Located along Bow Trail across from the Westbrook Mall, the constrained site informed the building design. The Closer to Home project will deliver more than just a mixed-use development. It will be a catalyst for ongoing development within the neighbourhood and will support families within the surrounding community and throughout Calgary to “stay together”.
The facility is fully accessible based on universal design standards and includes an extensive programming exercise, strong urban infrastructure, and an embedded system of social well being elements through the incorporation of community focused programs. This includes a family resource centre, an integrated indigenous cultural centre, and a rooftop amenity space. The operation of Closer to Home will be supported by several tenants with aligned values and goals including Akidemy Early Learning and Care and a cafe.
