Qualico Communities purchased the land in 2007, after which the City of Calgary began prioritizing growth in the area. As a result, there’s a new Costco location on the adjacent Tsuut’ina Nation, an anchor for many other amenities. Also, about 10 minutes away is the Shawnessy shopping district which includes a YMCA, library, movie theater and several grocery stores, retail outlets and restaurants.

The first phase of development at Vermilion Hill includes a new storm pond with a protected stand of trees. Future phases will include multi-use parks, land designated for the construction of a public college, as well as a local commercial area.

While Vermilion Hill went through the usual planning approval process, one approval particularly appreciated by Qualico communities came from the Tsuut’ina Nation, whose lands border the development site. From the beginning, Qualico Communities forged a working relationship with several representatives, Elders and many residents of Tsuut’ina. “We are grateful for the collaboration we shared with our neighbors and it was a great honor to have had two separate pipe ceremonies to bless the land,” Wulder said.
