The design respects local context in scale and quality of materials, and includes third-storey walkouts, adding to an active facade that helps to integrate the building into this pedestrian-oriented neighborhood.
The design includes two levels of below-grade parking; a large patio above the parkade entrance provides an outdoor space for the daycare tenant.
Garrison Corner reinforces the mixed use nature of this popular and highly walkable neighborhood, and with a mix of grade-level tenants that include Village Ice Cream, Cobs Bread, Davids Tea, and Ripe Tomato Pizza, the building is already a local hub.
Garrison Corner is a three-storey mixed-use development in Marda Loop, a fashionable Calgary neighborhood recognized for its successful mixture of commercial and residential uses. Abugov Kaspar designed the base building along with interior lobby and common spaces. Garrison Corner adds to the neighborhood’s diversity of uses by providing office, medical, financial, retail, restaurant, and daycare space all in one development.
