Glendale Real Estate Information
Situated in the southwest quadrant of Calgary lies the community of Glendale. Approximately 7km from downtown, it's the ideal community for anyone who wants to be close to the area without all the noise and activity that's associated with it.
Glendale first got its start in 1955 when it was established as an official community. It wasn't annexed until the following year, which is much different from most other neighbourhoods in the area. Soon after it got its start, curvilinear streets began to take shape and homes popped up all throughout the late 1950s and 60s.
As of 2014, the population in this community was 2,739 who were living in over 1,068 dwellings. The majority of these are single-family homes with only 8% being condominiums and apartments. Many of these have been updated to achieve more modern appearances, although it’s still possible to find affordable properties that maintain the look of the era in which they were built. With home prices ranging from the mid $400,000's to the millions, there’s something for every buyer.
