Architecture

A strategic location

Located on 80 acres in northeast Calgary, the site offers easy access to more than 900,000 residents.

Restaurant Row

A collection of restaurants and patios line the central courtyard.

Outdoor spaces are a focus

The retail development is built around a central pedestrian mall with water features and landscape elements.

Moving retail outdoors

Taking cues from places like Denver and Chicago, Deerfoot City moves the shopping experience outside, a unique offering in suburban Calgary.

An urban experience

The project offers a creative and vibrant social experience with an urban feel that differentiates it from traditional enclosed malls.

Location, location, location

Deerfoot City is located on Deerfoot Trail, one of the province’s busiest transportation corridors. More than 128,000 vehicles pass the site daily.

Re-imagining retail

The plan re-purposes an existing mature retail area. The new outdoor-focused development features a full spectrum of retail, dining and recreational opportunities.
