Winner: Upper Mount Royal

The winding streets of Upper Mount Royal are a smorgasbord of architectural forms — everything from heritage arts and crafts to crisp modern abodes (give or take a castle). Set on sprawling lots with stately towering trees, a stroll or leisurely bike ride through Upper Mount Royal doubles as a gallery walk showcasing residential architecture in Calgary at its most impressive.


Honourable Mentions:

Elbow Park, Erlton, Rosedale, Scarboro
