Located at the corner of Bow Valley Trail and Benchlands Trail (next to the Coast Hotel and Grizzly Paw Brewery), the Shops of Canmore received development approval from the Canmore Planning Commission on June 29, 2017.
The development, which is on privately-owned land, includes four separate buildings, public amenity spaces, including a plaza on the corner. There will be significant improvement to areas that are not part of the property, but are public spaces. That includes the pathway along Bow Valley Trail as well as amphitheatre style seating along the slope adjacent to Benchlands Trail.
Starting in January 2018, work will begin on the project, including removing trees from the lot.
The development will have bike parking, 122 vehicle parking stalls, including 37 in an underground parkade. Approved uses in the project include retail, restaurants, convenience stores, and offices.
