Calgary's iconic Eau Claire Market will close at the end of May to make way for a major new development planned in the area.

The work will include the construction of a Green Line LRT station – part of a $5.5-billion upgrade.

Demolition of the 30-year-old mall is expected to begin in July and be finished by the fall.

The Joey Eau Claire restaurant will continue to operate during the work.

A farewell party for the mall is being planned for May 11.
