Why Partner With Us?

Once complete, University District in Calgary’s northwest will span 200 acres, including 40 acres of open space, 15,000 residents, 1.5 million square feet of office space and 300,000 square feet of retail along nine blocks.
What We’re Looking for in Residential Partners
We set high standards for sustainable neighbourhood design and work with partners who share our dedication to creating premier urban residential communities in Calgary. They share our values of innovation and quality design, align with our vision, and are committed to bringing heart and uniqueness to the community. With strong collaboration sewn into our relationships and high standards for quality, our builders set the stage for what’s to come.

The Land Lease
The Trust will offer leases to developers on parcels for a pre-paid 99-year term. The lease is in the form of prepaid rent, meaning it is a one-time upfront payment for the term. At the end of the lease term, there will be an option to negotiate an extension or terminate. If the lease terminates the Trust will pay the leaseholder fair market value for the residence which sits on the land. Residential opportunities may be advertised through a Request for Proposal process.Learn about procurement
