The City's Eau Claire Projects
Investing in the future of Eau Claire, Prince’s Island, Chinatown and the East Village is a fundamental piece of The City’s Downtown Strategy – the effort to support and incentivize private investment, generate visits and spending, and provide amenities and services to enhance the quality of life for people living and working in Calgary’s downtown.
Updating our downtown’s interface with the Bow River goes beyond designing improved pathways and public spaces. It involves a flood mitigation effort that will increase the resilience of our downtown and protect the economic drivers of our economy.
Together these projects will support your community in the near future and for decades to come. Each of the projects in the area has the same objective of building and maintaining a wonderful neighbourhood. Some projects will be planned and constructed in the next two years, others that are in planning now won’t be realized for several years. It’s important that we implement each project to meet current needs and to lay the foundation for expected future demand as Calgary grows and evolves.
The draft Eau Claire Public Realm Plan provides a comprehensive vision for the future of the Eau Claire Public Realm. It highlights key considerations, programs and elements that will allow Eau Claire area projects to capitalize on the many opportunities that exist in the area and that will accompany forthcoming projects such as the Green Line and the redevelopment of Eau Claire Market.
