Marda Loop & South Calgary
The community of South Calgary contains the Marda Loop business district in its core, and to locals, is known by this more recognizable name. While South Calgary may have a generic name, the community is perhaps one of the most exciting in Calgary real estate today. What was, not long ago, a dated and slightly run-down area is now one of the best luxury communities in the city. Its proximity to the downtown core, easy access to major traffic routes, and booming local business sector is fuelling major residential redevelopment. Now, the area is revitalized, refreshed, and most of the area’s properties are new designer houses and condos catering directly to a luxury market.
