Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Two native Calgarians. We love to travel and meet new people from around the world.

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Calgary, Calgary, AB, Canada:
As a real estate professional for over 30 years, we recognized the absolute beauty of this building and priceless location that could never be replicated. We love this property.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Having traveled extensively we recognize that Calgary is not a premiere walking City unless you stay near Kensington, Eau Claire Mission or Downtown. This wonderful penthouse condo offers a strategic location that plays to the best that calgary has to offer, close to all sites and transit, incredible views and amazing community! This is by far the best way to experience Calgary without the need for a vehicle. If required you'll find numerous Car2go's available within a block!
