An innovative infill community in west Calgary and an upscale townhome development in University District were winners at this year’s Mayor’s Urban Design Awards.

These honours, held every second year, recognize the standout work of designers, architects and artists in Calgary. This year’s winners and submissions that earned honourable mentions were unveiled during a gala event at the Calgary Central Library on Oct. 24.

“Recognizing the people behind our vibrant buildings and spaces in our city is important,” said David Down, the City’s chief urban designer. “Well-designed space make people feel welcome, improves safety and accessibility and creates a memorable sense of place.”

There were 98 entries evaluated across the competition’s 12 categories.


Truman’s Noble, a multi-family development also in University District, and Park Point, a condo skyscraper by Qualex-Landmark in Calgary’s Beltine District each earned an honourable mention in the Urban Architecture category.

“We are thrilled to have Park Point recognized for excellence in urban design and achievement in enhancing the quality of life in Calgary,” says Jordan Beach, Qualex-Landmark’s vice-president, sales and marketing. “Qualex-Landmark is deeply committed to building homes that continue to exceed homeowners’ expectations.”
