The action in Marda Loop continues to roll along with RNDSQR's Courtyard 33 proposal reaching another recent milestone. An appeal against its recent approval from the City by some neighborhood residents was dismissed, and now the project is free to move forward. Courtyard 33, a 70-unit mixed-use project slated for development in Calgary's Marda Loop area, was approved by the City back in October 2018, but there was a subsequent appeal put forth based on the usual concerns over building height and traffic.

The appeal succeeded in delaying the project until late January. However, with the recent dismissal of the appeal by Calgary's Subdivision Development Appeals Board, RNDSQR is now focusing on sales and construction. To these ends, hoarding is already being installed in anticipation of a construction start.

RNDSQR has confirmed that the project is indeed going ahead now, and that they will be opening a sales centre in late February. They are hoping to break ground on the building sometime in March. The 6-storey building designed by 5468796 Architecture has been a high profile project from the get go with it's unique angular modern design, and courtyard feature. The added residents are expected to be a bonus for the neighborhood, as well as the extra retail fronting the 33rd Ave retail corridor.

SkyriseCalgary will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
