The GrandView Condo was completed in 2002. Located on the banks of the Elbow River, the location is filled with an abundance of greenery and wildlife. The GrandView houses 16 delightful floors of luxurious living quarters numbering fifty-six. Most of these well constructed, high-end units have great views, often in many directions, and all have balconies.
The GrandView Condo is located in the Community of Mission in the Calgary City Centre District. The address is 228 26th Ave SW, Calgary, AB, East of the Riverstone Condo. It is directly across from the Elbow River, just off of the 4th Street bridge, which connects the communities of Mission & Roxboro.
The GrandView Condo is one of Calgary’s better kept secrets and the location is beautiful and quiet. It is adjacent to the city’s bike path. You probably drove by the GrandView a dozen times and barely took notice of it, as one will, with the city growing so quickly. The GrandView Condo is not however to be overlooked, as a contender for one of the finer, well established condominiums in the city. The GrandView Condo was designed by Gibbs Gage Architects and built by Streetside Developments both out of Calgary and comprises mostly 1 and two bedroom units from $500,000 to over $1,000,000. The GrandView Condo is has one of the few copper roofs to grace our city.
You will know that the Grandview is no ordinary condominium immediately upon approaching the striking building since it is one of the few condos in the city that has automatic entry doors. It is also one of the few buildings that has around the clock concierge and security service. The concierge service is very good, and they tend to stay around for quite some time, so they get to know the unit holders quite well.
The lobby in the GrandView is kept impeccably clean at all times. The building itself has incredibly tight security and unfamiliar faces are carefully monitored via the reasonably conspicuous security cameras.
As might be expected in finer establishments, there is great attention paid to detail. The GrandView Condo is no exception, and one can’t help but notice the near perfect finishing in just about every corner. They haven’t cut any corners here, and this is reflected in every detail.
There are quite a few amenities and activities for residents to participate in. The Lang House Residents Club provides a perfect venue to getting to know your neighbours, most of who are of retirement age or younger. Monday is games night and starts precisely at 7 PM. Yoga classes are conducted weekday mornings between 9 and 10. Of course this is always subject to change. The Lang House was originally owned by Mr. Lang, one of Calgary’s prominent real estate owners of the 20th century.
When the GrandView Condo was built, the Lang House was relocated to the East, and restored to a beautiful condition. It now makes a perfect combination of meeting room, billiards or games room, and is very charming.
In addition to The Lang House in the GrandView Condo, there are also many other amenities available at no or very low cost to the residents.
A fully equipped kitchen is just one of the many fine features of the GrandView Condo, and the adjoining social room which can accommodate quite a few people at any given time.
