cSPACE King Edward is an award-winning transformation of a vacant sandstone school and 3 acre site in Calgary into a LEED Gold mixed use, innovation hub for the cultural and creative sector. At the heart of the development is the repurposing of a municipally designated heritage school into a 47,500 s.f. multi-disciplinary arts, culture and community facility and arts-infused park. cSPACE is 100% leased with over 30 long-term tenants including industry organizations, mixed-discipline makers, artists and designers, and cultural non-profits.

cSPACE also provides a vibrant coworking space for freelancers, small businesses and non-profits to access flexible workspaces, networking opportunities and shared services to support their enterprise growth. Over 20 members come from a diverse mix of companies and organizations in renewable energy, communications, accounting, mental health, theatre, dance and culture.

Underpinning the financial sustainability of the operations, a unique event and conference venue provides a highly adaptable and technically sophisticated 200-person studio theatre and top-floor meeting centre that provides corporations, community groups and artists with an inspiring experience to meet and collaborate.
