3 Reasons to Buy a Condo in Bridgeland Calgary Bridgeland Crossings New Condos Calgary

When we think of walkable areas with new condos in the inner city, Bridgeland is most definitely one of the first that come to mind.

Truth is that Bridgeland is up there with Victoria Park, Connaught, East Village and Kensington as the best places for living an urban lifestyle to the fullest near the beating heart of our city.

Some condo buyers may ask what is so different about Bridgeland compared to those other highly sought after communities mentioned above.

Well, here are three unique reasons why you should consider purchasing a condo in Bridgeland the next time around. Learn more about this neighbourhood at our Bridgeland Calgary Community Review and Home Search.

1st Avenue NE Sushi Bar Zipang Bridgeland Calgary Sushi Plate

1st Avenue NE to Bridgeland is what 17th Avenue SW is to the beltline.

From east to west, this street is packed with everything that you could hope for just a few steps (or blocks) from all the latest multi-family projects in the area including Bridgeland Crossings, Einstein 2, Steps by Sturgess, NEXT, 43 Park and LiFTT.

Find yourself craving some delicious food? Simply jaunt down 1st Avenue NE and discover Sushi Bar Zipang, Blue Star Diner, The Main Dish, La Dolce Vita or maybe Il Sogno – some of Calgary’s best restaurants.

During spring and summer this main strip really comes to life with its curbside patios and visitors’ from all over Calgary enjoying everything that it and the rest of Bridgeland have to offer.

Bow River Best Calgary summer activities - downtown Calgary pathways

Imagine walking from 1st Avenue NE south, down the hill towards the Memorial Trail pedestrian pass, then up and over to the Bow River pathways in just a few short minutes.

For some, the Bow River may be a go-to resource for exercise while others may just enjoy taking a leisurely stroll with their pets.

Regardless of the activity, the Bow River and its network of parks and pathways extend for countless kilometres and lead towards other vibrant areas of our city including East Village, Inglewood, Eau Claire, downtown and the Calgary Zoo.

Areas that are all reachable on foot within minutes… what’s not to like about that!?

C-Train Station Calgary LRT and Public Transit

We all have better things to do than to wait in traffic.

Fact is that Calgary is rapidly growing which means more vehicles on our roads and longer waits getting to and from our destinations.

Why not skip rush hour by simply walking down to the Bridgeland LRT Station easily accessible by using the same pedestrian pass we mentioned above?

You will be amazed at how much time you really do save when using the Calgary C-Train system that is set to get a whole lot bigger in the years to come.
