Local input was key in the naming of Embassy Bosa’s East Village condo project. The B.C.based developer handed the reins over to Calgarians in a naming contest last year. “Evolution,” submitted by Lyndsey Skidmore, was the winning entry. “Evolution is a process in which something passes by degrees to a different stage,” Skidmore wrote as an explanation for the name in her online entry. “Calgary is expanding and being developed at an astonishing rate ... and I think East Village is about to be the place to be.” Skidmore’s winning selection earned her a trip for two to New York. The contest brought in nearly 200 entries.
