Design Thinking: The Oxford-Wexford mixed-use project is a new development on the eastern edge of Calgary’s Beltline area. The vision for the neighbourhood, as set out in the City’s Beltline Plan, is to become “an authentic, livable and diverse, high-density urban community.” In response, the design features high-quality construction, public spaces and amenities.
The design explores the complement and stacking scenarios of a commercial podium and residential mid-rise and residential high-rise massing. Building masses are placed to ensure good sightlines, create air between buildings and respect setbacks outlined by the Area Development Plan and zoning bylaws.
Key Features: The development features 560 rental residential units with a mix of studio, one and two bedroom suites. An extensive amenity package is provided on the second floor, including a large outdoor terrace.
Size: Retail – 20,000 sq.ft.; Residential – 460,000 sq.ft. (568 units)
