Homes for sale in Altadore

Diane Kelly, Calgary real Estate AgentAltadore Neighborhood Information

View Listings

Altadore is situated in the southwest quadrant of the city and enjoys city and mountain views. The community was annexed to the City in 1907, but much of the area remained undeveloped until the early 1950s. Houses from this period were generally one storey, stucco bungalows located on 50 foot lots. Portions of the community were rezoned for three storey apartments in the 1950s. Apartment and four-plex redevelopment has occurred at a very slow pace since that time. The plans for South Calgary emphasize the policies of conservation and compatible infill development for the majority of the community. The revitalization of the commercial areas on 33rd and 34th Avenues is being accomplished through the work of the Business Revitalization Zone, aptly name Marda Loop (the name of the early streetcar line in this area).

Although most of the subdivision plans for the area were registered between 1907 and 1914, most of the housing development did not occur until the 1950's. Houses from this period were generally one-storey, stucco bungalows located on 15 metre (50 foot) lots. Altadore is close to major open spaces and recreational opportunities are provided in River Park and the Glenmore Athletic Field. The focus of the future plans for Altadore is to maintain stability in the community by maintaining the stock of family-type accommodations in the area.
