Sunnyside Calgary - More to Offer than You ThinkSo if I’ve heard this question once – I have heard it a million times. Ok, maybe not a million. Here it is: what’s the difference between the Calgary community of Kensington and Sunnyside. Actually, as it happens, not much. Kensington is a business district that crosses the communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside. So when you hear someone say that they LOVE Kensington – they are really referring to four blocks that include shops, restaurants, pubs, and yes – even a cat café. But THAT is for another day. These four blocks are technically in Sunnyside (and Hillhurst). SO now that we have a basic understanding of what-is-what, let's dive into what makes Sunnyside one of the best communities to live in. And why you should live here. Are you rea...

East Village – Why you should live thereIf I could live ANYWHERE in Calgary, this would be it. East Village.  It took a couple tries to get this community built but you know what they say about good wine, patience and perseverance... It is considered a mixed-use neighbourhood and when people say it is in the Rivers District – it really is. Historically, EV has been the forgotten cousin – overlooked, left out, and almost entirely ignored. But no longer.EV is geographically fairly small, but that is what makes it so vibrant. An urban oasis that is nestled just steps from the east end of downtown, south of the Bow River and west of Inglewood. It. Has. Everything. People from all over the city flock to this neighbourhood to explore it. But YOU can live here. This is why you should.Take your...

You can live a simpler life and spend your money on things that matter to you. Here is a list of MY top things to do in West Hillhurst.Go for Breakfast!Head to a neighbourhood icon - Dairy Lane Café – a modern, intimate café offering farm-to-table Canadian grub.

Why Now is a Great Time to Buy a Hi-Rise Condo in Downtown CalgaryAccording to Calgary Economic Development's  Calgary Head Offices - Fact Sheet 2021, Calgary contains the highest concentration of head offices in Canada with 71% of them being oil and gas companies.Boom and Bust Leads to Head Office ReductionThe Calgary economy has been tightly tied to the oil and gas industry. When oil prices are high, the city and province reap the rewards. When prices are low, it is just the opposite. It has been a constant cycle of boom and bust.The last seven years however have seen an unprecedented exodus of head offices from the downtown core. This started with the sudden reduction in WTI crude prices from $93.17(USD) in 2014 to $48.66(USD) in 2015. This caused many oil and gas companies to re-eva...
