Future Plans

9th Avenue Parkade & Innovation Centre

A strategic future-focused development is coming to life, thanks to a partnership between Calgary Parking Authority (CPA) and Platform.

The 9th Avenue SE Parkade & Innovation Centre will combine 500+ stalls of parking across 5 levels with a space for Calgary innovators called 'Platform'.

Platform will serve as a multi-use space for learning, projects, makers and community. This innovation centre will help the city’s best minds and ideas move forward, turning concepts into entrepreneurial opportunities and scale local businesses into international success stories.

Slated to break ground in 2019, the project will comprise a total of approximately 250,000 square feet and will be accessed directly off 9th Avenue at 3rd Street SE, creating a central point for visitors heading into the downtown core and East Village.

The building’s unique design – created by architects Kasian and 5468796 – will allow for full conversion of the building into commercial or residential uses as future generations of Calgarians lessen their reliance on traditional parking structures with the increase in autonomous vehicles.
