Westgate is an inner city community in southwest Calgary, located approximately only 5 kilometres west of the downtown core.
Established in 1956, most of Westgate has rapidly changed from old post-war bungalows to new infill developments due to the ever increasing demand for new inner city homes in Calgary.
Westgate’s location only minutes from downtown, the Bow River, C-Train and amenities makes it a prime neighbourhood for many buyers looking to live an inner city lifestyle in the very desirable southwest area.
