About West District

Truman Development’s proposal for West District is for a unique master planned neighbourhood in West Calgary.

West District is a proposal for a unique master planned neighbourhood in west Calgary. The vision is for a vibrant, compact and connected neighbourhood that will enhance surrounding neighbourhoods and provide a great quality of life for existing and future residents.

The neighbourhood is proposed for a large, yet-to-be-developed pocket of land within the communities of West Springs/Cougar Ridge, in southwest Calgary. The West District Plan Area is approximately 84 acres (34 hectares) in size and is generally described as lands located south of Old Banff Coach Road SW, east of 85 Street SW, west of 77 Street SW and north of 9 Avenue SW.

Truman Development Corporation owns or has agreement to undertake planning on a majority portion (approximately 70 percent, or 65 acres) within the West District Plan Area. Truman is undertaking a developer-led comprehensive planning effort, in keeping with the standard practices of The City of Calgary, and will collaborate with other landowners in the Plan Area.

West District is proposed as a Major Activity Centre for west Calgary. It is envisioned as a higher-intensity (people and jobs), mixed-use, compact and transit-supportive node that is described in the Municipal Development Plan as an “urban centre” for a sub-region of the City that provides opportunities for people to work, live, shop, recreate, be entertained and meet their daily needs.

Approved and On-going Applications
with The City

In May of 2015, Council adopted Bylaw 48D2015 and approved the comprehensive Land Use Redesignation and Outline Plan (LOC2014-0008) for “Gateway” - nearly 10 acres within the Master Plan vision area. The approval is representative of six (6) mid-rise mixed-use buildings (creating greater than 700 dwellings and nearly 50,000 square feet of retail) that frame the initial segment of a new community main street. The first two buildings and the main street are now under construction and, in spirit, this represents the construction of the first phase of West District.

‘On November 24, 2016 Council directed City Administration to undertake and evaluate an amendment to the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP), through the Developer Funded ASP Program. The ASP amendment focuses on approximately 34 hectares of land and is currently being reviewed concurrently with a Land Use Redesignation application by Truman to plan, in detail, the balance of West District lands.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is West District?

West District is a unique neighbourhood that’s being planned within the communities of West Springs/Cougar Ridge. The vision is for a compact and connected neighbourhood with a vibrant mix of housing options, retail, office, and public park spaces.

The neighbourhood is envisioned as offering multi-family housing options that range from townhomes to apartment-style dwellings within some mixed-use mid-rise buildings (six to eight storeys in height). In addition to retail shops and services, other commercial elements would include a business campus focus, geared toward office and institutional uses (for example, medical services and education).

Who is the developer?

Truman Development Corporation (Truman). Truman is an Alberta-based developer-builder with over twenty years experience creating master planned communities in and around the Calgary metropolitan area.

What is the proposed location of West District?

Proposed in the communities of West Springs/Cougar Ridge, the West District Plan area is 96 acres (39 hectares) in size and is generally described as lands located south of Old Banff Coach Road SW, east of 85 Street SW, west of 77 Street SW, and north of 9 Avenue SW.

Truman Development Corporation owns or has agreement to undertake planning on a majority portion of land (approximately 80 percent, or 75 acres) within the West District Plan Area. Truman is undertaking a developer-led comprehensive planning effort, in keeping with the standard practices of The City of Calgary, and will collaborate with other landowners in the Plan Area.

What is the size of the planning area of West District?

Proposed in the communities of West Springs/Cougar Ridge, the West District Plan Area is approximately 84 acres (34 hectares) in size and is generally described as lands located south of Old Banff Coach Road SW, east of 85 Street SW, west of 77 Street SW and north of 9 Avenue SW.

Truman Development Corporation owns or has agreement to undertake planning on a majority portion (approximately 70 percent, or 65 acres) within the West District Plan Area. Truman is undertaking a developer-led comprehensive planning effort, in keeping with the standard practices of The City of Calgary, and will collaborate with other landowners in the Plan Area.

What exists within the West District planning area today?

The West District planning area is proposed for a large pocket of land that has yet-to-be-developed to an urban standard. There are several country residential acreages, and two places of worship (West Springs Free Methodist Church and Calgary Sikh Society).

What are the other nearby communities?

Coach Hill, Patterson, Aspen Woods, Strathcona Park, and Christie Park.

Why develop in the West District planning area?

The west end of Calgary has largely been built-out and there are few remaining large pockets of land that have yet-to-develop to an urban standard. Calgary’s west end has many attractive, primarily residential, communities and there is much demand for new housing and other services.

Instead of sprawling west beyond future Stoney Trail, West District is a rare opportunity for Calgary to create a new neighbourhood within an established community that is compact, mixed-use, higher-intensity (people and jobs), and transit-supportive. West District proposes to build on and enhance existing infrastructure and capacity, making good use of taxpayer dollars already invested.

What are examples of other Calgary-based neighbourhoods that would be similar to West District?

West District is envisioned as having a look and feel similar to elements found in neighbourhoods like Hillhurst-Sunnyside’s Kensington retail High-Street, Garrison Woods’ compactly arranged mixed-housing options, and Quarry Park’s employment-focused business campus.

How does this proposed neighbourhood fit with the policies of the West Springs Area Structure Plan (ASP)?

The West District planning area is located within the boundaries of the existing ASP, and makes up about one-tenth of the overall land area within the ASP. An application to amend the ASP is required and has been submitted to The City of Calgary. For more information on the City’s review process, go to

Has the plan been approved by the City of Calgary?

No. The City of Calgary is currently reviewing the application by Truman. For more information on the City’s review process, go to calgary.ca/westdistrict

Principles

Six Neighbourhood-Building Principles are helping shape an early concept.

From the beginning, these principles have guided the West District concept to build a creative mix of housing options, amenities, jobs and services that will complement the communities of West Springs and Cougar Ridge.

1. A vibrant neighbourhood

A lively mix of people, jobes and activities creates a thriving hub for west Calgary.

Local residents would have a chance to live, work, shop and play right in west Calgary, making the West District a thriving and complete community.

2. Comfortable Building Design

Thoughtful building form creates a welcoming, attractive and safe neighbourhood.

The right design choices help create a welcoming, attractive and safe neighbourhood that complements surrounding communities. Mid-rise, mixed-use buildings protect views and provide a convenient mix of residential and commercial elements.

3. Convenient Connections

There are many options for people to get to, from and around the neighbourhood.

A variety of mobility options and effective design choices support people getting around in their vehicles, through public transportation, on foot and on bicycle.

4. A Variety of Housing Options

People have a wide range of housing choices to meet different life stages.

A range of housing choices can meet the needs of all citizens – from senior citizens to recent graduates, and everyone in between.

5. A Unique Community Park & Plaza

A multi-use open space creates a dynamic year-round meeting place for the community.

Inviting and innovative public spaces give everyone a place to gather, relax and enjoy active lifestyles.

6. Future-friendly Planning

Sustainable approaches to design, building and infrastructure minimize the impact on the environment and protect future generations.

Sustainable and cost-effective choices today can help protect a future of possibilities for generations to come.

The City of Calgary is currently
reviewing Truman’s application
to amend the West Springs
Area Structure Plan (ASP) to include
a special planning area for
West District.

Citizens are able to meet with City representatives and the West District team, and share comments. Please note, the material will be the same at both of these events so you only need to attend one. The open houses are being held on the following dates:

  • Thursday, Oct 19, from 6 – 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct 21, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Both sessions will be held at the Calgary French and International School, Core Cafeteria, 700 77 St. S.W.

As part of their review process, the City is asking the public for feedback. Please visit the City’s website at calgary.ca/westspringsasp for information on the City review process and how to share your thoughts.

Key Plan Changes

Map A A A B B B B C D E E F F

The illustrated Master Plan creates a more detailed expression of how buildings, roadways, and open spaces are proposed to be organized within the Plan Area. The following key changes to the master plan emerged as a result of the comprehensive stakeholder engagement process:

A. Better Shared Edges

Townhouses proposed along the South edge are to be single-detached homes, complementing the existing homes to the south.

Reduction in building heights, from 6-8 storeys to 4-5 storeys along North edge, to make a better transition to the single-detached homes to the North.

Less office/institutional and more residential uses along 77 Street SW to complement existing residential uses to the East.

B. More Park Space & Tree Retention

Find opportunities to preserve mature Aspen tree stands by expanding the central park space.

Integrate the stakeholder preferred skating rink and walking paths within the retained naturalized area within central park space.

Create a secondary neighbourhood park space (at ‘Gateway’ site) in addition to the large central park.

Additional neighbourhood park space to NW and SW.

C. Protect Area Property Values By Design

Comprehensive master planning allows Truman, as the principal developer-builder, to ensure a consistent and high-quality design outcome for all types of housing, whether it is single-detached, attached-townhouses, or apartment-style condominiums.

Truman’s commitment to this outcome is demonstrated by the design quality currently under construction for the ‘Gateway’ site, a first development phase of West District.

D. PROVIDE ENOUGH PARKING

Truman will meet or exceed the City required parking for all land uses and the majority of parking will be contained underground.

Create a convenient central parking structure to ensure demand is met for: enhanced transit users, retail/office/institutional patrons, and central park visitors.

Additional on-street parking to be provided throughout West District’s street network by design.

E. TRAFFIC CALMING

Create a transit centre integrated with the central parking structure.

People friendly streets with ‘traffic calming’ by design to limit vehicular traffic speed and short-cutting.

F. COMMUNITY MEETING SPACE

Include a flexible development site where private or public indoor recreational facility space could be provided.

Include a site for a flexible building for community meeting purposes (and possible West Springs/Cougar Ridge Community Association use), to be integrated with a café space/pavilion space within the central park.

Land Use

  • Land Uses Navigation

Office / Institutional Mixed-Retail Area

To create an employment backbone for the Activity Centre, a local hub of employment uses is proposed to accommodate a range of small to large commercial-office users, as well as institutional users (i.e., medical and educational). Greater local employment (or live-work opportunities) helps to diffuse employment nodes across the city and creates more balanced and less-congested traffic flow.

Gateway Approval

In May of 2015, Council adopted Bylaw 48D2015 and approved the comprehensive Land Use Redesignation and Outline Plan (LOC2014-0008) for nearly 10 acres within the Master Plan vision area. The approval is representative of six (6) mid-rise mixed-use buildings (creating greater than 700 dwellings and nearly 50,000 square feet of retail) that frame the first segment of a new community main street. The first two buildings and the main street are now under construction and, in spirit, this represents the construction of the first phase of West District.

Residential Area

To diversify the existing primarily single-family housing context, a complementary range of multi-family dwelling types is proposed such as townhomes and stacked townhouses. Higher density and taller building forms required to achieve a critical mass of people will be concentrated within the core of the Plan Area and the Mixed Use Corridor, away from the existing established lower-profile community edges.

Residential Mixed-Retail Area

To create a healthy intensity of both people and jobs, a mix of uses (or more than one type of use, such as residential, retail or office) is proposed. The Mixed Use Corridor (or ‘High-Street’) will contain vertically-integrated mixed-use buildings (i.e., retail at-grade and residential above), creating a convenient and lively connection among different uses.

Central Community Park

A large central open space is proposed and envisioned as having multi-functional programming with various attractions during the day and evenings all year long. As a hybrid of community park and urban plaza, it can be a celebrated destination open space for those that live and work within the Activity Centre, as well as the greater community.

Existing Community Park

A series of existing and adjacent community parks spaces (primarily linear parks and small park nodes) provide a context to create new park spaces and pedestrian-oriented corridors that help establish a more connected and integrated open space system within the greater community.

Mixed Use Policy Area

Existing Mixed Use Policy Areas along 85 Street SW have primarily been developed or are approved for development per the guiding policies of the West Springs ASP. The Mixed Use Policy Areas are intended to be destinations within the community that contain a mix of transit-supportive residential and non-residential uses.

  • What is current density of West Springs and Cougar Ridge?

    The community of West Springs/Cougar Ridge is a primarily developed community of mostly single-detached residential land uses. Located in the heart of West Springs/Cougar Ridge, West District Plan Area is a last large pocket of land that has yet to develop to an urban standard.

    With a density of only 3.5 dwelling units per acre (upa), West Springs/Cougar Ridge has a relatively low density compared to other local communities:

    • Coach Hill - 5.6 upa
    • Altadore (Garrison Woods) - 6.3 upa
    • McKenzie Towne - 6.6 upa
    • Hillhurst/Sunnyside - 10.5 upa
    • Cliff Bungalow/Mission - 22.5 upa

    Existing West Springs and Cougar Ridge

    1,554 Acres
    629 Hectares
    5,421 Dwelling Units
    16,800 People
    2,217 Jobs
    3.5 Units per Acre
    30 People or Jobs per Gross Developable Hectare
  • What would be the density if West District Plan Area built-out under existing local development policy?

    If the Plan Area where West District is proposed were to develop according to the existing low-density primarily-residential land use local policies, there were be a modest increase in overall density of the community of West Springs/Cougar Ridge from 3.5 to 3.9 dwelling units per acre.

    Existing Policy Development Scenario

    84 Acres
    34 Hectares
    603 Dwelling Units
    1,936 People
    74 Jobs
    7.2 Units per Acre
    58 People or Jobs per Gross Developable Hectare
  • What would be the density if West District Plan Area built-out under the proposed Master Plan?

    The proposed density build-out of the West District Master Plan Area would grow the overall West Springs/Cougar Ridge community from an existing 3.5 units per acre today to 4.6 units per acre over the 15-20 years of West District's build-out.

    West District Master Plan Development Scenario

    84 Acres
    34 Hectares
    1,789 Dwelling Units
    3,389 People
    3,543 Jobs
    21 Units per Acre
    204 People or Jobs per Gross Developable Hectare
  • How have the numbers changed?

    The West District concept has undergone significant changes as a result of The City of Calgary’s multidisciplinary team review process. The concept has been revised to realize lower levels of intensity, while maintaining the critical level of activity needed to realize the quality of urban development envisioned by Truman.

    West District Original Submission

    84 Acres
    34 Hectares
    2,758 Dwelling Units
    4,714 People
    5,495 Jobs
    33 Units per Acre
    291 People or Jobs per Gross Developable Hectare
  • How do these numbers relate to city-wide development policies?

    The City of Calgary's Municipal Development Plan and the greater Calgary Metropolitan Plan state that new communities to be planned must achieve a minimum density of 8 dwelling units per acre (upa).

    The proposed build-out of the West District Master Plan Area grows the overall West Springs/Cougar Ridge community density toward to the minimum goal of 8 upa, from the existing 3.5 upa today to 5.3 upa in about 15-20 years of build-out. However, that new growth would still fall short of the minimum 8 upa goal that would otherwise be required of new communities developing today, communities like Mahogany and Seton.

Master Plan

Central Park Space

A destination park that fully integrates people spaces with stormwater infrastructure and natural landscape. The park will include multi-functional attractions and events that will draw people, days and evenings, all year long. The fundamental design intertwines people-oriented programming with the functional aspects of stormwater management by highlighting water as a design element. With the goal of maximizing usable active and passive people space, the park functions and aesthetics evolve with storm events. The park’s passive program is sensitively arranged with existing groves of Aspen trees to create an intimate naturalized experience.
