AboutBuffalo Run

Inspired by the power and splendour of the buffalo and its roaming spirit – Buffalo Run honours this extraordinary connection with the land, sky and all living things.

Buffalo Run

The first debuting Village of Taza

Buffalo Run is a 390-acre space that provides a one-of-a-kind blend of retail, office, and tourism offerings. Positioned at the intersection of the Stoney Trail/Tsuut’ina Trail Ring Road and Calgary’s Southwest communities of Cedarbrae and Woodbine, this expansive community serves as a major hub for high-quality shopping, dining, and recreation.

Cultural Significance of the Xani-tii

Inspired by the power and splendour of the buffalo and its roaming spirit—The Shops at Buffalo Run honours this extraordinary connection with the land, the sky and all living things.

The Tsuut’ina story “Be the Buffalo” describes how this creature, when faced with a storm, will battle through it head on. They are the only animal known to do this; most animals will either attempt to outrun the storm or avoid it all together.

Featuring The Shops At Buffalo Run

The Shops at Buffalo Run, a premier retail destination, offers over 265,000 square feet of prime retail space adjacent to the newly opened Costco on Buffalo Run Blvd. With construction completed in early 2024, the development is nearly 80% leased and will house 60 diverse tenants, providing an exceptional shopping and dining experience.

Together with Tsuut’ina

Something wondrous is coming…

Building on over 50 years of economic development and planning by Tsuut’ina, a genuine partnership was formed with Taza Development Corp. to plan, finance and develop Taza along the path of Tsuut’ina Trail, a component of the Southwest Calgary Ring Road highway expansion. This partnership thrives on a generosity of spirit at every exchange, setting the tone for something wondrous to come.

Taza is one of the largest First Nation developments in North America. Its legacy is founded on a set of standards that define an innovative framework to champion all Indigenous communities to further transform and thrive.

Taza reflects the authentic and aspirational vision of the Tsuut’ina Nation to be North America’s Indigenous leader of carbon neutral/near net zero energy buildings by 2030.

The land, water, air, animals and plant-life must be protected, restored, and enhanced throughout all the built environments on this territory. This includes a long-term plan to reach overall carbon neutrality across all sectors including all forms of energy, transition, and energy grid development/storage and an investigation of carbon capture targets for the Nation.
