The vision for The Orange Hub is to be an intercultural, interagency community hub for the arts, recreation, wellness and learning.


The MacEwan West Campus facility served as the Centre of Arts and Communication for MacEwan University. Located at 10045-156 Street, the facility is co-located to the neighbourhoods of Britannia Youngstown, Canora, Glenwood, and West Jasper Place.

Project Timeline


  • On June 28, 2017 the Naming Committee recommended the new facility name The Orange Hub
  • A zoning application was approved on August 28, 2017 to revise the zoning from Urban Services Zone (US) to Urban Institutional Zone (UI)–it allows for operational flexibility and efficiency related to future tenant changes
  • August 29, 2017 Council approved the MacEwan West Detailed Business Plan (4.38MB) as well as concept approval from Council to pursue naming sponsorship for The Orange Hub
  • The City assumed ownership of The Orange Hub facility on September 29, 2017
  • Tenants moved into the  building late 2017
  • Minor priority capital rehabilitation improvements are being initiated October 2017– fall 2018


  • A city building inspection was completed and all conditions were removed in January 2014
  • In early 2014, the Province approved the City’s purchase of the MacEwan West campus


In 2012, City Council requested City administration explore options to purchase and repurpose the unique 250,00 sq ft facility. 

Given the results of the City’s public consultation sessions, the City developed a business case (12MB) for the purchase of MacEwan West. It was based on a strong community-generated vision and guiding principles for the facility that align with strategic City goals and policies.

The business case outlined how the facility could be repurposed and re-envisioned as a unique arts, intercultural, and not-for-profit community hub. How office and creative space could be provided for various groups in a way that encourages tenants to collaborate

Council approved the purchase of the MacEwan West facility on November 19, 2012.
