Where it is

2212, 222 Riverfront Ave. S.W.

 

The location

This condo overlooks Calgary’s historic Chinatown area and is located near Sien Lok Park. Within the park, there’s a five-tier stone sculpture titled “In Search of Gold Mountain.” It was sculpted by artist Chu Honsun, who created it to chronicle the history of Chinese people in Canada.

 

What to love

There’s plenty to love about this high-rise home with an open floor plan and sweeping city views. The large entryway leads into an equally expansive kitchen with rich wood cabinets, a warm counter, gold tones and comfy island seating. The connected living room and dining area add to the welcoming feel of the space, which is all flooded with natural light from the spacious windows. The functional space is just as ideal for meals with family as it is for entertaining friends. Outside, wraparound balconies expand the space and provide breathtaking city views.

The upstairs loft is a great flexible space for an office, recreation space or entertainment area. Another private balcony includes an outdoor hot tub that can be enjoyed year-round.

The primary bedroom is a bright retreat with a wall of large windows and a luxurious ensuite. Step into a spa-like oasis with dual sinks, an oversized soaker tub, a separate shower and access to an expansive balcony.

 

What to consider

The condo building offers full amenities, including concierge service, a fitness centre, whirlpools, steam rooms, recreation rooms, a private movie theatre and car wash facilities. It’s also close to Prince’s Island Park, Eau Claire, Chinatown and the downtown core.
