Prestigious Currie Living

Divide

Currie Barracks has been a key landmark in Calgary for generations. It is one of North America’s largest inner-city, master-planned communities. Development is in its third and final phase, which is also the largest phase. Once complete, Currie will be home to approximately 12,000 residents. 

At Currie you can be downtown in just a few minutes, walk along tree-lined boulevards to work in the village, or spend the day exploring over 23 acres of parks and trails; the options are truly endless.

Green Space


Lush, green landscaping, walking trails and plenty of trees and fresh air are all characteristics of Currie. The master plan over-delivers on City of Calgary green-space requirements. The Glenmore Reservoir and Weaslehead Recreation Area are accessible through the regional path system, providing easy access to one of the most unique ecosystems in Calgary.

Sustainability


Located in the heart of southwest Calgary, this historic site is now a modern and sustainable environment with an ideal mix of homes, restaurants, shops and offices as well as wide open public spaces, parks and recreational opportunities.

LEED Certified


Part of reimagining Currie involved making it a shining example of the ideal walkable and sustainable community. After earning recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council, it became one of few developments to achieve LEED-ND certification. This esteemed rating requires innovation in sustainable development that includes traffic-calmed streets and pedestrian networks that brings residents within a 5-minute walk of shops, parks, and public transportation.

History


The lands were first designated for military use in 1911, when formal manoeuvres were staged in the lead-up to the First World War. In 1933, a new base was announced in honour of one of Canada’s most decorated military figures, Sir Arthur William Currie. The area surrounding Currie Barracks remained undeveloped until 1948, when the Department of Defense purchased the lands for the construction of the Currie Married Quarters. For the next 50 years, Currie Barracks remained part of CFB Calgary.

In 1995, the Federal Government announced plans to close CFB Calgary. Soon after, the CFB West Master Plan area was defined to include Currie Barracks along with the surrounding lands of Lincoln Park Permanent Married Quarters (now Garrison Green), Mount Royal College, ATCO, and WestMount. In Late 1995, Canada Lands Company purchased the site.
