Why Buy a Home or Condo in Currie Barracks?
Currie Barracks is a new and exclusive community in Calgary’s southwest inner city. Following behind Garrison Woods and Garrison Green, the community was the last and final phase of redevelopment by Canada Lands Company (CLC) at the Canadian Forces Base (CFB). This military base was decommissioned in 1998 with a move to consolidate forces in Edmonton.
This opened up a grand opportunity for new community developments just minutes away from downtown and close to the Glenmore Reservoir / Elbow River. It's no surprise that location is one of the three reasons why you should consider buying a home in Currie Barracks.
