations will be done at the same time to minimize disruption to C-train users.

A note about park and ride stalls at future Green Line stations: Park and ride stalls will remain available at Anderson Station to accommodate C-train riders from Green Line communities until the Green Line stations are built and can accommodate those park and ride stalls.

Public engagement and project history

On May 15 2014, over 600 people from various communities, ages and backgrounds, turned out at Southcentre Mall to view the latest concept of the Anderson TOD redevelopment project. The event offered Calgarians the opportunity to see proposed concept drawings detailing what Anderson could look like in the future.

Concepts were created using feedback from previous events, community association meetings, working with other City departments and discussions with recognized TOD experts. Following this information session, RE&DS submitted the formal Outline Plan and Land Use Amendment application in September 2014.
