In the coming years the lands around Canada Olympic Park (Paskapoo Slopes) and the Trans-Canada Corridor are going to change dramatically.
First, transportation improvements are huge.
By the summary of 2017 the Bowfort Rd NW Interchange should be complete.
By 2020 or 2021 the final portion of the ring road connecting the west side of the city should also be at or near completion.
We are going to need the transportation improvements if all of the proposed developments go forward.
On the north side of the TransCanada proposals include the proposed community of Haskayne which runs north of the Bow River heading west from the old quarry. This section is in earlier stages than the rest. The next open house is March 3, 2015.
On the east side of the Ring Road (Stoney Trail) are two more proposed communities on the north side of the TransCanada called Parkside and GreenBriar.
On the south side of the TransCanada are several proposed sites. Running from west of COP is Trinity Hills which is proposing a hotel, residential townhouses and commercial office space. This development is facing some local opposition.The Trinity Hills proposal will go before the Calgary Planning Commission in May or June, with a public hearing at City Council expected sometime in July.
West of COP the proposed developments include Bow Valley Crossing, Shape and then Crestmost Phase 4 on the west side of Crestmont.
An overview of most of the proposals are included in the Calgary West Trans-Canada Corridor Study.
As all the projects are in the initial design phases it is hard to detail what will be built or when, but definitely an area to watch.
