With final agreements now signed by all participating parties – including The City of Calgary, The Province of Alberta, Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation, and Calgary Stampede – Calgary’s long-awaited Event Centre (CEC) is advancing into its design and construction phase.
This continues the momentum of the city’s emerging Culture + Entertainment District (C+E District) and the ongoing revitalization of Calgary’s downtown core. The City will be working with CAA ICON as the development manager, and DIALOG and HOK as design consultants on the design of the new centre.
As a year-round hub for sports, arts, and entertainment, Calgary’s new events district will not only provide generational investment into Calgary and the surrounding region, but will also attract commercial investment and boost the city’s cultural and economic vibrancy. Housing new community amenities and infrastructure, the project promises to make a resounding impact on Calgary.
