The property is located in the South West quadrant of the City of Calgary on the corner of Old Banff Coach Road and 85th Street SW in the community of West Springs. West Springs is characterized by low density residential development with a commercial node along 85th Street. Over the past eight years, 22 landowners, with a combined total of 110 acres of land, have updated the existing Area Structure Plan with the assistance of CITYTREND. Following the approval of the new policy, CITYTREND initiated the Rezoning and Master Planning of the subject site.
The project consist of five acres of land with a total of approximately 50,000 square feet of development.
The intersection of Old Banff Coach Road and 85th Street SW was the focus of the site Master Plan design. The intersection generates a great amount of vehicular traffic and visibility. The objective was to maximize visibility of the site and maintain a strong built edge along the roads. With a park on the south east portion of the site, a clear and effective sidewalk system was added to connect pedestrians internally and with the regional pathway system.
