#OurYYC On the Road: Global News Hour at 6 in Quarry Park


Global Calgary is taking our show on the road to Quarry Park, a mini-downtown built on a former gravel pit. It’s a corporate community where you can live and work.

We’ll show you how it’s benefiting not just the people who live there, but all Calgarians.

WATCH Global’s Doug Vaessen takes a look at how Quarry Park came to be and the big vision behind it.

Watch as Linda Olsen, Gord Gillies and the News Hour team take our viewers to a neighbourhood that was seen as a rare opportunity ten years ago: hundreds of acres of inner city brown field development that could be turned into a commercial hub capable of competing for top-tier corporations around the world.

We’ll tell you how it evolved from a gravel pit, who bought it, and why it may one day become a commercial alternative to the downtown core.

You’ll also get a firsthand look into which energy company made an unprecedented move to the area, and how employees describe the facility’s cutting-edge design.

WATCH: When you think big energy you probably think downtown, but Global’s Tomasia DaSilva takes tour of Imperial Energy’s new campus in Quarry Park.

Join us on the west side of Quarry Park this Thursday Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. or tune in to the Global News Hour at 6.
