dc.description.abstractCalgary has a significant stock of commercial buildings dating to the first decades of this century. The largest concentration of these is situated in a 22 block strip of 39.5 hectares adjacent to the Downtown, south of the CPR tracks. Many of the buildings have fallen into a state of disrepair and disuse. The lack of a municipal heritage by-law together with the potentially speculative nature of their location threatens the continuing viability of these heritage resources. Area history, and the existing social, economic, physical, and regulatory environments were assessed using published data and observation to determine the requisites for the development of a heritage area. Based on the present context, a concept plan is presented that outlines possible legislative, economic, and physical design initiatives for the creation of an Historic District to encompass Calgary's warehouses. Principles of historic preservation, economic revitalization and urban design are used to suggest the strategy for the implementation of Calgary's Warehouse District. The study demonstrates the interdependence of preservation, economic activity and physical design in area-wide conservation of historic resources.
