George C. King Bridge

Calgary’s Downtown East Village is more than just a trendy part of town. Comprising some of the earliest-settled land, East Village was home to the pioneering entrepreneurs who founded the city in 1875. Throughout the years, development spanned in the vicinity but much of East Village stayed unchanged tainted by negative public perception. It was only in 2003 that this strategic stretch of riverfront property would attract opportunities for regeneration.
