Sunnyside Calgary Inner City Community and Home Search

Sunnyside is an inner city community located on the north bank of the Bow River, directly adjacent to Calgary’s downtown core. Calgary infill projects are sprouting up quickly in this area because of its admirable location and the redevelopment plan that the city has initiated for the community.

Sunnyside Calgary was established in the 1880’s when original residents usually were either CPR employees or Eau Claire Sawmill laborers. The past few decades has attracted many downtown professionals looking for a comfortable inner city lifestyle with quick access to the downtown core.

Easy access to main routes like Memorial, 10th Street NW, 14th Street NW, and 9th Street SW bridge to name a few as well as having the beautiful river parkway immediately outside your front door has caught the attention of home buyers and new infill developers alike.

Location

 

Sunnyside Amenities and Services

Found within Sunnyside Calgary is the popular business district of Kensington, reachable in less than 10 minutes of walking from the furthest point of the community.

If you don’t find what you are looking for in Kensington, then 16th Avenue, North Hill Mall, the Calgary beltline area and downtown should supplement the rest of  your amenity needs. Sunnyside also has an LRT station, Sunnyside Station with stops for multiple different bus routes along its side.

Take full advantage of the river parkway, running to the Talisman Centre along the Bow River if you choose or simply for taking the dog for a walk. Adjacency to the Bow River paths and parkway is a major luxury the majority of communities don’t have
