Renting downtown is the preferred location for most CRS clients. Downtown is where you will likely be working, and it’s also the center of arts, entertainment and almost everything interesting Calgary has to offer.
Of course, there is a large variety of neighbourhoods in downtown Calgary. Your CRS agent will help you choose the best location for your lifestyle, but here is a quick guide to rental locations in downtown Calgary.
The central business district of Calgary is where all the big office towers are and very likely where your company and your clients will be located. The Calgary Tower is right downtown, as well as, Stephen Avenue Mall on 8th Avenue with many trendy restaurants. You’ll find ice skating at Olympic Plaza, across from City Hall. Downtown is only minutes away from the Bow River, Prince’s Island, and other key areas in the Belt Line of Calgary.
Both of Calgary’s train lines run right through downtown on 7th Ave. The trains can take you to all over the city relatively quickly.
One of the best areas to live is the North West corner of downtown, near the Bow River. There are some great jogging or cycling paths at your doorstep and the trendy Kensington area is just across the bridge. West facing apartments will give you stunning views of the mountains.
Also, along the Bow River, the East Village is becoming one of the most sought after rental and condominium communities in Calgary. The area is still undergoing major development, but it is a great location close to the downtown core.
Just east of the East Village, you’ll find Inglewood that is quickly becoming a popular area of Calgary.
Across the river from downtown, Kensington is a great community to live or just explore in your free time. With a supermarket, many cafes and restaurants and trendy shops, Kensington is great place to call home.
It’s quite easy to walk downtown from Kensington and the train will take you straight into the core of the city on colder days.
Just south of downtown is Calgary’s most populated area for condos, suites and apartment rentals. Starting from the East, you’ll find Stampede Park where all the big concerts, hockey games and the world famous Calgary Stampede are held.
17th Avenue SW is very popular for restaurants, pubs and trendy shops. This is one of the most popular entertainment districts in the city. Extending all the way up to about 14th Street SW, the entire area is full of interesting restaurants and shops. If you want to be close to the action, the Calgary Belt Line is the place to live.
Northern views from the Belt Line will show the skyscrapers of downtown Calgary. Western views will show the Rocky Mountains. South facing views include the trees and hills of Calgary’s Mount Royal district.
On the other side of the trendy 17th Avenue on 4th Street, you’ll find Mission extending right down to the Elbow river. Some of the best cafes and restaurants in the city are found in Mission, along with many great apartment rentals.
Going up 17th Avenue SW, past 14th Street, you’ll find Bankview. Bankview is still close to the action, but it’s high altitude location offers some stunning views of the city and even the mountains if you are lucky.
Just behind Bankview, is the Marda Loop area. Another trendy area of shops, restaurants and cafes. Many of the apartments and condos here are on more residential streets but still close to the trendy shops. There is bus transportation downtown, but it’s likely you’ll be driving more in a community like this.
Access to Banff and the Rocky Mountains
All downtown communities are only about a 15 minute drive to the west side of Calgary. That’ll give you easy access to Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and all the skiing, hiking, wildlife and natural beauty that Canada has to offer.
