CALGARY, ALTA. — Genesis Land Development Corp recently announced the Alberta Municipal Government Board has approved commercial use of 185 acres of land in the northeast part of Calgary.
The OMNI Commercial Project lands are located near the intersection of Stoney Trail and Airport Trail in Rocky View County, which surrounds Calgary in a horseshoe shape to the west, north and east.
“This approval is the culmination of an intensive planning and consultation process between Rocky View County, The City of Calgary and Genesis. Genesis is excited to be able to move the planning process forward for these 185 acres and to make this multi-faceted and unique master planned destination a reality,” Genesis president and CEO Iain Stewart said in a statement.
The OMNI Calgary is a master-planned multi-use commercial destination featuring a home renovation section, an outlet mall, office space, a hospitality and wellness area, a “village” featuring outside retail, and a seniors living enclave.
“Branded as the OMNI, this new generation town centre destination is envisioned to be comprised of various retail, commercial and leisure concepts and elements that are intended to be constructed over the next several years,” added Genesis vice-president of land development Arnie Stefaniuk.
