Highland Park reimagining could invigorate northwest community
The former Highland Golf Course in northwest Calgary could be host to a new kind of activity in the form of a major redevelopment.
Developer Maple Projects Inc. recently shared plans for its "reimagining" of the 21-hectare site – which would include up to 2,100 housing units as well as a commercial development along Centre Street N. – at an open house which drew, among others, members of the local community association, who believe the development could provide a boost to the area.
"Absolutely, it can be a huge benefit for the community,"
"Absolutely, it can be a huge benefit for the community," said Paul Engler, chair of the development committee for the Highland Park Community Association. "We are looking very much forward to it. We are working with the developer to come up with something that's awesome for them, for our future neighbours and for our existing neighbours."
