Plans for major development in old Currie Barracks unveiled

Global News

CALGARY- Plans to revamp the old Currie Barracks in southwest Calgary are beginning to take shape.

On Monday, a town hall meeting was held to discuss plans for the former military barracks, which are near Marda Loop and Garrison Woods.

The new development includes 5,600 homes, green space and pedestrian walkways. An estimated 11-thousand people could eventually live in the area.

The area’s councillor says it could provide a blueprint for future developments in the city.

“This is an opportunity to show how it can be done, show that it can be done and to show that this is what building a liveable city is all about,” says Brian Pincott.

Canadian Lands Company, which is behind the project, expects it will take a decade to complete.
