Calgary's new downtown plan seeks to benefit current residents, and attract new ones

You can always go downtown. At least that's what the song says.

Much has been written about the current woes of Calgary's Downtown Commercial Core. Office vacancies are approaching 30 per cent and many businesses and commuters are conspicuous in their absence from the area.

However, there are a significant number of Calgarians who have no intention of going anywhere, even after the workaday crowd goes home.

The 2017 Mayor's Lunch for Arts Champions celebrates the power of art

Beyond bricks and mortar, it's culture that speaks to the heart of the city. The annual Mayor's Lunch for Arts Champions is proof the arts community is not only alive, but thriving in Calgary.


This year's sold out lunch, held on March 22, once again brought together Calgary's business and art communities to recognize the important relationships that foster artistic achievement.


"We see leaders in our community create canvases for dreams to take shape," said Randy Ferguson, COO of Strategic Group, the Champion sponsor of the Mayor's Lunch. "That is what makes a great city. Not a good or a functional city, but a great city. One that people learn from, admire, and replicate."

Driving diversity

Film centre represents just one example of efforts to transform local economy, say officials

Film production may be the world's glamour industry, but in Calgary it is shooting to become a new driver of Alberta's diversified economy.

Last week, the $28.2-million Calgary Film Centre opened in a Calgary southeast industrial park, about 20 minutes from downtown. The new facility includes three new sound stages spread across a total of 50,000 square feet and three multi-purpose workshop spaces offering an additional 15,000 square feet.

Calgary Economic Development president and CEO Mary Moran said the film and television industry is just one sector being focused on in attempt to diversify the local economy. CED predicts it could provide an annual $500-million injection into the economy in as little as five years, compared to its $175-million share today.

Glass half full

Calgary Economic Development's top boss promotes collaboration, innovation

On the heels of flooding, low oil prices and, now, raging wildfires, Calgary Economic Development's top boss admits it might be easy for people in the province to see the glass half empty.

Yet Mary Moran, as well as other community leaders, urged those people to keep current conditions in perspective before claiming the end is near.

"These are historically challenging times for both Calgary and Alberta's economy," said CED's president and CEO, who likened the province's current situation to a game of Whac-a-Mole. "It seems we barely finished covering up the scars of the flood of 2013 when our number-one energy customer became our number-one very intense competitor.
