The Eau Claire Neighbourhood Hub

Thanks for your support, Calgary!

The cSPACE Eau Claire Neighbourhood Hub operated out of the historic Eau Claire & Bow River Lumber Co. building from October 2022 until the end of March 2024.

We are grateful to all the artists and artist collectives who created magic here, and made cSPACE Eau Claire a place where artists, cultural and community groups could gather and create.

Eau Claire & Bow River Lumber Co. building

The Eau Claire & Bow River Lumber Co. was established in Calgary in 1886. The present building (on the City’s inventory of evaluated historic assets) was built c.1903-04 and was the second office erected by the lumber company. Since 1978, it has been known to Calgarians as the beloved 1886 Cafe. The wood frame building is being raised to meet flood plain requirements and was moved while Eau Claire Plaza undergoes redevelopment. The building is now temporarily situated at the northwest corner of 3rd street and 2 Ave SW, and is fitted with accessible ramps, attractive outside deck areas, and inviting lighting to support the hub’s use.
