Plaza Condos Calgary
Plaza Condos is a new pre-construction condo development by Truman located at 8137 Broadcast Ave SW, Calgary. This new pre-construction project is part of a large, innovative and comprehensive and master planned district named West District located in a neighbourhood called West Springs which is in the far west end of Southwest Calgary. The community of West District is a Truman project that aims to offer choice for every demographic who wants to live in a peaceful, quiet but increasingly vibrant corner of the City of Calgary. Within West District there will be a wider variety of housing options including condos, townhouses, single family homes and private rental stock. Not only does West District offer plentiful options to homebuyers, but investors should also look to West District as an excellent opportunity to buy into a high quality new pre-construction condo project at a wide range of price points.
Calgary is a fast-growing city and West District is a fresh development, one of the final large and integrated communities that will form a part of Calgary’s urban fabric. Whoever is buying into West District will be taking advantage of the reality that younger buyers have an “urbanist” view that incorporates a preference for mixed uses, walkability and a less car centered lifestyle. To this end, West District will incorporate foot paths, bike paths and other walkable features all with a mind to creating a desired environment for a younger buyer. West District will also be mixed use and incorporate not only its wide range of residential housing types but commercial, community and institutional uses. Employment in the immediate area is the goal as it means that over time some local residents will be able to avoid a commute altogether.
Residents of West District will have access to a one-of-a-kind central park connected to the development by a series of trails. Within West District there will be a wide variety of shopping options on a retail main street. Plaza Condos itself will consist of two tasteful low rise towers with a mix of unit layouts including, one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom options to satisfy every type of buyer or targeted tenant, from a young urban professional to a growing family. The area is already served by transit but this will only increase over time as a large Transit Centre is planned to serve the growing local community. Perhaps West District’s most novel feature is the shared “Central Park” that lies at its center and unites the entire community. At over eight acres, Central Park will be a hub for outdoor recreational uses as well as playing host to community events for the whole family. Multiple athletic facilities fit for use in every season and outdoor event space mean the promise of Central Park is real. Beyond West District itself, in the immediate area can be found houses of worship serving different faiths that reflect Calgary’s growing diversity. Do not overlook Plaza Condos, this is a new pre-construction condo development in Calgary that has plenty to offer: an integrated community, every type of housing option you can imagine and the reputation of a quality home builder like Truman
Location & Neighbourhood
Southwest Calgary is the most prosperous and stress free quarter of the City of Calgary. Living in Southwest Calgary mean not having to cross a bridge across the Bow River to get into downtown Calgary. Calgary is split into north and south by the Bow River and into east and west by Deerfoot Trail, also known as Highway 2. Highway 2 is packed with commuter traffic every weekday but residents of West District can remain comfortably oblivious of that fact. For those who want to ditch the car altogether, the nearby Light Rapid Transit line and the Bus Rapid Transit network are options for commuting into downtown Calgary.
From West Springs it is a short trip to the 69 Street West Light Rapid Transit Station from which a daily commuter can embark on a brisk transit ride into downtown. The City of Calgary as a whole is an outdoorsy city with a wide open feel and this area of Calgary is no exception. West Springs is just minutes south of where Clagary hosted many of the events of the 1988 Winter Olympics. Naturally, plenty of athletic facilities have sprung up in this area including Winsport Arena, Calgary Gymnastics Center and other facilities. Beyond indoor facilities like Winsport Arena where a local culture of recreational hockey flourishes, Calgary is known for its plentiful opportunities to play outdoor hockey on what are called ODRs (outdoor rinks).
Foothills Medical Centre hospital is only a short drive away and since many of Calgary’s medical facilities are located in downtown Calgary they are easily accessible from West District. Southwest Calgary is home to excellent public schools and just across the Bow River in Northwest Calgary can be found the University of Calgary, a highly regarded institution with an enrollment of thirty thousands students. This makes West District a possible home for students of “UofC” and those working at this major local institution who do not want to live immediately on campus. Plaza Condos is a new pre-construction condo development in Calgary that needs to be looked at from multiple angles to gauge its full appeal.
The City of Calgary is Alberta’s business capital, this is the nerve centre of the Canadian oil and gas industry. While Calgary and Alberta are correctly known for the prosperity of the local resource economy, Calgary is increasingly known for its exploding tech sector. The Province of Alberta’s 2022 “Alberta is Calling” campaign may seem like a flach in the pan but it represents a deeper truth about the affordability crisis in Ontario and the desire of many young Canadians to have a slice of the “Canadian Dream” by owning property in a fairly low rise setting while still having all the benefits of big city living. Welcome to Calgary, Alberta and Plaza Condos, a new pre-construction condo development that could make your dreams come true.
