There are few other places in Calgary that are as influential as the downtown core. It is the lifeline of our city, the place at the beginning and the end of many Calgarians work days, countless business transactions and for more people than ever before, where many call home.

Many people are choosing to live in downtown Calgary not only because they might be closer to work, but because of its vibrancy and what it has to offer for residents. It truly is where all the action is in Calgary; from Prince’s Island Park and the Devonian Gardens to the Glenbow Museum and Stephen Avenue Walk, it’s hard to think of what isn’t found in and around the downtown Calgary core.

While many urbanites have been flocking towards the opportunity to live downtown, some might not have found the exact type of residence they were looking for. Fortunately, there are a few residential developers who have snatched up properties in the downtown Calgary core with a location that is as perfect as it gets for a new condo development, and are planning to build a wide range of new condo homes that will surely appeal to even the fussiest of tastes.


Developer LaCaille has had success before in downtown Calgary condo developments, and they will surely do it again this time around at Vogue new condos. Located on 6th Avenue in between 8th and 9th Street SW, Vogue has an amazing downtown location only minutes from the river, business core and beltline, and has an ample selection of one and two bedroom floor plans for a wide range of buyers, ranging from 552 to 1408 square feet.

Included in suites are some of the latest features including stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops and large soaker tubs to name a few. But the inside isn’t the only part of Vogue that will delight. Its outside exterior is eclectically pleasing, combining some of the best of New York and Chicago style condominium design into one unique and masterful display of architecture. Now that’s cool!

3 Eau Claire

3 Eau Claire could very well be the most anticipated new Calgary condo development with its stunning architecture and highly desirable location in the centre of the Eau Claire Calgary Condo Community. It is one of the only mixed-use residential buildings that will be connected to the well known and well used +15 indoor walkway network in downtown Calgary, which is the longest of its kind in North America!

Inherent to its fantastic location is immediate access to some of the best Calgary has to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants and entertainment, while major attractions and events in the downtown business core, the Bow River, Princes Island Park and more are only a short walk away.

And with approximately 500 units varying between one, two and three bedroom condo units to choose from, 3 Eau Claire will surely be just as popular among buyers as popcorn is at the movies. Small, medium, large, extra large, whatever size you want, get it at 3 Eau Claire!

More Opportunities to Live in Downtown

Many people are looking to live, work and play in downtown Calgary. As one of the most downtown focused cities in North America, available condo units are few and it is definitely easier said than done when it comes to finding a place downtown, but with the help of new Calgary condo developments like Vogue and 3 Eau Claire, living in downtown might become a reality for some sooner than they think.

I fully expect that in the future we will see many more new condo projects downtown. Where there’s a will, and demand for that matter, there’s always a way! Until next time Calgary!
