The plan area exists in northwest Calgary, within the existing community of Arbour Lake, and is known as the “Aurica Hawkwood” homestead. The Hawkwood Family were the original owners of the lands which make up the community of Arbour Lake and the plan area was, until recently, the home of Aurica Hawkwood.
This homestead was acquired by Hopewell Residential in 2016 for the purposes of creating an infill development anticipated to contain a variety of residential uses. The proposal for the plan area builds upon the guiding principles found in the Calgary Municipal Development Plan (MDP) and its corresponding Developed Areas Guidebook. Hopewell envisions the Arbour Lake Development to encompass a mix of housing options that cater to a diverse set of individuals from all stages of life. The Outline Plan proposes multi-residential, semi-detached and single-detached units. At full build-out, the community will include approximately 800 units and around 2,000 residents and will be part of the Arbour Lake Residents Association.
The design of the Arbour Lake Development reflects the values and vision of the Arbour Lake Community. High-quality housing, purposeful green space, parks and thoughtfully planned neighbourhood pathways will help define the area and will allow for successful connections and integration with the broader community.
Known locally as the ‘Hawkwood Farm’, the Plan Area comprises an area of approximately 43 acres and is located in the northwest Calgary community of Arbour Lake. The lands are owned by Hopewell Residential, an award-winning community developer and home builder headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
