Located in the heart of northwest Calgary, you’ll find everything you need nearby and easy access to wherever you want to go giving you a lifestyle of ease and elegance. From a fitness studio, central courtyard, and plenty of green space and parks within the community to a variety of retail including luxury grooming and styling experiences, a specialty wine shop, and a health-focused pet store, you truly have it all within reach.
Owning at Capella is a particular kind of statement – one that hints at a certain level of confidence and very clearly says you value community, convenience, and active living. Impeccably designed by boutique architecture firm McKinley Burkart, these homes showcase premium features and beautiful finishes that will enhance your life – at any stage. Capella offers 92 contemporary, stylish one- and two-bedroom condos ranging from 540 to over 1,000 square feet. With gourmet kitchens, spa-inspired ensuites, and private balconies with incredible views, this is where it all comes together.
The luxury of Capella is all in the details. The building’s exterior makes use of natural and soft elements mixed with bold materials for a contemporary feel. Parking is not only secure and underground, but heated as well – perfect for those Calgary winters. The lifestyle of residents has been thoughtfully considered and elevated with conveniences including:
Central Courtyard – With a desire to create a vibrant and inviting scene, the courtyard is accessible to the entire community, offering active and passive spaces to socialize in or find a quiet oasis in solitude. Oversized patios are nestled in-between the gardens and face out onto the street to engage pedestrians. A variety of plants with different blooming times will create an exciting garden for the community to view and socialize within.
Two-Storey Lobby – The Capella Condos’ showstopping, soaring glass lobby is reminiscent of a classic European library, where traditional ideas meet new sophistication. This space was intended to be a library-style gathering space encouraging residents to work and socialize.
Fitness Studio – The inspiration for Capella’s fitness studio was drawn from a leather boxing bag and gloves, pulling in cognac leather accents and a refreshing palette with canvas and saddle colours. Available to residents 24-hours a day, this space is bright, airy, and clean with a seamless connection to the outdoors through the balcony and park views.
Open Spaces & Parks – Explore life at a gentler pace. University District will have limitless ways to get connected to nature with ponds, dog parks, pathways, look out parks, and the green spine – a naturalized landmark that links residents to main street and common parks.
This well-planned, refined collection of condos not only connects residents with convenient amenities within the community, but puts you steps away from Main Street’s retail district. What’s better than moving into a community committed to placing easy access to your lifestyle amenities and so much more? With everything from a grocery store to a pharmacy, coffee shop to wine merchant, and a variety of other services planned, living in University District gives a whole new meaning to “shopping local.” Best of all, you get back the world’s most important resource – time.
