Also note an extremely rare separate two car garage, expansive city views and communal rooftop garden. With an abundance of amenities on its doorstep this is truly a space for the urban enthusiast.
The Beltline which stretches East to West, spans the entire southern border of the downtown area. Established over a century ago, it has experienced a major surge in development and revitalization over the past decade.
Standing strong are the historical sandstone buildings that gave this area it’s roots. Juxtaposed alongside are ultra modern and innovative highrise residences that have given the Beltline a second life. These stunning towers have forever changed the downtown landscape, as the buildings they stand next to changed the downtown landscape over 100 years ago.
This neighbourhood is teeming with urban culture. All of life’s necessities are mere moments away and are comprised primarily of independent, homegrown retailers. Quaint cafes and trendy restaurants keep residents nourished while specialized fitness centres and clothing boutiques keep them in top form.
In addition to being within steps of the downtown core, Victoria Park is just a few minute walk to the Bow river pathway where you can escape urban living and breathe in the fresh, clean air along the lush tree-lined river bank. Within the neighbourhood are several parks and green spaces to let Fido run or to enjoy an urban picnic on a warm summer day.
The face of the Beltline is still emerging and now is a great time to become a part of history in the making.
