LUXURY CONDOMINIUM SALES SET THREE-YEAR CALGARY REAL ESTATE RECORD
Sotheby’s International Realty Canada Sells $8.4 Million and $5.1 Million Luxury Waterfront Condos at THE RIVER, as Activity Rises in Calgary’s High-End Real Estate Market
Sotheby’s International Realty Canada has announced two noteworthy sales, setting new records for the highest sold price for condominiums sold in Calgary on MLS over the past three years. The 5,000 square foot and 3,000 square foot condominiums sold for $8,389,500 and $5,145,000 respectively. Both are part of THE RIVER, an esteemed luxury estate development by 26th Avenue River Investments Inc., a dynamic affiliate of Ledcor Properties Inc.
These record sales take place at a time when Calgary’s high-end real estate market is showing signs of increased sales activity, a trend that began in late spring of 2016. A 9% year-over-year increase in the sales volume of residential real estate over $1 million for the first half of 2016 was recently reported by Sotheby’s International Realty Canada’s 2016 Mid-Year Top-Tier Real Estate Report.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, these luxurious suites feature iconic views of the Rocky Mountains, Elbow River and downtown skyline. The expansive floor plans boast a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a private media room, study area, and a large dining space. Two spacious outdoor living areas overlook one of Calgary’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Additional building amenities include a 24-hour concierge, guest suite, executive boardroom, fitness centre, entertainment suite, chef’s catering kitchen, and a pet and car wash bay.
“I’ve seen signs of renewed activity and interest in the market over the past few months,” said Anne Clarke, listing agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “More clients are engaging in the market, due to increased confidence in the future of Calgary and Alberta.”
“These are notable sales for the Calgary real estate market,” said Mary-Ann Mears, Managing Broker of Sotheby’s International Realty Canada in Calgary. “It indicates increased interest and activity in high-end real estate, and demonstrates that discerning buyers recognize quality opportunities and have confidence investing in Calgary.”
