Downtown West is a diverse neighbourhood, home to residential towers, businesses, historical buildings and post-secondary institutions. This area has been the site of development since Calgary’s earliest beginnings, and continues to be over 130 years later.
Adding to this community’s vibrancy and unique character, The City of Calgary is undertaking a number of initiatives to improve the neighbourhood. It also allows the building owners to enhance the appearance of the buildings at no cost to them and also allows muralists to showcase their works publicly in Downtown Calgary.
The Facade improvement program (FIP) , The Community Mural Program and The neighbourhood beautification program are a few of the various projects and initiatives The City of Calgary is undertaking.
More information on these various projects and initiatives can be found below.
