The climbing centre will have over 7000 sq. ft. of climbing surface with wall heights from 15-45 ft. The climbing wall will have views to the community space and the Three Sisters mountains.
Community Space includes a 1,000 sf gallery for the Canmore Arts & Artisans Guild (CAAG), 2,000 sf fitness amenity, 4 multipurpose rooms, a community atrium with performance stage, food tenants, a fireplace and exterior deck, and multiple bike and stroller parking areas.

Elevation Place was designed to reflect the various degrees of use by tourists, non-permanent residents, and permanent residents. It will function as a venue for large gatherings or competitions, a gateway to more lasting relationships in the community, and a place for neighbours and friends to extend their daily interactions.
