Formerly its own village, Crescent Heights was originally annexed to the city in 1911 and is one of Calgary’s oldest residential communities. Immediately north from the downtown centre, Crescent Heights benefits from having direct access north by the Trans-Canada Highway, 4th Street to its west, Edmonton Trail to its’ east, and Memorial Drive and the Bow River to its south. The neighborhood currently has an area redevelopment plan in place to attract new development opportunities to the region and to ensure that this part of the city is well maintained as we are led further into the twenty-first century. The vast majority of the residential properties here are single family detached homes with over 6,000 residents living among the 3,600 dwellings. The diversity of the properties available can’t go unaddressed as Crescent Heights contains some of Calgary’s most expensive homes alongside some of the more modest properties available.
Upon graduation from Stanley Jones elementary, Colonel Macleod junior high, and Rosedale elementary and junior high, public school students are fortunate to be able to attend the Crescent Heights senior high school found in their local neighborhood. Catholic school students attend St. Joseph elementary and junior high, and St. Mary’s senior high school.
Crescent Heights is very pedestrian-friendly with many busy pedestrian paths leading their way to the neighborhood. Thousands alone walk from the Centre Street Bridge into downtown each day and the view of downtown at the top of the Memorial Drive 167-step staircase is a magnet for many pedestrian enthusiasts. The Edmonton Trail is nearby as well with a fine selection of restaurants and boutiques for residents to peruse in their time off. Those with a vehicle often enjoy taking Centre Street into the downtown core which only minutes away from their homes. McHugh Bluff Park adds some nice green space along Crescent Road which intersects the community as well. No matter the type, there’s something in Crescent Heights for everyone to enjoy.
Calgary Transit populates the Edmonton Trail, Centre Street, 12th Avenue, and the highway with over a dozen stops for residents to use to reach other parts of Calgary without hassle.
Living in Crescent Heights is like visiting a place where the fun never stops which is the reason why it has attracted a lot of young professionals, new families, and seniors. Whether it’s downtown Calgary, the Bow River, the green space that surrounds the neighborhood, and/or the commercial opportunities offered, take advantage of the close proximity to all of these attractions. Take it in and have fun. Do not miss the opportunity to give you the dream home you’ve always wanted for yourself. Crescent Heights is it.
