We were pleased to work with The City and community in the stakeholder engagement process.  It is our hope that we can work together to explore the distribution of density on the site, the interface with our neighbours, and the allocation of the required public open space on the site.

Late last year, The City of Calgary sent Silvera the first set of comments The City received with regard to its Outline Plan and Land Use Application.

Although the Detailed Team Review (DTR) comments are extensive and varied, Silvera has responded to each as acknowledgement.

Some of the responses require further study and investigation, some require conversations with The City of Calgary, and many will be the result of further input from community stakeholders.

Based on this input, we will further refine our DTR responses.  Also based on this process, we anticipate a thorough and detailed re-writing of the Direct Control Land Use Districts (DC) to recognize the various site-specific elements to be considered in future development.

To see the most up-to-date studies, please go to Backgrounds and Studies.

June 19

Silvera for Seniors hosted about 100 residents of the Shaganappi community on June 19 for an open house on the future development of the former Jacques site off Bow Trail. The lively discussion was attended by Ward 8 Alderman John Mar and touched on issues ranging from traffic to planned uses for the site, which is envisioned as being an intergrated urban village focused on seniors. With construction still at least two years from starting, Silvera will study the feedback from the open house as initial planning for the redevelopment continues.



Various meetings held during the summer months to with the Community Project Team to discuss an the understanding of an “integrated vision” for Jacques.
