The location

Situated along the Bow River and spanning 49 acres between Fort Calgary and the downtown core, the East Village district is ideal for anyone interested in urban living. Since 2007, the development and transformation of East Village has been part of an effort to revitalize the inner city with vibrant mixed-use spaces and a compelling urban village design. Residents here can regularly enjoy lively community events, public art programs, and a range of dining, drinking and shopping options.

This top-floor condo unit offers great north and south views — perfect for taking in the city lights or the changing scenery of the seasons. With over 850 square feet of living space and ceilings that are more than 16 feet high, this unit is a lovely balance of light, airiness and comfort. 

The focal point of the condo is the staircase, which features an industrial-style steel railing and leads to a spacious loft/bedroom area. The kitchen features granite countertops, plenty of storage and an open-concept layout that looks straight out to the Stampede grounds and Saddledome. The unit is also just 10 steps away from a year-round, pet-friendly rooftop patio, where you and your pup can enjoy the outdoors together.
