Where it is
1436 23 St. S.W.
This home is located in Scarboro, a small, village-like community in Calgary designed as an “Olmsted community.” The community was initially planned during Calgary’s boom era in 1906 to 1912 by John Charles Olmsted, a respected leader in the landscaping and early planning professional world. Under Olmsted’s direction, Scarboro’s streetscapes were designed in harmony with its topographic features and streets were placed following the lay of the land. The many parklets throughout the community are another signature feature of Olmsted’s design.
