Historically, our "Spider Site" property has been used as a mechanic and body shop, a use which has detracted from the beauty of 14th Street. The property was purchased in 2016, and has begun the process of building a beautiful four storey building with office, medical, and retail uses. Once complete, the new building will be one of the flagship developments on 14th Street, and a vibrant community hub.
Certus Developments recently acquired a unique urban property with exceptional 4th Street frontage of more than 130 feet, wrapping the southwest corner of 19th Avenue and 4th Street SW.
This ideal location is situated in the heart of the eclectic Mission neighbourhood mixing, high-density residential, historic row housing, commercial offices, shops and restaurants. Mission’s desirable demographics have contributed to the success of many popular Calgary restaurants, including Earl’s, Mercato, Suzette Bistro, Phil and Sebastian’s, Anejo, Purple Perk, Starbucks and the recently opened A&W.
While Mission contains a number of smaller chef-inspired cafes, and sit down concepts, it has few QSR food service options, and none that match the frontage and exposure of 1905 4th Street.
Certus has a number of properties in Calgary’s inner city neighbourhoods, and we love this opportunity for a QSR food service concept. We believe the site’s unparalleled frontage, coupled with Certus’ redevelopment experience and expertise for creating unique character buildings, makes this an ideal flagship location for an urban-minded QSR brand.
MDC Properties and Certus Developments have teamed up to reimagine the single-tenant, large-format restaurant space formally known as Ric’s Grill. Our planned conversion of the space into several boutique storefronts will create a charming character statement designed to articulate a more intimate and epicurean offering for your brand.
Situated on the northeast corner of 8th Street and 15th Avenue SW, this location features prominent south and west exposure ideal for indoor or outdoor dining. This site sitd opposite the newly renovated Mount Royal Village Shopping Centre and the new Royal Development - a development featuring Urban Fare Green Grocers, Canadian Tire, and the prestigious 35-storey Royal Condominium Tower.
8th Street is the main connecter for commuter traffic from the Cities most affluent inner city communities including the historic Mount Royal neighbourhood, and is a part of the daily ritual ingrained into the commuter behaviour of area resident.
This site will be attractive to restauranteurs focusing on a quick service format requiring rapid transaction turnover, or to those restaurateurs offering a sit-down dining experience. Doubtless, both formats will benefit form the site’s superior access to both the lunch hour 8th Street office workers, along with the many nearby residents seeking dining options a short walk from their homes.
Recognizing the growing densification of the Beltline and the importance 8th Street plays in our daily commutes, the City of Calgary has begun work on a pedestrian promenade and boulevard that will run down the east side of 8th Street. The 8th Street Promenade will extend from the 17th Avenue retail corridor, through the Beltline and the downtown office core, where it will ultimately terminate at the Bow River. This Promenade will further cement 8th Street as one of Calgary’s busiest and most prominent downtown corridors.
The 8th Street Promenade, along with our improvements to the site, will make 1436 8th Street an ideal restaurant location. With some of the highest pedestrian traffic in the area, along with a large outdoor seating area that boasts outstanding afternoon and evening sun exposure, 1436 8th Street constitutes a rare opportunity.
While we await the transformation of the Tigerstedt Block, the retail strip has become a vibrant incubator to numerous start up artisanal food purveyors, including Sought and Found Coffee Rosters, Tokyo Street Market, Spirit Leaf Cannabis and a Pop Up Retail with vendors changing weekly.
Ghitter Block is the latest urban retail project by Certus Developments. Ghitter Block is situarted along Elbow Drive at entry to the Britannia Shopping Plaza. Britannia Plaza is currently home to Sunterra Market, and a unique and ecletic collection of exclusive stores, gourmet shops, and convenient services.
Ghitter Block will enhance the shopping and dinning experiences already enjoyed by local area residents, by curating a select group of retailers and food purveyors to create a boutique retail offering. Inspired character architecture that is both authentic and substantial will be the foundation upon which this opporunity is built.
