University of Calgary - West Campus District

Building a university district that promotes sustainable living, innovation, and economic development

Client: University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada and West Campus Development Trust
The northwest quadrant of Calgary is home to several major anchors including the University of Calgary's main campus, the Foothills Medical Center, and Children's Hospital. The West Campus District lies at the crossroads of all of these zones.

The district, at the doorstep of one of Canada’s major research university’s, will become a vibrant urban meeting ground for the university and the surrounding communities, providing a dynamic blend of housing, workspace and research space, and cultural, civic and retail amenities—all within walking distance of the University of Calgary, adjacent neighborhoods, and transit.

The plan aims to create an environment that reflects the University of Calgary's vision, mission, priorities, and academic plan; generate revenue to support learning, teaching, research and living; lead and support community-building in Calgary; and create a vibrant, diverse urban environment.

Following the approval of the master plan by the Board of Governor’s, the West Campus Development Trust (WCDT) was established in 2011 to implement the plan. A detailed planning process including community and city approvals is currently underway.

Corneil was Design Principal for this project while at Sasaki Associates and has continued to collaborate as a design consultant.
