Working in Calgary’s downtown core has its advantages and its drawbacks. Many fast-paced and exciting jobs have their origins in our city’s centre and if you like the vitality and energy that is the heart of Calgary, then you either work or live in the downtown area. Our city is growing at an incredible rate, however it is growing outwards which makes it all the more difficult to get to and from work each day.

How would you like to live within walking distance of where you work? What if you could live in Calgary’s inner city with all of modern life’s conveniences within your grasp? Imagine stepping outside your door and walking to your favourite restaurant or enjoying a night on the town only minutes away from the comfort of your home. If you can envision this luxury then you must see the Greystones just around the corner from uptown 17th Avenue SW.

Built for today’s busy lifestyles, these high quality condominium homes also offer contemporary designs in an urban setting. Moving into a condo downtown doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice space or elegance. With many floor plans to choose from and plenty superior quality standard features, the Greystones have a lot to offer. Ranging from a cozy 800 sq-ft to a spacious 1700 sq-ft, there’s a suite to fit every lifestyle. Imported granite countertops, maple cabinetry and stainless steel appliances are incorporated in every kitchen, as well as hardwood floors and ceramic tile. There’s also decorative mosaic tile-work above the counters that can be a really stunning focal point in the kitchen. Usually these stylish features are upgrades in a new home, however, Millennium Realty has set a higher standard for their residents.

In addition to all these distinctive features are some other striking design elements such as 9 foot textured knockdown ceilings throughout, giving you a sense of room and space, and the attractive gas fireplace that is standard in every unit. Also included is the functional computer nook cheekily called the Cyber Space. This area is a nice touch as well as a necessity in today’s world of computers and technology. The next area to leave a lasting impression is the roomy master bedroom and gorgeous ensuite bathroom. The ensuite’s tiled floor leads up to the glassed-in shower and continues up and around the luxurious soaker tub. This a great place to leave the excitement of the day behind and let any tension or stress just float away after a hard day’s work.

If you’re interested in seeing for yourself what the Greystones have to offer, visit the show-suit at 1828 – 14th Street SW and be prepared to want to move in right away. Even though well over half the units have been sold, there’s still a great variety to choose from and most of them have awesome panoramic city views. The available suits range in price from $194,900. to $389,900. and one of the unique benefits to living in the Greystones is the availability of parking. Unlike many other developments downtown, if you need two or three car parking it’s accessible at the Greystones.

However, with over 200 locally owned and operated shops and boutiques and numerous restaurants, your cars may begin to gather dust with so many amenities within walking distance. Strolling down tree-lined walkways and exploring the museums and art galleries may become your newest favourite past time. The sophisticated lifestyle that you deserve awaits you just around the corner from Uptown 17th Avenue SW.
