Although East Village is considered by size to be one of the smaller residential areas in the city of Calgary, the community still has a community association which offers different programs and special events that are put on for members of this community. Being in the heart of downtown Calgary, you'll also have direct access to events including the growing Beakerhead which as the years go by gets bigger and bigger and continues to be a highlight in the city of Calgary, the Stampede grounds are just minutes away, along with Fort Calgary, the new Library, and the Music Centre as well.
With safety and access in mind, the revitalization of this neighborhood has been extensive, although it's definitely still very car friendly, residents will be able to access many restaurants and services easily within short walking distances, including transit, shops, the new public library, and much more, making this an exciting time for Calgary condominium buyers.
East Village has seen hundreds of millions of dollars pumped into the revitalization programs that have masterfully planned to turn this community into a hot destination for Calgarian's. The ultimate development plans for this neighborhood is to see a split into four unique areas, all of which will contain their own distinct personalities and attractions.
