Having a walkable community has been proven to enhance the mental and physical wellbeing of residents, raise property values and increase economic viability. That's why a pedestrian-oriented urban design is at the heart of University District. As part of this design, all residential homes will be within a 10-minute walk from a nearby park. A comprehensive network of pathways and sidewalks will also provide numerous route options and create a community that promotes walking and reduces the reliance on vehicles.
From shopping, schools and hospitals, to entertainment and outdoor recreation, University District is designed to offer residents everything they need in one central location. Featuring close proximity to the downtown core and the Bow River, it will be a community where you can live life to the fullest.
Below are some of the amenities planned for University District, with future amenities added as the community develops.

Situated in one of Calgary's most natural and inspiring locations, University District has been designed to take advantage of the area's natural features. Featuring breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains, the Bow River and downtown Calgary, it will be a community steeped in the untouched beauty the area has to offer.
University District is unique in that it's built on land that will remain fully owned by the University of Calgary, with property leased to builders and subleased to buyers. All profits will go to the U of C to fund their ongoing academic mission. This revolutionary concept is a first for Calgary, but one that's proven incredibly successful for communities such as Harvard (pictured), Yale, Oxford and the University of British Columbia.
