THE PROJECT

The New Central Library, located just east of City Hall in East Village, will be 240,000 square feet of functional, flexible, beautifully designed space. The NCL (as its friends call it) is a friendly city icon that invites all Calgarians to gather, learn, read, play, be challenged, relax, hang out and connect.

The $245 million project is a destination for Calgarians and visitors from around the world. Along with the National Music Centre, it’s another important civic institution and architectural icon within the East Village community.
