CITY OF CALGARY — The City of Calgary has broken ground on a multi-use development in the city’s Cornerstone community that will feature a fire station (rendering above) and a hazardous waste drop-off.

CALGARY – Ground has been broken on a new $16 million multi-purpose development in Calgary’s Cornerstone community.

The structure will include a fire station, a household hazardous waste drop-off and a future phase will include non-market housing, a release said.

“The Cornerstone Multi-Service Development reflects our commitment to integrated civic facility planning and our dedication to serving Calgarians better. Featuring a fire station and future affordable housing, this development will lower construction costs and increase operational efficiencies,” Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek said in a statement. “This is a responsible investment for our city’s future, one that will yield dividends in public safety, environmental sustainability and community prosperity.”

The development is aiming for LEED Gold certification and once completed will include advanced air quality ventilation designed with low-emitting building materials. 

Features in the fire station, such as improved acoustic separation between active and living areas and indoor environment controls related to lighting, daylighting and thermal comfort, have been included to support firefighters’ health and wellness, the release added.

“The Cornerstone Fire Station will support Calgarians by enabling the Calgary Fire Department to meet target response times and ensure we can continue to meet the demand for services for Cornerstone and surrounding communities as they continue to grow,” Fire Chief Steve Dongworth said.

The project is a collaboration between several City of Calgary departments including infrastructure services, the Calgary fire department, waste and recycling services and housing solutions.

The project is anticipated for completion by spring 2025.
