Bridlewood Affordable Housing

Location: Calgary, AB

Bridlewood affordable housing consists of 62 new residential units along with a stand-alone Community Hub, a main street like gathering area, and a play space for children. The wood-framed units are a mix of 49 stacked town homes and 13 traditional side-by-side units. The stacked variants were constructed in 7 buildings, with 7 units per building over a shared car port. The traditional side-by-side townhomes were constructed in two-building sets, and each unit has an attached single-car garage. 48 of the units are two bedrooms (14 of which are designated as barrier free), with the remaining 14 being four-bedroom dwellings.

All of the townhomes were constructed from wood frame and target an energy efficiency goal of 26% to 50% better than the 2015 NECB. Durability and long-term lifecycle operations and maintenance were also key considerations, ensuring the development provides quality, affordable housing to Calgarians for many years to come.

The project also includes a community garden, community activity zones, and pathways throughout for focused pedestrian circulation. The build is located within walking distance to a shopping plaza and other neighborhood amenities.

While Graham’s client is The City of Calgary, the project is ultimately owned and operated by Calgary Housing.
