Truman has been with our University District family from the beginning, and they understand and embody our vision for uncomplicated and enjoyable daily living. Esquire is another example of University District residential options built where residents can stay connected, love their home, and live in a community that is rich in amenities.” – James Robertson, West Campus Development Trust President and CEO.


Let’s explore Esquire’s many unique features and highly sought-after amenities that are sure to impress Calgarians.



Features Aplenty


Family-owned Truman has more than 30 years of experience with award-winning designs for new homes in Calgary, which is why we’re excited to unveil Esquire! New residents will have a breadth of choices. With the opportunity to choose from 18 floorplans and personalize their home with options for six colour palettes and different styles of flooring, while showcasing Truman’s personal TruSpace kitchen that includes custom-made cabinetry and lighting, and polar-white quartz countertops. You can create a space that is a reflection of your personality and taste, with the addition of premium finishes to a functional living space.


What makes Esquire more appealing? Each condo will feature expansive, oversized windows to maximize the amount of natural light residents can enjoy, and the view of the surrounding neighbourhoods and scenery. This is part of Truman’s commitment for the building to be built Green Gold Efficient, placing sustainability and efficiency top-of-mind in its design and matching University District’s commitment to sustainability.


We love that these homes match our vision with a perfect balance of sustainably-made, on-trend design, and maximize every aspect of living space to live an incomparable urban lifestyle.


“The distinguished residences at Esquire feature light-filled spaces and beautiful backdrops, perfect for entertaining guests and enjoying everyday life,” says Oliver Trutina, Vice-President of Truman. “Residents of Esquire will not only be neighbours with the great facilities that surround University District, but they’ll also have exclusive access to the on-site amenities that Esquire has to offer such as a gym, pet spa and workshop, to name a few.”


When our community launched, Truman proudly opened Noble, following with the announcement of its seniors independent living project, Maple. Take a look here to see what has been developed so far. 


At University District, people come first! Our distinctly different housing options and amenities help support your ideal home life. Working alongside exceptional builders like Truman, we’re developing a tight-knit community that grows with you.

Amenities are Key


Living at University District is meant to be easy, and we believe an important part of daily life is access to amenities right at your fingertips. Esquire by Truman brings a new level of comfort with on-site features that include the following:


  • pet spa and washing station
  • 24-hour gym
  • spin studio
  • movement studio
  • bike repair room
  • workshop for DIY hobbyists
  • great lawn and courtyards – with BBQ equipment


With exclusive access to these building features and the convenience of amenities and services for the community, with the first phase of our retailers to open in 2020, living at U/D can change your quality of life. It might mean finding more time to relax and unwind in the comforts of the movement studio, a walk with your furry friend along the 12km connected pathways and north pond and urban dog park, or meeting with new neighbours while you’re at OEB Breakfast Co. across the way — we hope that living here gives you a peace of mind, flexibility in your day-to-day life, and more time for pure enjoyment.


As University District continues to grow, our community continues to develop with one common theme in mind –  our people-first philosophy. Learn more about our focus on building a place for you to call home, and why we’ve been recognized as Community of the Year!
