The West Campus Development Trust was created by the University of Calgary to oversee the development of the lands known as West Campus. Responsibilities of the Trust include finalizing a Master Plan, seeking subdivision and land use designation, and seeking developers and builders for the West Campus lands. Thereafter the Trust will sublease and provide ongoing management of the improvements as applicable.
The Board of Directors for the Trust is up to fifteen people including community representative, students, faculty, University administration, business leaders and development experts. The Board is a volunteer Board.
The West Campus financial model provides an innovative approach to land development. It is based on a unique public-private development model. The development will maximize the return on the land for the benefit of the University.
