Community Overview

The new community at the 200 acre (80.9 hectare) site is based on the principles of smart growth and sustainable community design. The vision for Currie will build on the successful designs at Garrison Woods and Garrison Green to create an even denser community with a richer mix of land uses, housing types, and servicing innovations to achieve a more complete and integrated neighbourhood. Currie was designed to set a new standard in sustainable development. This includes traffic-calmed streets and pedestrian networks that bring most residents within a five minute walk of shops, parks, and public transportation and within 10 minutes of downtown Calgary.

Canada Lands Company has entered into a joint venture agreement with the highly respected Embassy Bosa Inc. for the development of 23 acres of mixed-use retail and multi-family residential development in the heart of the community.

As part of its commitment to memorializing the historical legacy of its sites, Canada Lands Company held a special ceremony in 2010 to formally dedicate two special commemorative parks: Valour Park and Victoria Cross Park. These linear parks pay tribute to Canada’s military and to those who served their country during the Second World War. Community engagement is ongoing regarding public art and greenspace initiatives as the community continues to evolve.

At full development, Currie is expected to include approximately 5,700 housing units of various types, 250,000 square feet (23,226 square metres) of retail space, roughly 615,000 square feet (57,135 square metres) of office space and 23 acres (9.3 hectares) of parks and open, accessible public areas.

Investment Opportunity

  • CCH Currie I LP signed a land agreement for the purchase of 23 serviced lots in the community of Currie. Of the 23 lots, 15 contained a carriage suite over the garage for a nanny, mother in law, or for rental.  The remaining 8 lots fit the standard home and detached garage.
  • The lots front onto a park and are located close to Masters Academy and are a 10 minute drive from downtown Calgary.
  • The community is based on ‘smart growth’ and ‘sustainable design’. All of the existing trees on the lots must be preserved and the adjacent parks etc. will be preserved. The lots will have access to the new urban services that are planned.
  • Currie has very tight architectural controls and restrictions as imposed by the developer (Canada Lands). As a result the community has a very consistent modern, urban and contemporary look.

Risk Factors

There is no secondary market for the investment and none is expected to develop. The Partnership will have limited liquidity; consequently, it would not suit investors who require immediate access to their investment. The Partnership’s business should be considered highly speculative due to the risks associated with the rapidly changing economic and market conditions. The Partnership will be investing in real property and these properties will always have value; however, given the nature of the real estate market it may not be possible to sell them as anticipated. Consequently, there is a risk that an investment in the Partnership may be lost entirely or in part.
