Character
Areas

The master plan divides East Village into four main “character areas”. Each area has a distinct identity and activities, and uses have been planned with the area’s geography, history and suitability in mind.

Gateway

Our Connected Calgary

Gateway links East Village to the world from many directions; it’s the first area you see entering the city along Memorial Drive from the airport and it connects EV to Bridgeland and eastern downtown. People working out at the YWCA or sweating through exams at Bow Valley College will be able to change horizons by crossing the street,. A long stretch of Gateway borders RiverWalk and the Bow River, and residents will enjoy great views out over the promenade to the water.
