Calgary Stampede

posted in: Masterplanning | 0

GMA (in collaboration with Civitas) was engaged to develop, in conjunction with the Calgary Stampede management, an urban design project initiated to create an intimate urban street character for the proposed expansion of the Stampede’s facilities North to the current Saddle dome. Featuring tree lined boulevards, street front retail set within a pedestrian friendly environment that will encourage residents of the adjacent mixed use developments to make this their own neighbourhood. The project required careful study of the building orientations; access and massing to ensure the project will create a vibrant and lively retail street within the heart of the stampede grounds.
