The Hopewell Arbour Lake Development is envisioned to encompass a mix of housing options that can cater to diverse individuals at all stages of life – from multi-family units to semi-detached and single-family homes. At full build-out, the community will include approximately 890 homes/units and 2,200 residents, and will be part of the Arbour Lake Residents Association.
The community is being carefully designed with the values and vision of the Arbour Lake Community in mind. High-quality housing, generous green space, parks and thoughtfully planned neighbourhoods and pathways will help define the area and will allow for successful connections and integration with the broader community.
The site’s location is well-served by amenities, transit, and roads such as The Crowfoot Crossing commercial centre, Crowfoot Trail, Stoney Trail, and Crowfoot LRT Station.

The Land Use Redesignation
& Outline Plan Application
The City of Calgary currently identifies the Hopewell Arbour Lake lands as Special Purpose – Future Urban Development District (S-FUD). This designation applies to lands awaiting urban development and accommodates a limited range of temporary uses.
In order to change the designation and allow for residential development, the Hopewell Arbour Lake site requires a Land Use Redesignation (rezoning) and an Outline Plan. A Land Use Designation is a legal control on the use and intensity of development on a parcel of land and is defined in the Land Use Bylaw. An Outline Plan is a site plan that ensures a workable distribution of land uses, open space and road networks.
We’re currently preparing the application. Prior to submission, we’re meeting with local residents and community groups to hear their ideas and receive feedback on our preliminary vision and project concept. We’ll keep residents engaged and informed throughout the application process – this includes informing residents of any revisions that are made to the plan, and the reasoning behind them.
