Currie Barracks has quickly become one of the most unique and desired neighbourhood concepts in Calgary. It blends a rich history as former CFB Calgary lands with a distinct ‘new urban’ environment, bringing together outstanding location and diverse housing options, along with plentiful green and community spaces.
Drive through or better yet get out for a stroll in this dynamic and inviting neighbourhood. It’s a place that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Here’s a snapshot of what to look forward to:
Rich heritage. The area comprising Currie Barracks was originally designed for military use. Formal training and manoeuvers were implemented here as far back as during the time leading up to the First World War. For decades the land has been protected while Calgary grew up around it, until over the past 15 years with the turnover of lands to facilitate new neighbourhood development.
Signals of this unique heritage are everywhere – for example, in the unique street names in and around this area, such as Peacekeeper’s Way and Victoria Cross Boulevard, and also in beautifully designed community parks with monuments paying tribute to Canada’s international peacekeeping contributions.
One of the best locations in Calgary. The location simply can’t be beat – close to downtown (just 7 minutes’ drive, or close enough to bike), close to the Glenmore Reservoir and the heart of the city’s burgeoning network of parks and trails, with quick in and out access via major thoroughfares, all in peaceful and inspiring neighbourhood design. Close to Mount Royal University and all its amenities, along with a strongly diversified mix of residential, corporate campus, schools, shops and more all close by.
Vision taking shape. New residents to Currie Barracks will enjoy being part of a fresh and dynamic area starting to reach its peak of renewal. Currie Barracks is the last part of a three-phase community development plan for the former military lands that also includes Garrison Woods and Garrison Green. All phases feature traffic-calmed streets and sustainable landscaping. The vision for the Currie Barracks portion is for a well-tailored blend of condos, townhouses and single-family homes, with over 23 acres of parks and sports / recreation fields.
