Land Swap Bringing New Condos by Truman to Hillhurst
The Royal Canadian Legion, North Calgary Branch No. 264, was handed the keys to a brand new 40,000 square foot building constructed by Truman Homes just last month.
The new space was part of a deal between the two groups where the Kensington Legion would provide two-thirds of its land to Truman Homes to develop a new condominium in return for a new building on the remainder of the property.
The Legion’s current brick building has been their home since 1956 and is much need of an upgrade, a reality that has now come true because of the land swap which will bring more than 200 new condo units to the inner city community of Hillhurst in northwest Calgary.

The New Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 264
If you frequent Kensington Road, you’ve probably seen the stages of construction of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 264 building on the corner of 19th Street NW – right next to Savoy Condos, a recently completed condominium development by Truman Homes.
It took a total of 14 months for the building – including two levels of underground parking – to be completed.
The new building gives the Kensington Legion the opportunity to make an income off the bottom-floor retail spaces and third and fourth floor commercial spaces.
On the second floor is where the legions member lounge is. It’s an excellent idea for all parties involved -everybody wins.
1918 Tap & Table
On the main level there’s a brand-new pub / restaurant called 1918 Tap & Table with excellent food, vegetarian and gluten-free options, plus free-parking and WIFI.
With an emphasis on using locally-sourced ingredients when possible, 1918 offers burgers, soups, salads, land and seafood entrees and more.
The restaurant even offers memberships for restaurant patrons that get you VIP pricing at 1918, something that local Hillhurst and West Hillhurst residents might be interested in.
Truman’s recently completed multi-family projects in Calgary include 1741 (SW), Orchard Sky (NE) and Savoy (NW). Moving forward with the land swap, the company expects its new Hillhurst condo development to be released onto the market in early 2018 with features including:
- 228 total units
- 30,000 square feet of bottom-floor commercial space
- A cascading design that steps down every two floors
- A spectacular rooftop amenity
- Prominent water features and landscaping
