Edenwold Heights, Edgemont
Arriva Calgary Condos

Perched atop of Edgemont and Nose Hill Park is the 252 suite condo complex known as Edgecliff Estates. Built in the early 1990s of wood-frame construction, the complex was always designed for young buyers who wanted to leave their parents’ home and still be close to the University of Calgary and SAIT.

The 9 building, 3 storey complex is completely a walk-up (no elevator), so unless you’re on the main floor, you’ll be carrying your groceries and asking your friends to help you move. The size of the condos vary from 1 bedroom units at 700 square feet to 2 bedrooms nearing 1000 square feet.  The South facing units of Buildings 1 and 2 boast some spectacular views of downtown Calgary and the Mountains. They rarely come up for

The Axxis is a 25 storey building in the Downtown West End part of the core.  Built in 2000, the Axxis offered high quality views bundled with ordinary finishes and affordable prices.

One of the finest high rises in Calgary has also one of the best locations. Nestled up against Mount Royal Village on 15th Avenue, the Montana was finished in 2009 and is the younger, more refined sibling of the Emerald Stone. The standard issue for all of the 190 units were granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and full solid wood doors and trim.  You can view Montana listings for sale here.

The entrance of the Montana is perhaps the finest anywhere. There is a full-time concierge to greet you as you make your way up the ramp or stairs through the walnut entrenched foyer. The windows in the building are all Visionwall - used in Airports and commercial buildings to keep noise out and the inside temperature in. The

The Arriva highrise was completed at the tail end of Calgary's biggest real estate boom and it offered lifestyles that most baby-boomers and young professionals had to notice. Tucked away in East Victoria Park, the towering 36 stories stood out like something from Dubai or Hong Kong. 

It was also one of the first to offer high-end commercial space at the foot of the building - which meant that you could wine and dine without leaving the building. Nowadays some of it's best views of downtown and it's prestige of the highest residential tower in Alberta have been taken away by the Guardian
