The vision for the redevelopment of the Eau Claire Market site is to create an iconic, vibrant, dense, diverse and primarily residential mixed-use development. Your support is valuable to us. Please submit your input!

 

 

Some of the items for consideration are:

+15 Connections
Approximately 80% of all of the proposed Development's edges are active with retail and services at the ground level. In addition, connecting hotel guests, business travelers, retail customers and office workers to the downtown core via the +15 system creates convenience and is integral to the success of a mixed-use development.

Smokestack
The proposed new location of the Historic Smokestack is about 150 metres North of its current location. In this new prominent location beside the Plaza, the Smokestack’s landmark value and contribution to the public realm are significantly improved with the creation of an interpretive and educational space.

Office
This is a PRIMARILY RESIDENTIAL Development with approximately 1,000 new homes proposed. Office is already an approved use on this site. Great urban neighbourhoods host a range of activities, both social and commercial. Office uses in mixed-use communities provide critical daytime patrons for retail businesses and encourage people to live and work in the area, creating vibrancy and safety.

Shadowing
The very few new shadows proposed on the Plaza result in approximately 300 additional residential units, an office occupancy of enough workers to support daytime uses and a significant bonus density financial contribution to the redevelopment of the Plaza. NO shadows will be cast on the Plaza from April to late August and NO shadows will be cast on the Bow River Pathway at all.
