Mckenzie Towne Community Overview

McKenzie Towne is a master planned residential neighbourhood in the southeast of Calgary, Alberta being developed by Carma Developers LP. The community is bordered on the west by Deerfoot Trail, on the south by Marquis of Lorne Trail Highway 22X, on the east by 52 St. S.E., and to the north by the South Trail regional commercial centre along 130 Ave. S.E.

Mckenzie Towne boasts many recreational features, including: the McKenzie Town Hall containing the staff of the McKenzie Towne Council (which is the area homeowners association), a gymnasium, meeting and banquet facilities, and a private outdoor park area; a network of paved pathways and green spaces; a fountain and splash park; and numerous ponds also compliment McKenzie Towne. McKenzie Towne also contains one Separate School Board elementary school and a public elementary school is under construction and will be open for enrollment in 2010.

McKenzie Towne is designed as a Neotraditional Community to reflect a small town, complete with both street front retail, mid size commercial offerings, a variety of single family homes, apartments, town houses, churches, seniors care facilities, public and separate board elementary schools, and traditional architecture. The neighbourhood was based on the new urbanist movement and original concepts were crafted by Andreas Duany who was the same architect to model Seaside, Florida (the filming location of The Truman Show movie).

The neighbourhood is divided into four distinct areas: Inverness, Elgin, Prestwick, and High Street. Each of the three areas of Mckenzie towne offer complimenting architectural styles. Elgin features six styles of architecture designed to reflect Europe. English Cottage, Greek Revival, English Tudor, French Eclectic, Italianate, and English Arts & Crafts. Prestwick and Inverness follows four styles: Queen Anne (Victorian), Georgian, Craftsman, and National. High Street is the commercial area, designed by Gibbs Gage Architects. It features street oriented commercial with many small businesses and complemented with larger well known retail tenants and a major grocery store.

In 2006, the Calgary Catholic School District opened St. Albert The Great Elementary/Junior High school in the community.
