Main Floor Retail | Second Story Residential Units | Lower Level Leasing Opportunities

In 1911, a developer by the name of John Hextall envisaged the area now known as Bowness as a high class bedroom community within reasonable traveling distance from Calgary. The hotel was built in 1955 directly in the heart of the town of Bowness, with several key tenants including the Royal Bank of Canada. Today, 50 years after its initial inauguration, Atlas Development Corporation aims to restore this landmark to a level of stature and glory that Mr. Hextall would have been proud of.


This prime retail location is strategically located right in the heart of the community of Bowness, and will be part of the rapid redevelopment of the community. The site is located on one of Calgary’s most established thoroughfares and offers excellent exposure and access for cars and pedestrians alike. The redevelopment of the Bowness hotel in to Hextall place will provide the area with additional amenities and increase pedestrian traffic along the main street of Bowness Road.


As one of Calgary’s 12 business revitalization zones, Bowness has experienced a resurgence in commercial activity, pedestrian traffic and visibility across Calgary as a desirable inner city neighborhood with easy access to services. House prices in Bowness in May 2006 averaged $317 000 for a single detached home and average income within in a 5 kilometer radius is projected to be at least $103 000 / household. As the city of Calgary continues to grow, the close proximity of Bowness to the university, downtown and easy access to other vital services has made this community an increasingly ideal place to live. With a small town feel, community activities such as the lagoon and enviably located next to the Bow river the community of Bowness has become a popular destination for higher income families to relocate
