The COP location involved turfing the Calgary Gymnastics Centre and repurposing the building into the first sound stage.
When the province put the skids on their 5 million investment, the Calgary Gymnastics Centre renewed their lease to the building. Lease terms are 10 years with at least 9 years to go.
From a personal perspective, I am ecstatic the film studio is finding another location. My 3.5 year old has been going to Calgary Gymnastics Centre for the past 2 years, its probably her most favourite place in the whole world. Even if CGC got relocated, she would be heart broken every time we past by Stoney and Highway 1,
