Blackfoot Trail SE

9200 Blackfoot Trail SE.

Hi there!

We’re proposing a land use change and we’d love your feedback.


The site is located along Blackfoot Trail SE. The site is bordered by a business park to the north, an escarpment to the east and south, Blackfoot Trail SE to the west and low-density residential development further to the west. The site is also in close proximity to Sue Higgins Off-Leash Dog Park and commercial areas north of the site.


The project is envisioned to facilitate multi-residential development of up to 6 storeys high or a maximum of 26 metres. It is anticipated that approximately 500 apartments and townhomes offering 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units will be constructed. A Development Permit will be submitted shortly after the land use redesignation and be processed concurrently. Development will be setback from the escarpment and facilitate the designation of new public open space along the ridge and connect to Sue Higgins Park.

The draft Heritage Communities Local Area Plan (LAP) identifies this site as “Neighborhood Flex,” which accommodates Mid-Scale buildings, and allows developments of up to 12 storeys. The proposed development is in alignment with the LAP. The LAP also encourages pedestrian friendly design which will be accommodated via sidewalk connections adjacent to and within the parcel.

*The draft Heritage Communities Local Area Plan has received 1st Reading from Council and is awaiting approval at the Calgary Metropolitan Region Board (CMRB) prior to proceeding to 2nd and 3rd Reading at City Council sometime in the Fall of 2023.*

A Direct Control District is being proposed due to the large amount of open space being proposed within the site plan. This is due to the escarpment and a development setback from that escarpment. The Direct Control District will limit the height to 26 metres and reduce the minimum density allowed on the site.

A Development Permit will be submitted a few weeks following the submission of the land use redesignation application. Please return to this website for future updates.


This project is envisioned to accommodate:

  • 500 residential units across a mixture of apartments and townhouse building forms
  • A mixture of 4, 5, and 6 storey buildings
  • Vehicle and bike parking
  • Increased connectivity to the regional pathway system and Sue Higgins Off-Leash Park


The QuantumPlace team met with a representative of the Acadia Community Association to present the proposed project and land use application. We value community input and will be hosting a digital open house to engage with the broader community, facilitating discussions and addressing any questions or concerns from community members.

Please check back for digital open house details shortly.
