The northeast is probably the most affordable quadrant of the city. There are usually a lot of choices for someone on a strict budget or for first time buyers that want to get started with a condo or townhouse. However, there are some high end areas with Coral Springs having it’s own lake community and there are plenty of estate homes in Monterey Park, Martindale, and Saddleridge to name a few.
By far, the largest employer in the northeast is the Calgary International Airport which is easily accessible through the new tunnel that goes right under the new runway. Thousands of people work at the airport in hundreds of different jobs such as baggage handlers, security, restaurants, flight attendants, and many more. It also really helps to be close by if you need to catch a flight for a vacation or business since you are only a few minutes away from the airport. There are also many industrial parks in the northeast that keep a lot of people employed.
Transportation in and out of the northeast is really good with the C-train extending all the way to Saddleridge and there are all the usual bus connections if you can’t drive to a train station. The ring road which is also known a Stoney Trail is very close on the east side of the city so you can get to the southeast and northwest very quickly, although they only built that section with two lanes each way, so it is quickly becoming congested at rush hour.
