See how Currie does it

A higher quality of life

A diverse collection of housing, employment opportunities, green space, retail, dining and recreational opportunities are all within reach of each other. This is attractive by design to a diverse breadth of people of varying ages, incomes, backgrounds and interests.

Residents are empowered, challenged, inspired and energized to live as they’ve always wanted to.

  • Once completed, Currie will cover 195 acres of land – which equates to about 148 football fields.
  • Once complete, Currie will be home to over 12,000 residents.

The best in architecture, landscape & design

A thoughtful, holistic urban design approach is carried through every corner of Currie. Particular emphasis has been placed on creating human comfort, a sense of community and architecture and landscaping that’s aesthetically pleasing.

  • Eight heritage sites with 11 heritage resources are incorporated into our plans for Currie, representing the largest cluster of heritage resources in Alberta.

A brisk walk to work

Currie offers the rare luxury of living close to where you work. A variety of companies will call Currie home, and all of them will be within 10-15 minutes of Currie’s diverse array of housing.

  • Currie will provide up to 3,000 job opportunities.

Walkability & connectivity

A well-planned network of safe narrow streets, sidewalks, boulevards and public spaces makes walking safe and pleasurable. Daylight is maximized while wind is minimized. The 10-minute proximity to essential amenities, job opportunities and public transportation makes this an ideal place to be.

  • A system of multi-use trails and pathways spreads through the community, perfect for biking and running. The Glenmore Reservoir and Weaslehead Recreation Area are accessible through the regional path system, providing easy access to one of the most unique ecosystems in Calgary.

Real neighbourhoods

Currie employs the most successful urban design practices of Europe and North America. Public space is paramount and accessible to all. The neighbourhood is a return to warm smiles, familiar faces and a sense of community.

  • Currie will provide residents with over 23 acres of parks and open space, including an urban dog park.
  • Best in class schools exist in and around Currie, and Mount Royal University is our next-door neighbour.

Housing for every stage of life

At Currie, there are multiple options from high-rise apartments to single family homes. As life and needs change, Currie is designed to grow with you.

  • 15 housing styles have been identified for Currie ‒ everything from one-bedroom condominiums to urban estate homes will be offered.

Density without discomfort

Currie solves the challenge of more people in less space. Diversity of amenities, work opportunities, resources and green space exist here. This virtually eliminates commuting and provides more time for exercise, social interaction and personal growth.

  • When complete, Currie will provide a total of 5,700 apartments, condominiums and single-family homes.

Green, green and more green

Lush, green landscaping, walking trails and plenty of trees and fresh air are all characteristics of Currie. The master plan over-delivers on City of Calgary green-space requirements.

  • Currie will provide 23 acres of public municipal reserve (green) space, or approximately 12%.

True sustainability

Smart urban planning leverages available light, minimizes pedestrian exposure to cold wind, recirculates warmth and maximizes exposure to fresh air in summer. Environmental impact is minimized in every planning decision. Plenty of carbon-neutral transportation options from walking, biking and electric car charging/parking are provided. Many buildings are LEED-certified. Public transportation is easily accessible from all points Currie.
