Eau Claire Calgary Condo Community Review and Listings

RiverWalk outfront of Princeton Luxury downtown Calgary condosEau Claire is a downtown condo community in Calgary located between the Bow River, 2nd Street SW, 3rd avenue SW and 8th Street SW. Eau Claire was established in 1885 without having its official name of Eau Claire just yet, a name that was later adopted from the Eau Claire Lumber Company that was established in 1886.

Eau Claire was once a quiet riverside residential community without much development. In recent decades the neighbouring business district of downtown Calgary has influenced the area, penetrating all aspects of Eau Claire, promoting new urban developments such as riverside condo complexes.

The area has wonderful character created by both natural and urban environments that come together magnificently for an enjoyable atmosphere. Amenities are available in Eau Claire Market as well as surrounding business districts north of the river and further south of 3rd Avenue SW.
