Progressive Partnership, Innovative Redevelopment

This website explores a redevelopment vision shared by the Royal Canadian Kensington Legion No. 264 and Truman. Recently approved by Calgary City Council, this website is an opportunity for community members to learn more about the vision.

Since the February 8, 2016 Public Hearing on the supporting Land Use Amendment and unanimous decision of approval by Council, The City Development Authority has been working with the Legion and Truman on second phase of development implementation — the mid-rise mixed use building Development Permit (DP) Application. We have responded to The City’s review comments, as well as the guiding Motion Arising by Councillor Farrell. The City Administration is prepared to recommend the DP for approval to Calgary Planning Commission, which will review and make a decision on approval on August 25, 2016. A summary of the revisions and enhancements since the original DP Submission (Nov. 2015) is downloadable below.
