Evanston Towne Centre is a 10-building retail centre designed to meet the needs of one of Calgary’s fastest growing communities. The 10-acre site includes dining, retail, medical, and financial amenities.
The design emphasizes the pedestrian realm with plazas, features, street furniture, and landscaping. The public space is further animated by multiple patios and rest areas.
Continuous storefronts are lined with promenades set back from the property line, and running parallel to city sidewalks. This design creates large green strips and landscaped areas, helping to create a walkable, attractive environment.
Buildings are uniform in height, and all exhibit a low profile and human scale with an overall aesthetic that is both warm and contemporary.
The site exhibits a consistent design vocabulary: individual storefronts are distinguished through articulation and a variety of complementary materials. Uniform glazing and masonry and timber accents tie the site together.
