Although the Charrette wrapped up in June 2011 and City Council amended the Area Redevelopment Plans in July 2012, Assured Communities and strategic partner Calgary Urban Equities completed a further 15 months of design development. Their 3rd submission, following the May 14th presentation to residents of the Erlton and Parkhill Stanley Park communities, is pictured above. Mission 34 will offer 47 residences ranging from 535 to 945 sq. ft. in a variety of plans including apartment style, street front lofts and courtyard homes complimented by a contemporary tower icon and a commercial amenity space.

    This is the moment we’ve all been planning towards.

    Beginning Wednesday, June 15, 2011, citizens, landowners, and City staff sat down with an international consulting team to translate years worth of lessons learned into a plan for healthy growth along Mission Road. Just as important, they used this week-long planning workshop as a test run for how Calgary's residents, business people, and government might better go about charting the future of our neighbourhoods together.

    That’s why we’ve described this project as: Neighbours on a mission. In reality, we’re all neighbours. And we have to work together to get where we want to go. Read more here.
