Renfrew homes for sale in CalgaryRenfrew Calgary Inner City Community and Home Search

Renfrew is an inner city community in Calgary’s northeast that is slowly, but surely growing in popularity. Established in 1950, its homes are coming of age which is giving way to many brand new and desirable new infill developments.

One of Renfrew’s selling points is its fantastic location less than three kilometres away from downtown. Originally, Renfrew was historically the site of the Calgary airport until the City moved it further out. After the airport was relocated residential construction began.
