The luxury community of Millrise, located east of James McKevitt Blvd SW and west of Macleod Trail, was named after the woolen mills run by the Shaw Family in the area during the 1880s. It is a family-friendly community established during the time that Calgary was recovering from economic downturn.
Millrise real estate is composed of homes with maintenance-free materials, such as vinyl windows and vinyl siding, common in the late 20th century. The lots in this luxury community are cut in 24 to 40 feet wide. Millrise has a lot of strip malls and is conveniently near Fish Creek, Alberta’s biggest urban park.
