Currently under construction, Evanston is a 10-building comprehensive retail centre designed to meet the needs of one of Calgary’s fastest growing communities. The 10-acre site will be anchored by a grocery store and will include dining, retail, medical, and financial amenities.
- The design emphasizes the pedestrian realm with plazas, features, street furniture, and landscaping. The public space is further enlivened by multiple patios and rest areas.
- Continuous storefronts are lined with promenades set back from the property line, and running parallel to city sidewalks. This design creates large green strips and landscaped areas, helping to create a walkable, attractive environment.
- Buildings are uniform in height, and all exhibit a low profile and human scale with an overall aesthetic that is both warm and contemporary.
- The site exhibits a consistent design vocabulary: individual storefronts are distinguished through articulation and a variety of complementary materials. Uniform glazing and masonry and timber accents tie the site together.
