Across the Bow River from downtown Calgary and the exciting East Village project lies the de Waal Block. Built in 1910 and fully restored in 2001, the refurbished building has recaptured much of the original Edwardian charm in addition to all the contemporary updates of plumbing, electrical and heating. The heritage structure was honored by receiving the prestigious City of Calgary Heritage Authority “Lion Award” in 2010 for outstanding restoration.
A renaissance is underway in the buildings’ neighborhood of Bridgeland/Riverside. As proof, across the street the Meredith Block has been completed with open main-floor retail that includes the organic supermarket - Blush Lane - and 6 floors of office space. Down the street a high rise condo with main floor retail is in the planning stages with more to come. Join the "Riverside Village" renaissance!
