Welcome to Northwest of Normal

February 15, 2017

From the wild beauty of the rolling foothills, to established neighbourhoods where families have grown and communities have stood the test of time—the Northwest is made from something special.

It brings together a rich history and combines it with a new energy that can’t be found anywhere else.  An oasis of urban peacefulness that’s in tune with the bustling, inner-city pace of working life, nestled near the creative minds and life of the city’s university.

A new neighbour is coming into the fold and it promises to inspire, welcome and join in the legacy of Calgary’s oldest, proudest neighbourhoods.

Welcome to University District and to Northwest of Normal.

We’ve bridged the Northwest soul to the heart of Calgary’s downtown, crafting a way to live without limits of distance, accessibility or space. Unfiltered nature, a wealth of amenities and proximity to work, play and education—University District offers an experience that encompasses life from limitless perspectives. We’re bringing you closer, and we’re giving you more room to breathe in, breathe out, and take it all in.

We’re raising the bar on the every day, the ordinary and what we expect from community living. We’re making living Northwest, living happier and living healthier, the new normal.
