Lift off for Broadway Malyan’s Canada masterplan
Broadway Malyan is targeting further design work on a huge development it masterplanned in Calgary – now that individual projects within it are coming to life
The global practice’s London-based masterplanning team created the blueprint for the 55 hectare East Village scheme in the Canadian city three years ago.
Now the development has received a major boost with the announcement of two mixed-use projects totalling 13,000m².
A Broadway Malyan spokesman told AJ the practice was hoping to win work on future projects within the East Village and elsewhere in Canada.
‘It is important we are able to deliver masterplans such as East Village but we are very much hoping to win work on the concept, strategic and detailed design stages of projects within them as well,’ he said.
The Calgary scheme could help the practice win work elsewhere in Canada and beyond, the spokesman added.
‘Broadway Malyan is working for a number of Canadian companies outside of Canada, such as Ivanhoe Cambridge in China and Brookfield in the UK, as a result of the money that is flowing out of Canada into emerging markets.
‘The practice is actively targeting further work for Canadian-based clients in and outside of the country with a fully integrated masterplanning and architectural offer.’
Bosa Development Corporation and Embassy Development will deliver the multi-phase, mixed-use Evolution project in the East Village. The aim is to attract a population of young, well-educated working professionals.
Meanwhile, the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation opened the 4th Street Underpass, a major north/south vehicle and pedestrian connector that has created a link between East Village and the Beltline Community.
