Downtown West Community Cleanup & Recycling Event

downtown is evolving: Century Gardens PARK
Century Gardens Park, a Calgary historic resource, was developed in 1975 to celebrate Calgary’s Centennial as an abstraction of the Rocky Mountains and Foothills. Now 40+ yrs old, the park’s mechanical and electrical equipment and some above-ground features are reaching the end of their lifecycle and need upgrading.
As part of the project, 65 diseased, damaged, or vandalized trees will be removed and replaced with 70 new trees. The new trees will be species that grow well in urban environments, placed in locations that promote better sight-lines through the park. The 16 healthy trees on-site will be left in place and protected during construction.
Completion expected in 2018; fencing is in place and the area will be closed off until project completion.
Multi-Family Buildings Now DivertING Food/Yard Waste
As of Nov. 1, 2017, multi-family complexes like apartments and condos are required to separate food & yard waste from the garbage for composting or diversion.

downtown WEST is evolving: VOGUE
"Vogue, a 35-storey, multi-use residential tower... has taken its place alongside midrise towers on 6th Avenue SW, adding the drama of 1930s art deco glamour, with strong vertical elements, a stone facade, a stepped back, ground-level public realm and a footprint that decreases towards the building’s crown."
