Beltline Real Estate Listings and Information
The Beltline community is Calgary’s most central and given its proximity to the downtown core, is quite popular amongst young homeowners and renters. There are four communities that are considered to be part of the Beltline: West Connaught, Connaught Centre, Victoria Crossing Centre, and East Victoria Crossing. A popular area for renting, residents living in the Beltline number approximately 20,000 - roughly half of which are between the ages of 20 and 34 (City of Calgary, 2012). The majority of homes available in the Beltline area are apartment style, but a small number of single detached and row homes are available for purchase (Ibid).
Residents of the Beltline are minutes from several LRT stations. Whether trying to get from one end of downtown to the other or out of the downtown area entirely – LRT stations are easily located and blocks apart!
