Self-serve engagement opportunity at Currie Barracks showcases area development plans

The City of Calgary is reviewing a proposal from Canada Lands Company to change the type of development on the east side of Currie Barracks, allowing for a medium-density mix of retail space, office space and residential space. The proposal includes a network of open spaces and pathways while preserving key aspects of the area’s military history.

To offer residents a convenient opportunity to provide feedback on the proposal during the busy summer months, The City has set up an on-site location at the Currie Barracks Sales Centre. Until September 18, the Sales Centre will house a variety of self-serve information about the proposed development and be staffed by City planners every Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.

“The City is excited to offer a unique way to engage with the community, offering evening office hours and a library of information concerning the new application for Currie Barracks,” says Craig Sklenar, Senior Planner with The City’s Planning Department.

For more information on the proposed redevelopment and how to provide your feedback to City Staff, please visit or contact 3-1-1.

The Currie Barracks Sales Centre is located at J5, 2953 Battleford Avenue SW. Hours of operation are Monday to Thursday, 2-8 p.m. and Saturday, Sunday and Holidays, 12-5 p.m. The Sales Centre is closed on Fridays.
