Red Deer brings innovation to community-building

Capstone builds a vital, vibrant community for now and the future

What would it be like to create a community that’s both close to nature and to city life, a place where Red Deerians could work, socialize and recreate, with virtually everything they want right on their doorstep?

In a busy, ever-changing world, the opportunity to live, work and play in a community that truly feels like home – now, and tomorrow – is essential. That belief is at the heart of the City of Red Deer’s approach to its Capstone development.

Working in collaboration with internationally renowned urban design firm Gehl, a visionary 20-year master plan evolved for this welcoming, destination neighbourhood where the next generation of Red Deerians will live, work and play – a community that places Red Deer at the forefront of city-building in Alberta, and in Canada.

Investing in a promising future

The Capstone vision reaches as far back as 2009, when The City realized the potential of transforming the former quarry and civic yards into a modern, liveable river-side community close to everything Red Deer has to offer.

Indeed, Capstone is just the latest innovation for this city perfectly positioned in the heart of Alberta’s population as well as its business, industry and manufacturing sectors.

Since 2015, The City and Province have invested more than $935 million into the region. The Red Deer Regional Hospital expansion, for example, will increase the capacity of one of Alberta’s busiest hospitals, positioning Capstone as an ideal location for healthcare professionals looking for easy access to work, home and recreation. Other nearby investments include the $207 million Red Deer Justice Centre, the $36-million G.H. Dawe Community Centre expansion, and the $113.5 million Bowden Re-Refinery. Together, these projects are helping fuel the economic growth of Red Deer, and bringing a workforce that could find their home in Capstone.

With a college that provides a highly skilled and educated workforce, in addition to support for entrepreneurs, tech and applied sciences, The City’s vision caters both to the present and the future.

The lifestyle people want

But a community is about more than location. Capstone’s ambitious and detailed master plan brings new forms of multi-family homes and new prospects for people looking for something different – a community where river-side living and affordability come together beautifully.

The future envisions more than 2,000 new homes and 5,000 new residents, and at the heart of the plan are people-first principles that will ensure Capstone sets the standard for future development in the region.

Already surrounded by experiences, amenities and services that most new communities only dream of, residents will enjoy exploring riverfront trails, shopping the commercial park of stores and services, and relaxing and socializing in the thoughtfully considered public gathering spaces. For adventures farther afield, walking access leads to the movie theatre, into downtown and much more.

The first development within the planned community is Capstone Park, by Calgary’s Brad Remington Homes. With Capstone Park sales launching in April to significant interest from potential residents, the project is setting the stage for what’s to come for Red Deer.
