East Calgary Features
East Calgary can best be described as diverse. The region has a residential real estate at all price ranges and types, including large single-family homes and space-efficient condos. While East Calgary has a mixture of residential, commercial and industrial zones, the residential communities feel separated and distant from the business areas.
Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail provide quick access north-south, and Glenmore Trail is an excellent east-west route. With the Calgary Transit LRT running along Memorial Drive, commuters can quickly travel to downtown, the University of Calgary and beyond.
Communities along 17 Avenue SE (also called International Avenue) are nearby a diverse range of shops, restaurants and services. These communities include Forest Lawn, Forest Heights, Albert Park and Southview.
