Calgary, Alberta

The phase 3 development at the Covenant Health Evanston Campus, currently under construction, is planned as a 120 unit Seniors Independent Living Facility. The 3 storey wood-frame building is stepped across the sloping site with a partial underground parkade for 53 stalls. In this facility, residents live independently in one or two bedroom apartments with kitchenettes and fully accessible washrooms. The units range in area from 550sf to over 800sf. Residents will be served three meals a day in a grand dining room with cathedral ceilings and a two storey window wall facing southeast. Other amenities include a chapel, salon, wellness centre, country kitchen, library and numerous lounge areas. Generous gardens will surround the building with a private fenced courtyard with south orientation, complete with benches, BBQ and fountains.

“Evanston Summit is the final building of a Community Campus of Care for Seniors in Northwest Calgary. FWBA completed the design for all three buildings. With Evanston Summit, they adapted without difficulty and addressed our evolving ideas for market housing for Seniors. Their design efforts have resulted in a clever stepped building design with beautiful and distinct warm interiors in all the public spaces. The suites are efficient and well-laid out with good light and accessible open aspects to all the spaces.”
