The Bridges Phase 3 Multi-Residential Development Sites
Bridges - Phase 3

Submission process now closed

The Bridges is an award winning multi-residential and mixed use redevelopment project owned and managed by The City of Calgary. Located in the inner-city community of Bridgeland-Riverside and adjacent to the Bridgeland LRT station along a regional pathway that is within walking distance of downtown, the Calgary Zoo, Bow River, and the Bridgeland LRT station.

The Bridges is designed as an urban village that respects, enhances and takes cues from the surrounding neighbourhood, while creating a distinct environment on its own. Pedestrian-friendly streetscapes such as tree-lined wider boulevards and distinctive lighting encourage residents to walk to public transit, work, stores and recreational amenities.


This 14 hectare development is located on the former site of the Calgary General Hospital. It is a three phase multi-residential and mixed use development covering 17 sites in total. In 2003, eight sites in Phase 1 were sold for development as mixed-use buildings. In 2005 four of the five sites in Phase 2 were sold for mixed-use development with the fifth site subsequently sold in 2010 as an attainable and affordable housing project. One site in Phase 3 at 1009 Centre Av NE is pending sale expected to close later this year. For more background on the conception and early development of The Bridges project see www.thebridges.ca.
