West Hillhurst Calgary Community and Home Search

West Hillhurst infill homes for saleWest Hillhurst Calgary Community and Home Search

West Hillhurst is premium inner city living destination in northwest Calgary sought after by infill buyers and new home builders alike. West Hillhurst is located in close proximity to Calgary’s downtown core, borders the Bow River and is close to tons of necessary amenities and services.

West Hillhurst lacked any considerable development until 1945 when substantial construction projects to house returning soldiers from the World War commenced. Today, the new inner city infill home is becoming the new face of the community replacing many of the older post war homes found in the area.

If you dread the drive through rush-hour traffic you could use any one of several bridges across the Bow River to access downtown Calgary with ease, or choose to do so by walking a short distance or biking.

Location

 

West Hillhurst Amenities and Service

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology a.k.a. SAIT Polytechnic and the Alberta College of Art and Design a.k.a. ACAD are located just north and east from the community, while North Hill Mall and Home Depot are found a few minutes north along 16th Avenue NW.
