Calgary's University District has been busy with development action over the last few years, with a string of projects from various developers that began with Truman's Noble. With Noble now complete, Truman has been working on Maple, a 95-unit seniors residence that has seemingly flown under the radar.

The S2 Architecture-designed project has been under construction a little over six months, and is already nearing completion. Recent photos show the 4-storey building topped out with all windows installed and exterior cladding on most of the building. The cladding consists of white and charcoal fibre board, along with charcoal coloured brick at the main level.

An interesting features of this building will be a +15 style pedestrian sky-walk that connects to the neighbouring Cambridge Manor. The walkway will allow for residents in Maple to use the shared facilities of the much larger Cambridge Manor.
