West District–Where Life Happens.

West District is Calgary’s newest master planned community, located in the southwest quadrant of the city. The community is guided by six principles including creating a vibrant neighbourhood with comfortable design that blends seamlessly with the existing communities.

West District - Multi Use Area

West District is guided by a team of experienced and award-winning developers and builders, urban planners, architects and landscape architects.

Driven by the vision and passion of George Trutina, President and owner of the Truman Group of companies, the inspiration for West District was derived through his world travels, searching out and experiencing communities that exemplify the best principles of cutting edge urban design. Truman’s successful and passionate 35-year track record of community building and community engagement has lead to the creation of Truman’s visionary community, West District.

On March 14th, the master area structure plan for West District was unanimously approved by the City of Calgary. Over the next decade, 70 acres of land in the northwest corner of Old Banff Coach Road and 85th Street SW will be transformed into a vibrant, mixed-use neighbourhood that will redefine urban living and working in Calgary.

Guiding Principles

The following guiding principles express the desired characteristics of the neighbourhood, consistent with a vision for a vibrant, compact and diverse community and should be followed to influence the form of all future development in West District.

Green areas and community spaces provide a welcome area for residents, and a chance to relax and enjoy recreational opportunities close to home. Year-round programming helps people stay active and connected with their neighbours.
