How the City started and Continues To Grow Community by Community
The City of Calgary covers a lot of ground like most large cities in Canada. As the city expanded from the downtown core, it added new communities in an ever-widening circle. The downtown core was once home to many single-family homes. The homes are long gone, replaced by the towering high-rise office and residential condo towers.
Calgary was once divided North and South only by the world-famous Bow River flowing from the Rocky Mountains through the city center. Then as it continued its growth, it became divided east and west by Center St. Calgary was then known for its four quadrants of North West, North East, South West and South East.
With every growth spurt, the City of Calgary was adding new communities or sub-divisions, as some call them. Each community became a snapshot in time for the style of homes by active home builders and city bylaws of that time.
Starting at the center of Calgary and driving out to the City limits in any direction, you will see the landscape of home styles change from the old to brand new.
Now you know how Calgary has expanded in every direction from the center with different styles of homes in different communities.
