Where it is

1903, 188 15 Ave. S.W.


The location

This condo is in the Chocolate Condo Rooftop, a 19-storey building featuring 165 units with sweeping views of Calgary. Located in Victoria Park within the Beltline, the unit is also part of an area that helped shape Calgary into what it is today. In 1899, the Calgary and District Agricultural Society purchased 38 hectares of land for an exhibition ground. These exhibitions were encouraged as a way to bring people together in celebration. The area was named after Queen Victoria, the reigning monarch at the time who also supported the exhibitions, and so Victoria Park was born.

The Chocolate building was built in 2006 by Battistella Developments and brought its innovative architecture, dramatic interior spaces and stylish finishings to the area.


What to love

This sub-penthouse unit boasts luxury features like walnut waterfall countertops, stainless steel appliances and brass fixtures. The ceiling-height windows with panoramic views bring ample lighting and a sense of spaciousness. Warm accents like the kitchen’s walnut countertops bring a sense of warmth that’s balanced by the concrete flooring.

The suite boasts a loft-like layout with an open floor ideal for a relaxing living room and entertainment space. The kitchen is also fully equipped with a water filtration system, sleek matte black Brizo plumbing fixture and sophisticated brass accents. The spacious four-piece bathroom is a luxurious retreat with granite countertops, under-mount lighting, brass fixtures, an elevated sink and a bath/shower combination.


What to consider

In addition to great views, the building provides a garden mezzanine and rooftop terrace to enjoy. It’s also pet-friendly and within walking distance of downtown, river pathways and ample dining hot spots.
