Anthem Properties Group has announced its acquisition of a 2.43 acre parcel in Calgary’s Hillhurst-Sunnyside neighbourhood, the former site of national public broadcaster CBC/Radio-Canada.
Anthem – which has already developed residential, commercial, and retail projects with an aggregate value of approximately $5 billion – also announced that it will be redeveloping the area into a townhouse community.
As of press time, Anthem is still in the approval process with the City of Calgary.

The radio facility in the newly acquired 1724 Westmount Boulevard operated for nearly 6 decades before the broadcaster moved its operations to a new location last fall.
“We are pleased with the acquisition of the former CBC/Radio-Canada site and our proposal to develop high quality townhomes in the Hillhurst-Sunnyside neighborhood,” Anthem CEO Eric Carlson said.
“Anthem is committed to Calgary as a core market for its diversified portfolio of residential and commercial properties. We see Alberta as a strong alternative to Toronto and Vancouver for businesses and families.”
