The Bridges

This redevelopment project surrounds the inner city in green

Calgary, Aberta

Reestablishing growth

The tree lined streets extend through the reestablished blocks to a new park built on the hospital footprint.

Integrated skyline

Multi-storied housing units border the park on three sides to focus on the downtown skyline.

Built in connections

A new community centre is located on the corner of the park and a new street forms a pedestrian promenade that connects the entire neighbourhood to the LRT station, the Bow River, and downtown.
