Anthem Properties Group Ltd. has acquired 1724 Westmount Boulevard in Calgary for residential redevelopment.
The 2.43 acre site is in the popular family-oriented neighbourhood of Hillhurst-Sunnyside where CBC/Radio-Canada delivered radio, TV and online content for nearly six decades. The national public broadcaster moved its team and operations to a new, modern facility last fall.
Anthem is proposing to develop a townhome community with panoramic views of the river valley and downtown Calgary.
“We are pleased with the acquisition of the former CBC/Radio-Canada site and our proposal to develop high quality townhomes in the Hillhurst-Sunnyside neighborhood,” says Eric Carlson, CEO of Anthem. “Anthem is committed to Calgary as a core market for its diversified portfolio of residential and commercial properties. We see Alberta as a strong alternative to Toronto and Vancouver for businesses and families.”
Anthem has been working closely with the community and is currently following the approval process with the City of Calgary.
