Urban design guidelines help shape the future of Calgary's Centre City


Everyone knows the key landmarks in our Centre City like the Calgary Tower, The Peace Bridge, Bow River, Stephen Avenue Mall and our +15 Skywalk System, but a lot of work goes into making these areas memorable and accessible for everyone. That’s what the Centre City Urban Design Guidelines are meant to do. The guidelines are meant to inspire and inform all parties in the development review process regarding the quality design standards at The City.  Setting these standards helps when it comes to reviewing future development decisions in the Centre City where nearly everyone spends time working, living and playing.

New Centre City Urban Design Guidelines have recently been produced and are ready for your input over the next four weeks before they are discussed at the Calgary Planning Commission and by City Council. Take a closer look at the documents online and let us know if the urban design principles and solutions proposed are clear, consistent, certain, flexible, and innovative enough to enhance our city and build Calgary’s progressive image on the national and international scene.
