Located in the new master-planned lakeside community of Mahogany, Westman Village sits on a 13.6-acre site owned by the Jayman Group. As one of the largest real estate endeavours in Calgary for some years, the goal was to create a cohesive, vibrant community that offers diverse housing options for all ages and income levels. This vision is realized through 900 homes spread across 20 residential buildings, including rental units, condominiums, townhomes and seniors housing. At its core are the recreational and social amenities, where residents of all ages can gather and interact.
Designing Westman Village brought forward an interesting challenge for NORR, as its design would reflect the tone for the entire Mahogany community. During the concept development phase, limiting shadow impacts on the surrounding residential and park spaces was an important determinant in distributing the height and density on the site. Using a combination of traditional and contemporary architectural styles, reflected through clean lines, earth tones, wood accents and low pitch roofs, Westman Village appeals to a wide variety of demographics while maintaining its own identity. Accessibility, particularly throughout the winter, is addressed with tunnels and covered walkways to create a resort-quality urban village in a suburban setting. NORR provided services for Reflections, Odyssey Buildings one and two, the Journey Club and the Amenity Centre.
With 90% of Westman Village’s parking provided via underground parkades, it maximizes the use of land while minimizing the vehicle impact on the pedestrian realm to create a more harmonious experience between the pedestrian and the streetscape. Seniors with all levels of abilities are provided with housing options ranging from independent living to assisted care. Combined with the rental units, condominiums, and luxury townhomes, Westman Village promotes social integration amongst various demographics, helping to solve the problem of social isolation for seniors.
