CMLC lays out plans for Victoria Park
Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) – the organization responsible for bringing Calgary’s East Village back to life — takes its first step to rejuvenate the next part of downtown’s eastside — Victoria Park.
“With the new East Village rising rapidly skyward, we’re now turning our attention to the rest of the Rivers District — specifically Victoria Park,” says Michael Brown, CMLC’s president and CEO. “Much like the East Village of 10 years ago, Victoria Park is an inner-city neighbourhood at a turning point in its history. While sporadic development here and there has helped the community to some degree, it’s not enough. To truly transform Victoria Park and steer the Rivers District toward its full potential, bold moves are needed.
