Downtown West End News
Downtown West End Community Association
Situated between 8 Street SW and 14 Street SW and between the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks and the Bow River, Calgary’s Downtown West is a well-established “vertical village” neighbourhood which is also still evolving its identity. We’re a unique, mixed neighbourhood: we are historic, multi-ethnic, expanding, vertical – as well as artistic and green-minded… all of which contribute to the City of Calgary’s emerging world-class status.
