When looking at NW Calgary homes, there is a wide array of neighborhoods and home styles that can be seen. Like the rest of the city, the northwest quadrant has more established neighborhoods near the inner city, and homes get newer as you travel to the outer edge of the city. However, even the mature neighborhoods have substantial amounts of newer infill homes and condominium redevelopments in and near the inner city.
The homes in NW Calgary are within 62 distinct communities, each of which has many unique attributes, such as mountain or river views, as well as close proximity to Nose Hill Park.
Many of the homes and condos along the rivers and creeks also benefit from the public green spaces and parks that coexist alongside the waterfront. This helps ensure all of Calgary’s residents can enjoy the waterfront and a natural space, while still providing scenic views for waterfront property owners.
Most NW Calgary waterfront properties are located along the Bow River, which creates most of the southern border of the quadrant. In recent years, concern over springtime flooding has prompted builders to incorporate more advanced flood protection into the design of homes and other buildings located along the riverbanks.
Owing a home in NW Calgary can provide many opportunities, including easy access to green spaces like Bowmont Park Natural Area and Nose Hill Park. Because of the hilly terrain, many homes also have mountain views, in addition to convenient travel times to downtown, the airport, and other areas of the city.
