Night lights in EV ✨
A new chapter is starting for the historic St. Louis Hotel! The search is on to find a commercial operator for the space, which means that Calgarians are not too far away from experiencing the Louis once again.
We picture a hospitality business with an artisan spirit, like a speakeasy bar or craft brewpub. What do you imagine for the St. Louis Hotel? Tell us in the comments!

You could say that Alt Hotel is thinking inside the box with their modular construction program!
152 modular rooms will be placed over the next 6-8 weeks to build the hotel's structure. We can't wait to watch @althotel take shape!
Thanks for sharing this amazing shot of EV @neil_zee!
East Village is pretty darn cool. Then it rains and it's wow!! #capturecalgary #evnow
It's an exciting day for N3 condo residents – @timhortons just opened in the podium of the building!
Tip for N3 and EV residents: there's a separate room that can be booked for condo board or community meetings.
We think this calls for celebration with a coffee and donut! ☕️🍩
