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.

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 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

First Reading Set for May 28th 2018

On behalf of the Greystone project team, we are pleased to announce that we been placed on the May 28th Council agenda for First Reading. During this meeting, Town’s Administration will present the Greystone Area Structure Plan and Neighbourhood Plan to Council for their information. Council may ask some clarifying questions of Administration, but Council will not debate the merits of either Plan that evening. The main purpose of the council meeting is for Administration to give an overview of the Plans to Council and to ask Council to set a date for a Public Hearing. The Public Hearing will be the opportunity for the applicant and any public stakeholder to make a presentation.

Once a Public Hearing date has been set, we will send a follow-up email to announce this milestone and invite members of the public to attend.  We are anticipating this date to be mid-June.

Draft Greystone Area Structure Plan and Neighbourhood Plan – Available Now

With consideration to the upcoming Council date of May 28th 2018, we want to give you the opportunity to read the Greystone Area Structure Plan and the Greystone Neighbourhood Plan that will be presented to Council.

Upcoming Opportunities for Input

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