East Vil­lage sits on nearly 20 hectares in the heart of down­town Cal­gary be­tween Fort Cal­gary and the down­town busi­ness core near City Hall. It hugs the Bow River on the north, and 9th Av­enue S.E. on the south. Back in 1875 with the found­ing of the fort by the North-west Mounted Po­lice, East Vil­lage was down­town in its en­tirety. Over the years, the area fell on hard times. The neigh­bour­hood be­came known for its aban­doned fu­ture and va­cant lots. Since 2007, the changes have been dra­matic, with $113 mil­lion in in­fra­struc­ture im­prove­ments. Two ma­jor mixed-use res­i­den­tial projects with roughly 1,200 new con­dos have been an­nounced and sales will com­mence in March with the open­ing of the East Vil­lage Ex­pe­ri­ence Cen­tre.
