Highly walkable, Greystone is being designed for those who appreciate daily doses of outdoor beauty coupled with modern convenience.

Life in Greystone will feel uniquely Cochrane – rich with amenities, situated downtown, and nestled in the surrounding hills adjacent to the Bow River. The community will include diverse home choices, inviting streetscapes, a community pond, walk and cycle paths connected to the Bow River pathway network, and easily accessible commercial and recreation services including the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre next door. Greystone will also boast Bow River access, big sky beauty and quick access to both Rocky Mountains recreation and Calgary’s big city amenities, as both are just a stone’s throw away.

Get to know Greystone!

Our project team wants to share with you two new videos which answer the most frequently asked questions posed by stakeholders and the people of Cochrane.

Greystone’s Location

Greystone Concept Plan

On April 21, 2017, the Greystone Area Structure Plan (ASP) and Neighbourhood Plan (NP) applications were submitted to the Town of Cochrane. An ASP outlines high level policies for a site’s redevelopment while a Neighbourhood Plan provides more refined details on the placement of residential, commercial, greenspace and transportation networks. Once the Town’s internal and external review process is complete, the Greystone Project team will be making final amendments to the applications including the concept plan below.


Let Us Know What You Think

As land owners and community developers, we believe that investing in quality is the way to go. For us, it starts with taking the time to listen to you.

Ongoing stakeholder input has helped us refine key community features, including:

  • A small, vibrant main street and public plaza to provide retail and gathering space opportunities for residents and visitors
  •  A direct pedestrian connection across the community from east to west, bringing people to the future main-street retail area and public plaza. This connection also provides easy access to the Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre via walking or cycling
  •  A large centralized park to provide walkable active recreation to the plan area
  • Well-lit and safe walking paths throughout the neighbourhood
  • A broad mix of housing forms, from single detached to apartment style condos, suitable for all ages and family sizes
  • Residential homes situated near parks for ease of access
  • Multi-residential (condo buildings) near the pedestrian zone, plaza, and next to the new sports field to activate these public spaces and amenities

Public input was also sought in naming Greystone. Through community engagement, including an online poll, Greystone was selected as the preferred name for this new community.

Open Houses & Engagement

Online Open House via Facebook – Postponed Until Further Notice

The Greystone Project Team will be hosting a two-hour, live Q&A session with public participants on January 9th 2018. This online public engagement event will serve as an additional opportunity to have your questions answered by our team. We will have our planners, engagement specialist, and technical experts standing by to answer your live-streaming questions on our Facebook page. Following this event, we will produce a Summary Report of all the questions and our responses which will be published on our online platforms.

Our new Facebook page will serve as a primary destination for project updates, event announcements and public participation opportunities to keep the people of Cochrane informed and engaged through every phase of Greystone’s application process.

We appreciate the excellent turnout and input provided throughout the design and consultation process to date and believe our Greystone community plan has been strengthened as a result.

Upcoming Opportunities for Input

  • Application Submission & Circulation: After submission, the application will be circulated by the Town to surrounding residents for review and comment.
