Cliff Bungalow is a charming, historic and laid-back inner city community in Calgary centred along 5th Street SW. It is bordered to the north by the trendy 17th Avenue to the north, the well-liked 4th Street to the east and the Elbow River to the south – making it a popular area for savvy luxury real estate investors. This appeal also stems from the many low and mid-rise condo buildings that pepper the neighbourhood in contrast to the one-story houses classified by the community name.

Cliff Bungalow Calgary Community Information
Calgary’s Cliff Bungalow was originally established as “Section 9” along with Mount Royal in the 1870’s by the Canadian Pacific Railway to house its staff. The area housing the homes at the bottom of Mount Royal hill was annexed by the City of Calgary in 1906, and re-zoned for denser residential buildings in 1935; but the area wasn’t renamed Cliff Bungalow until a century after its founding, in the 1970’s.
