Nestled on the western edge of the City of Calgary, the Tsuut’ina First Nation is embarking on an ambitious development that will help support the Nation economically for generations to come.
1,200 acres of land that will have direct access to the Calgary Ring Road – a 100 km highway network connecting the entire city of Calgary – will be transformed into three distinct communities. Taza Park in the north will house a mixed use community, entertainment offerings for the region and commercial retail that will serve not only the future residents within Taza but citizens of Calgary nearby. Taza Crossing will offer land to house innovative medical research and education campuses as well as light industrial uses and multi-family residential housing. Taza Exchange will be a dynamic new retail-focused development offering services currently underserved in the Calgary market.
Combined this development represents over $6 billion in investment and 14 million square feet of development anticipated to build over the next 20 years.
Craig led a team of over 30 Stantec team members to develop the land use concept, public realm strategy, urban design guidelines, stormwater management strategy, preliminary engineering services and water design. The foundation of these plans are the people of the Tsuut’ina Nation, their passion to build a future for their children and beyond and the opportunity to deliver the largest development on First Nation land in Canada that is ecologically responsible, innovative in its approach to urban development and respective of the culture of the Tsuut’ina Nation.
