NW Calgary Home Sales & Development Can Resume in 2016



After a development freeze in the city’s northwest, due to sewer capacity in the areas, City hall has finally given developers the green light to resume development in the fall of 2016. A new sewage pipeline will be installed through Bowness soon, using a new tunnel-digging machine that will save the city time and money.

City hall halted development across a massive swath of northwest Calgary, with few exceptions, essentially banning growth in a dozen entire communities, including Royal Oak, Tuscany and Rocky Ridge, along with parts of a few others. [Calgary Herald]

Construction companies are now lined up to start building more than 200 homes and several businesses as soon as the new sewer line is installed, with development resuming in September 2016. The new line will accommodate growth in the NW up to 2026.

The new sewer pipeline will extend from the northwest corner of Shouldice Park, across the Bow River, beneath the Trans-Canada Highway, north on 67th Street N.W. and will end on Bow Crescent. [Calgary Herald]
