15-Acre, 158,300 Sq-Ft Bow River Shopping Centre Opens in Calgary


The Bow River Shopping Centre in the Bowness neighbourhood of Calgary is now open for business and it’s in a prime location.

Located at 3428 69th Street, it’s right off of the Trans-Canada Highway where the highway meets Sarcee Trail to form one of Calgary’s busiest intersections. It’s also near the Canada Olympic Park, owned by WinSport, a large sports and recreation complex established for the 1988 Winter Olympics.

The Bow River Shopping Centre sits on a 15.2-acre site — that will eventually also include a 400-unit residential complex — and consists of 158,300 sq. ft of retail price, with a Real Canadian Superstore taking up 86,200 sq. ft as the anchor tenant.

A site plan also indicates that Phase 2 of the Bow River Shopping Centre will be located across 69th Street and include additional retail spaces. No details about Phase 2 have been announced, but a leasing brochure says that there will be “several opportunities available for tenants in a wide range of sizes for CRU, midsize box, restaurants, quick service food, fashion, and many more.”

In a press release announcing the centre’s opening, Stefan Savelli, Senior Vice President of Mixed-Use Development for ONE Properties, said “We look forward to seeing Bow River continue to grow with local and national tenants contributing to the unique retail mix.”
