South Calgary Community and Home Search

South Calgary homes for saleSouth Calgary Inner City Community and Home Search

South Calgary is a family oriented community in southwest Calgary found just a few minutes south of the downtown core. Established in 1914, the area has experienced much redevelopment over the years to include several new infills, townhomes and condominium developments.

South Calgary has become a favourite for home buyers who are looking for a new inner city infill in a southwest location. The area currently has a redevelopment plan with a purpose of improving the inner city community even more.

Location

 

South Calgary Amenities and Services

South Calgary has multiple amenities and services available to residents located just south of 33rd Avenue SW in the contemporary Marda Loop area. With over 100 businesses, everything that a home owner needs, whether it is entertainment or just simply shopping, can be found in Marda Loop. Some of my most frequently visited places are Avenue Deli, Nellies, Phil and Sebastians, Globefish Sushi, Garrison Pub, Fergus and Bix and Belmont.

South Calgary is also home to a public outdoor swimming pool as well as a community centre. The area also is home to seven recreational parks available for leisure. Also located nearby is 17th Avenue SW which has one of the city’s largest concentrations of restaurants, shops and night life.

South Calgary Schools

  • Residents of South Calgary have two different options when considering what elementary school to send their children to.
  • Whether it is Altadore Elementary or Richmond Elementary you choose, both schools are located less than 5 minutes away.
  • Altadore Elementary is located just to the south and Richmond Elementary is located just west of Crowchild Trail.
  • Junior High students are designated to attend Mount Royal Junior High school, which is located just a few blocks away from the community’s furthest North Eastern border.
  • Senior High school students are designated to attend Western Canada which is maximum a twenty minute walk, or fewer than five minutes driving to and from.

South Calgary Demographics

As a Calgary home buyer it is good to know some of the actual statistics for the communities you are looking into. Age, income, education and the ratio of home owners and renters are all important statistics (City of Calgary, Civic Census 2009)

  • Ages 24 and below – 20.4%
  • Ages 25 to 54 – 66.5%
  • Ages 55 and up – 13.1%
  • Average household income – $50,394 (Statistics Canada, 2006 Census)
  • Percentage of population with a High School Diploma or higher – 88.8%
  • Ratio of residents who own their property – 45.7%
  • Ratio of residents who rent their property – 54.0%

Public Transportation

South Calgary is serviced by 3 main bus routes. These are route 7, route 13 and route 107. Route 7 runs a circle route along 17th Avenue SW, traveling into downtown then makes its way south to as far as 54th Avenue SW.

Route 13 services the city centre, Mount Royal, South Calgary, Mount Royal University, reaching as far as Glenbrook before making a return trip back towards downtown. Route 107 has a similar route as route 7, but services 6th Avenue SW, 5th Avenue SW and 9th Avenue SW instead of 7th Avenue SW and 8th Avenue SW when compared to route 7. It also skips out 17th Avenue SW.

No matter where you need to go, Calgary Transit can get you there.  Of course when you live so close to the core you can always walk to 17th Avenue or ride your bike into downtown.

South Calgary Community Boundaries Are:

  • Northern Border – 26th Avenue SW between Crowchild Trail and 14th Street SW
  • Eastern Border – 14th Street SW between 26th Avenue SW and 33rd Avenue SW
  • Southern Border – 33rd Avenue SW between 14th Street SW and Crowchild Trail
  • Western Border – Crowchild Trail between 33rd Avenue SW and 26th Avenue SW
