Calgary Downtown Condo Buildings
In downtown Calgary, you will find a mix of two styles of condominium buildings, high-rise and low-rise. One of the first decisions a buyer has to make is the style they prefer.
According to the Emporis Standards:
High-rise building: A multi-story structure between 35-100 meters tall, or a building of unknown height from 12-39 floors.
Low-rise building: An enclosed structure below 35 meters which is divided into regular floor levels.
Standards do vary throughout the world. In Calgary, a High-rise building is considered to be 5+ stories and a Low-rise is 2-4 stories.
Each of these building styles has its pros and cons. A pro for a high-rise condo is that they typically provide expansive views. A con might be the time spent waiting for an elevator. For a low-rise condo, a pro could be that since they are smaller it is easier to meet and get to know your neighbours. A low-rise condo con could be that the number and size of amenities are much smaller. A buyer will need to identify for themselves what is most important to them in terms of building style.
