West Campus Development Trust is pleased to announce six new retailers joining University District, the bold and innovative 200-acre urban community located in Calgary’s northwest.

These dynamic businesses are part of the first of four phases of the Retail Main Street in University District, which will have more than 300,000 square-feet of retail development once complete.

The six new retailers include Blaze Pizza, which will be the popular artisanal pizza place’s first location in the northwest;  Copper Branch, which provides a 100 per cent plant-based wholesome food options;
Curious Hair Skin Body; a “made in Calgary” business committed to making clients look and feel their best; Denim & Smith Barbershop, which  has quickly grown to become Calgary's largest barber shop concept
through their no-nonsense approach; Freshii, a popular healthy food chain providing through a diverse menu of nutrition-led salads, bowls, wraps and soups; and a Scotiabank branch.

These new retailers will be located among major anchor tenants: Save-On-Foods and the Alt Hotel, along the vibrant nine-block retail main street located on University Avenue, which has been thoughtfully
designed with comfort, walkability, proximity, and choice in mind.

The main street experience will be rich in variety, offering essential services, home fashion, daily needs as well food, social and entertainment options. The announcement of six new key retail partners this early
in the development process is a landmark achievement and is another clear demonstration of the mindful planning and relationships being fostered at the core of this innovative new community.

These new retailers, and others yet to be announced, will add new life and thoughtful choices to the northwest Calgary shopping scene across a number of categories, focusing on quality, convenience and
healthy options. They include a blend of recognized national and global brands, as well as locally owned and operated success stories.

The new retailers join the growing roster of previously named tenants in the area including Save-On-Foods, Analog Coffee, J. Webb Market Wines and Cineplex VIP Cinemas.

These retailers are anticipated to open in 2020 and are just one part of the overall diverse retail offering that will be at the core of University District.
