The me­ta­mor­pho­sis has be­gun in earnest. The un­der­ground ser­vices and much of the in­fra­struc­ture work, a $108-mil­lion, three-year-plus project, is get­ting closer to com­ple­tion and now more of the re­de­vel­op­ment of East Vil­lage is just an ap­proval or two away from shift­ing to ac­tual above-ground re­tail­res­i­den­tial con­struc­tion.

A key to mak­ing the long- awaited re­birth of the area into re­al­ity was get­ting a f irst de­vel­oper to com­mit — and to be able to en­vi­sion East Vil­lage in the larger con­text of Cal­gary it­self, says Su­san Veres, vi­cepres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion for Cal­gary Mu­nic­i­pal Land Corp. (CMLC), which is over­see­ing the mas­sive project east of city hall and to the fringes of Fort Cal­gary be­tween the Bow River and Ninth Av­enue S.E.
