Devonian Gardens to complete its highly anticipated makeover.
Located in the heart of downtown Calgary and the newly renovated CORE shopping mall, the Devonian Gardens features the world's longest skylight, which extends over the entrance of a proposed restaurant. This 2.5 acre indoor public park is one of North America’s largest indoor gardens and a significant gathering place for Calgarians and tourists alike.
restaurant space, currently up for grabs by the best bidder, will occupy three levels, offering an opportunity to seat patrons in distinct character spaces serving a mid- to high-level clientele. All three levels have spectacular views of either the city or the garden and are immediately accessible via the +30 and +45 levels of the complex. With extensive seating in such a unique location, the restaurant will also be given the option to cater to multiple events on the same day.
Within walking distance of Calgary's theatre district and Olympic Plaza, the Devonian Gardens can be easily accessed along Stephen Avenue pedestrian street and by the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system, which stops at the main doorway to The CORE shopping mall.
Devonian Gardens is temporarily closed for renovations and expected to reopen in summer 2012. Anyone interested in submitting a proposal for the unique restaurant development opportunity in the Devonian Gardens can find out more details on calgary.ca. The closing date for proposals is March 21, 2012.
