Anthem acquires former CBC/Radio-Canada Calgary location for residential development

July 4, 2018

Anthem Properties Group Ltd. has acquired 1724 Westmount Boulevard in Calgary for residential redevelopment.

The 2.43 acre site is in the popular family-oriented neighbourhood of Hillhurst-Sunnyside where CBC/Radio-Canada delivered radio, TV and online content for nearly six decades. The national public broadcaster moved its team and operations to a new, modern facility last fall.

Anthem is proposing to develop a townhome community with panoramic views of the river valley and downtown Calgary.

“We are pleased with the acquisition of the former CBC/Radio-Canada site and our proposal to develop high quality townhomes in the Hillhurst-Sunnyside neighborhood,” says Eric Carlson, CEO of Anthem. “Anthem is committed to Calgary as a core market for its diversified portfolio of residential and commercial properties. We see Alberta as a strong alternative to Toronto and Vancouver for businesses and families.”

Anthem has been working closely with the community and is currently following the approval process with the City of Calgary.
