Mount Royal

The Birth of Luxury

There’s a fascinating history of the Mount Royal neighbourhood that coincides with Calgary’s boom days after the turn of the twentieth century.

Like similar neighbourhoods developed in Montreal and Vancouver by the Canadian Pacific Railway, Upper Mount Royal was intended to be one of Canada’s finest and most exclusive neighbourhoods.

Barren hills rising up from the river valley were quickly populated by the city’s first generation of nouveau riche.

Skip ahead a century later and we find an inner-city oasis that has flourished into something sensational.

This is a sublime selection of Calgary real estate, the epitome of luxury, style and elegance.
