Calgary’s downtown east is the portion of Calgary’s downtown just east of the city’s downtown west end. Including both the downtown commercial and east village neighbourhoods, its boundaries run north along the Bow River, south to the CP Rail tracks (running between 9 Ave and 10 Ave SW), east to 6 Street SE and west up to 9 Street SW.
Downtown Commercial Office Space
This large area of Calgary’s downtown includes a number of excellent amenities for businesses in the area, such as the Bow River to the east, the popular lunch destination and downtown event hubs Olympic Plaza, Eau Claire Plaza and Prince’s Island Park, plenty of food and shopping at the CORE Shopping Centre and many other restaurants and fast food spots. This area also has easy access to the city’s C-train system and the downtown’s extensive +15 skywalk system. This area is also home to the city’s old and new City Hall buildings.
In recent years, the city has been vastly redeveloping this area of Calgary’s downtown. In 2012 The Bow Tower was completed. It is the second tallest office tower in Calgary (since construction of the new Brookfield Place), and the third tallest in Canada outside Toronto.
The city’s New Central Library is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in 2018.
Calgary’s Downtown East Village is also located in Calgary’s Downtown East. This area has been a major focus for redevelopment, including the tear-down of many dilapidated buildings and the construction of various mixed-use buildings. A riverwalk was constructed along the Bow River, along with a new pedestrian bridge linking the new St. Patrick’s Island with the East Village to the south and the Bow River pathway system to the north. It will connect Calgary’s suburban north and east neighbourhoods such as Bridgeland and Inglewood to downtown and provide many opportunities for sustainable transportation from nearby communities.
Due to the size of this area and all the redevelopment, there is a wide variety of office spaces available. Everything from historic brick and sandstone buildings, to skyscrapers and conventional office buildings are available in this area.
