Completion of East Village's first purpose-built rental project approaches

The redevelopment of the East Village has brought new life to an area that was once a no man's land of unsightly industrial buildings and decaying historic landmarks.

An influx of new residents has breathed life into the area, but as modern condo towers rose and filled up with buyers, one thing was lacking: rental options.

Brimming with old-fashioned holiday cheer, inner-city neighbourhoods are a shopper's dream

The holidays are just around the corner, and what better way to kick off the season then a visit to one of Calgary's trendy, inner-city neighbourhoods to stroll through a collection of locally owned ateliers, art galleries and vintage stores.

According to Calgary business improvement associations (BIAs), local shopping is expected to be popular this year, and retailers in inner-city shopping districts are primed for an influx of visitors.

Pop-up goes the store

Calgary retailers making the most of high vacancy rate


Calgary commercial experts say local retailers are becoming increasingly savvy in their fight for market share, challenging the traditional brick-and-mortar concept of doing business in favour of a pop-up model.


''I do think the trend is becoming more popular because of online shopping," said Barclay Street Real Estate retail associate Amy McGregor, who is working with Calgary Economic Development to research pop-up shops and facilitate a process for new business owners by connecting with landlords.


"Online retailers kind of want to dip their toe in the retail market and it's a low investment way to do that. There's more opportunity and more likelihood that landlords will give them the opportunity for the shorter-term leases."

Rethinking retail

Calgary's collection of decades-old malls are getting much-needed facelifts

Consumer demand is driving a wave of commercial real estate development in the city with several major shopping centres poised to get major makeovers this year and next.

Deerfoot Mall in the city's northeast, as well as Northland Village Mall and Stadium Shopping Centre in the northwest, are all in the planning or development stages of redevelopment.

Michael Kehoe, an Alberta-based retail specialist with Fairfield Commercial Real Estate Inc., said the collective changes reflect landlords' attempts to breathe new life into decades-old retail hubs, of which there are plenty in the city.
