Mission, Calgary Condos, Houses and Townhouses For Sale
Mission, City Centre Calgary Real Estate Listings and Community Info
Mission is all about the night life – you have the clubs and pubs along 17th Avenue SW at your back door, and when the Stampede rolls through town in July, you’re right in the thick of it! Mission is a city centre (formerly inner city) Calgary community that features condos, single family houses, and townhouses for sale, with the majority of properties being condo apartments. In this inner city community, you’ll also find luxury homes and estates, luxury condos and penthouses, and a bunch of infill homes. Mission is bounded by 17th Avenue SW to the north, the Elbow River to the east and south, and 4th Street SW to the west.
Welcome to the Night Life
Living this close to the downtown core gives you access to plenty of amenities. You’re right next to two major shopping areas – 17th Avenue SW and 4th Street SW. On 17th you’ll find plenty of clubs and bars, while 4th is more associated with restaurants and shops.
If you’re looking for some time in nature, you can walk along the Elbow River. Fitness aficionados will love being right next to the Talisman Centre, which features a full gym, walking and running track, pools, and one of the highest diving boards in the city. Come winter, you’re also close enough to the Saddledome to walk to a Flames game!
Schools serving the community include Our Lady of Lourdes School, Earl Grey School, and Western Canada High School.
The best part about living in Mission and working downtown is that you can walk to your office every day if you so choose. If you plan on driving, Macleod Trail and 17th Avenue SW are the two major routes out of Mission – though you’ll be dealing with fairly heavy traffic on both. Erlton / Stampede Station and Victoria Park / Stampede Station are both a short walk to the east. And bus lines? Check out the #3 Sandstone / Elbow Drive and the #771 Western Canada / Chinook Station.
If you’re looking at living in Mission, you’re probably thinking about two things – the great night life and the wonderful proximity to downtown. On your weekends you can be dipping in and out of restaurants along 4th Street before heading over to 17th Avenue to dance the night away. Then, the next morning, work off the food and drinks you had by running a few laps at the Talisman Centre, or going for a long run along the river. During the week, walk to your downtown office and skip the misery that is rush hour traffic. And after hours? Grab some friends and go check out a Flames game.
