The verdict is in, Avenue Magazine released the rankings of Calgary’s Best Neighbourhoods last week, and over the coming weeks, we are going to delve into the investment opportunity and benefits of each of the top 10 communities.

In the number two spot, is the southwest community of Beltline:

  • 21,958 population
  • 90 walk score
  • 76 transit score
  • 438.66 crime rate
  • 1 off-leash park

The inner-city Beltline community is 2.9 square kilometres, is located immediately south of Downtown Calgary. As for investment opportunity, the community is known for its high number of apartment buildings. The median assessed property value in 2017 was $306,000, down 4.9 per cent from 2016. However, this means that real estate is less expensive now than it was a year ago. With the condos in the area, statistics show us that when things turn back around in the condo sector, this will prove to be a great investment.

Some of the notable perks as ranked in the survey (overall ranking compared to all communities in Calgary):

  • Access to restaurants, coffee shops and bars: 2nd overall
  • Walkability: 5th overall
  • Transit score: 6th overall

 

The vibrant area south of the downtown core known as the Beltline is chock full of great restaurants, cool cocktail bars, packed pubs, bumpin’ nightclubs, boutiques and bookstores, coffeehouses, yoga studios, boxing studios and anything else a connected Calgarian would be tuned into. Tucked into the mix are charming urban parks and green spaces to chill out in, heritage monuments like the Memorial Park Library and Lougheed House to explore and admire, a handful of hip hotels and a variety of options for residents to do their grocery shopping and run drugstore errands. [Avenue Magazine]
