Who looks at a gravel pit and thinks, “I can turn this into a liveable neighbourhood?” Randy Remington does. The chairman of Remington Development Corporation is transforming a Lafarge Canada gravel pit into a southeast Calgary neighbourhood with more that 1.7 million square feet of commercial office space and 90 acres of park space next to the Bow River. Unlike other new neighbourhoods, Quarry Park isn’t on the edge of town and therefore contributing to the city’s urban sprawl. Instead, the new neighbourhood will add density within the city and sits on a proposed southeast LRT line.
