Infrastructure


Stoney Trail / Sarcee Trail Interchange

The City is working on an improvement project at the intersection of Stoney Trail and Sarcee Trail in the city’s northwest. These improvements will make the interchange safer, more efficient for all users and help reduce travel times for the movement of goods and for commuters traveling southbound on Sarcee Trail to eastbound Stoney Trail.

The interchange was originally designed to serve passenger vehicles, but an increasing number of large, commercial vehicles are using the interchange, causing…

16th Ave @ Bowfort Road Interchange

The recently completed reconstruction of the TransCanada Highway (TCH) interchange at Bowfort Road is a major upgrade to one of Calgary’s busiest roadways.  This location is traditionally viewed as a meeting point and starting point for many Calgarians heading west to the mountains.   As well, it is the major entry to the facilities at Bowness Park, Calgary Olympic Park/WinSport, and now the recently started Trinity Hills Development in the community of Medicine Hills.   This upgrade will also support the entryway to the new Greenwich Village development happening off Bowfort Road.

West Ring Road

I receive numerous inquiries about the timing of the construction of the West segment of the Calgary Ring Road (CRR) (which will run south along the west side of the city from Highway 1 (16 Avenue NW) to west of 69 Street SW on Glenmore Trail/Highway 8). The West Calgary Ring Road (W-CRR) is
approximately 9 kilometres long. It will be located primarily on the existing Transportation Utility Corridor (TUC) already owned by the provincial government, with some additional small parcels of land being purchased. An additional 5 kilometres of connector road upgrades will be included in the overall CRR project.

Since this is a Provincial project and not under the City’s direct control, I have initiated meetings with Alberta Infrastructure to stress how critical…

12 Mile Coulee/Pathway Upgrade

The 12 Mile Coulee Road widening project is a collaboration between Rocky View County and the City of Calgary.  12 Mile Coulee Road is an important road bordering Rocky View County and Tuscany that is used by people living in Lynx Ridge, Watermark, Tuscany and South Bearspaw. The project scope is to twin the road from the 1A Highway/Crowchild Trail through to TWP Road 252 / 80th Avenue.  The work will be spread over 2 years, with the first year portion focused on twinning the northern half (Tusslewood Dr to 300m south of Tuscany Way) and moving utility servicing safely underground.

The second phase (Tuscany Way to 80th Ave) will be…

Tuscany Fire Station

The Calgary Fire Department is building a new fire station at 345 Tuscany Way N.W., just west of the corner of Tuscany Way and Tuscany Valley Park. The design of the station has been confirmed and the construction of the two-storey building is well under way.  The new building will be clad in brick on the south side, where the fire station will be housed. This traditional design was chosen to stay true to Calgary’s traditional red brick fire station look. The north side of the building will house a community room, which can be booked by residents for community programs or meetings. This part of the building will have many large glass windows to allow everyone a view of the green space and fields and ensure the space is bright and open….

A Look Into the Future:


Greenwich

This project is in the stripping and grading stage and proceeding with two phases. Over $40 million of investment and 1,103 post-job are created by this project. Click here to view Greenwich’s website.

University District

The University District development is located immediately West of the University of Calgary’s Main Campus and is a model example of successful engagement with the five communities surrounding it. It is a multi-phased development with Truman Homes and Brookfield Residential building in the first phase. A higher standard of community input contributed directly to the rather unprecedented speed with which the Land Use Plan outline received approval from Council.

Although the University District boundary will change to Ward 7 after the 2017 election, I have committed to continue work with that Councillor’s Office to assist in the transition and future….

Medicine Hill

Council approved the land use application for Medicine Hills (formerly Paskapoo Slopes) development by a vote of 12 to 3. The upper two-thirds of the slopes were returned to the City of Calgary and will be managed by the City of Calgary Parks Department. The City is investing nearly $3 million to improve the upper slopes and will provide guaranteed maintenance for years to come. The park will have 11.5 kilometres of trails for Calgarians and visitors to permanently enjoy. Those trails will be accessible from more than three different locations.

Trinity Hills Development is responsible for paying 100 per cent of…

Market Mall Expansion

Market Mall in Varsity is undergoing renovations in order to make room for several new retail clients. CF Market Mall is one of Canada’s most productive shopping centres, according to a recent Retail Council of Canada shopping centre study.  The mall is nearing sales of $1,000 per square foot annually, making it the region’s second-most productive mall after CF Chinook Centre. 

Mall officials confirmed that both Zara and Sporting Life will be opening this year, with plans for Saks Off 5 th to open in 2018.  Zara will open one of its largest Canadian stores all this fall, with 30,000 square feet over two levels and Sporting Life will be opening a 40,000 square foot store.  Saks Off 5 th will be 26,600 square feet, and will…

Crestmont - Shape Properties

The City of Calgary is studying possible future land uses along the Trans-Canada Highway (16 Avenue N.W.), west of Canada Olympic Park. The area is partially developed with the communities of Valley Ridge, Greenwood/Greenbriar and Crestmont, but it also contains a significant amount of undeveloped
land.

My commitment has been that there will be no development until the completion of the Stoney /Valley Ridge interchange. Development will only start once the upgraded infrastructure at the interchange is started.   At this time…
