Calgary’s newest “urban” community is breaking new ground

The ground was broken and dirt was thrown to begin the launch of a new southwestern community in Calgary on Thursday.

The Alpine Park will take about 15 years to complete at an estimated cost of $ 2.5 billion and will create hundreds of jobs per year to provide housing for about 10,000 residents.

“I don’t think it’s like many other places,” Dream’s Michael Cooper told reporters.

“Alpine Park is one of the most respected mixed-use communities along with the Distillery District and Canary District in Toronto and Zibi in Ottawa. We strive to build communities that help improve people’s lives,” said Cooper.

The Mayor of Calgary says the project could raise the bar.

“Dream has done a remarkable job in planning a new kind of community. A community where people can live, work, play in a great setting, an urban setting, a sustainable and resilient environment, even on the outskirts of Calgary.” Naheed Nenshi said.

“I’m very excited to see what’s possible here because I think it could set the bar for future urban development here and across the country.”

The 646-acre space is located south of the Tsuut’ina Reservation on 146th Avenue SW, west of Evergreen and Bridlewood parishes and the southwest ring road, and north of the Spruce Meadows Trail.
