RNDSQR co-founder Alkarim Devani ... brings an inverted condo to Calgary’s Bankview | The Globe and MailA proposed 78-unit condo building is shaking up Calgary’s speculative development model in a bid to bring families, diversity and a sense of community to a small corner of the inner-city neighbourhood of Bankview.

Village, designed by local architects Modern Office of Design + Architecture (MoDA) and being developed by RNDSQR, will be a $20-million development which, if approved, will feature four distinct unit types: studio, loft, condo and townhouse, all under one “pixelated” roof-scape.

“We’re still in the conceptual stages,” says RNDSQR co-founder Alkarim Devani, “but we’re hoping to have permit applications in by the end of the year and we’re working towards a 24-month project timeline. We’re currently addressing some of the community concerns with a traffic study and looking at how we can support the public infrastructure around the development.”

This will be RNDSQR’s second development in Bankview and their largest multifamily project to date.
