Calgary’s Heritage Buildings, More Than Brick and Stone


When Calgarians shared input about their main street neighbourhoods, many said that community character and heritage was something they wanted City Planners to consider for the future of these areas. We hit the streets with The City’s Senior Heritage Planner, Clint Robertson, to learn more about heritage sites in Calgary—what are they, why are they important, and how we identify them.

There are thirteen main streets with identified heritage buildings. For a more in-depth look at the history of these areas, visit the main streets web pages below.
