As a resident of East Village we feel the energy and renewal of this neighbourhood. The people, the infrastructure, the retailers that are popping up are bringing new vibrancy and attitude to downtown’s best neighbourhood.
The EV Junction is an innovative and social pop-up retail space that is unique to Calgary. Replacing the old, dilapidated gas station across from the St. Louis Hotel, the bright colours and design add colour to this place.
When we started filming we knew we needed to feature the colours, the movement, the energy, and how good it feels when you’re there. From the high-octane kickboxing to the sweet Apple Lady selling fresh fruit and vegetables it’s a place where you can hang out and feel like you’re a part of the neighbourhood.
Thankfully, our day was absolutely gorgeous, the sun was bright, the people came to be a part of it, and the music was awesome.
