East Village Master Developer CMLC has moved headquarters by trading one historical landmark for another. The team has gone from the historic Hillier Block on 8 Ave. SE to the historic St. Louis Hotel right across the street. Before setting up shop in Hillier Block, CMLC occupied yet another heritage building that was restored and renovated – the historic Simmons Building on the bank of the Bow, now EV’s favourite gathering/noshing headquarters.
All summer long, CMLC is hosting an EV Neighbourhood Series in 5th Street Square, right in the heart of our village. From board games to bingo, brunching to dancing, there are fun-for-all activities happening in July and August. Whether you’re brand new to the neighbourhood, not here yet but coming soon, or one of the original EV pioneers, 5th Street Square is the place to get together and show off your skills.
It’s Canada’s 149th birthday on July 1, 2016 and Calgarians are throwing a huge celebration. East Village is the perfect hub for all your Canada Day partying. There’s enough happening in and around the neighbourhood to keep you busy all day long. Paint a maple leaf on your cheek, wrap a flag around you like a cape and hit one or all of these patriotic events on Canada’s big day.
