Project Update: July 2014
Final Tenant Call
Our future creative community at the King Edward is coming together! We would like to thank all the organizations who took the time to visit our open house events in May/June and complete the tenant submission process.
As we near the deadline for the last tenant call before construction starts, an exciting range of non-profit organizations have expressed interest in becoming tenants at the King Edward. Representing all corners of Calgary’s creative sector, applicants will go through a rigourous evaluation and interview process. Once approved by cSPACE, these organizations will join anchor tenants previously identified in 2012 as we all work towards building an incredibly diverse and innovative community at the King Edward.
Stay tuned for our announcement in September of the full slate of tenants for the grand opening in 2016!
The King Edward is a complex project with mixed uses, old and new architecture, land sales and innovative public spaces. City staff and our consultant team have been busy over the last few months finalizing our plans and designs. We are happy to report that our permitting processes are nearing completion!
In the meantime, the King Edward site will be active with general groundskeeping and building maintenance. Locals will see that the last of the metal debris from the demolition of the 1950’s and 60’s wings has been removed – thanks for your patience!
