Snapshot: Calgary’s Centre City



You may not already know this, but the City of Calgary has a Centre City Plan in place to ensure Calgary’s core is always thriving. Since there’s been some buzz about this plan online, we thought we’d explore who and what makes up Centre City.

Centre City is made up the communities between the Bow and Elbow Rivers, 17 Avenue South and 14 Street West, including the following communities: Downtown, East Village, Stampede Park, East Victoria Crossing, Victoria Crossing Centre, Connaught Centre, West Connaught, West End, Eau Claire and Chinatown.

Facts & Stats About Centre City: 

  • 161,500 Calgarians work in the area
  • Over 6,000 businesses operate in the area
  • Centre City businesses generate 25% of the City’s business and property tax revenue
  • Over 39,000 people live in this area
  • There are over 25 parks in the area

Significant change is expected over the next 30 years to accommodate the addition of up to 40,000 new residents and over 60,000 new employees by 2035. New services, buildings, and public spaces are required to successfully integrate this dynamic growth.
