Formed in 1997, the Victoria Crossing Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ) is a collaboration of merchants and businesses working together to promote and improve the community of Victoria. The area lies just south of Calgary’s downtown core, between 6th Street SE and 2nd Street SW and between 10th and 17th Avenues.

We are going to meet at 12:55 Friday October 23rd at the prairie chicken (big middle structure in the middle of campus) and leave no later than 1:05. The tour will only take about an hour, but some have expressed interest in  hanging out in the area and going for a brew after.

The tour will be given by David Low, the Executive Director of the Victoria Crossing BRZ.

Personally, this is one of my favorite areas in Calgary, especially for the night life. The area is still in the midst of developing, so it will be amazing when it is done. We will have a first hand look at what it takes to create a vibrant urban area and the problems one can encounter along the way.

The tour is free for all UrbanCSA members.

Please contact andrew.sedor@urbancsa.org to confirm attendance.
