Modern and mindfully made, the University District main street will be a retail and entertainment destination that will charm and inspire residents and visitors alike. As a community focal point and place to find key amenities, main street will provide a broad mix of day-to-day services and must-see retail experiences. The street will also consist of higher density mixed-use retail and residential buildings to provide the population density to support businesses.
Featuring restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and public gathering plazas, main street will be more than just a commercial hub—it will be a premiere destination for Calgarians from all walks of life.
University District main street is designed with pedestrians in mind. Featuring wide sidewalks with an enhanced streetscape, extended seating options to accommodate café spillover, and large, spacious event spaces, it will be an area tailored to long strolls, window shopping and public gatherings.
Retail at the ground level of main street will also create a bustling and vibrant pedestrian atmosphere, with parking available underground at the nearby plaza.
