Whether you are new to YYC or a born and bred Calgarian, you know the pulse of the city can be found in the downtown core and its surrounding areas. It’s here you’ll find the perfect blend of contemporary architecture and vibrant local culture.
One of the great things about living in Calgary is that you can be in the heart of it all, living in the location you love, in a sleek apartment — all within your budget. That’s why renting in the city is a no brainer.
Calgary’s newest rental building, SODO Residences, offers exactly this with 305 urban, one and two-bedroom apartments south of Downtown Calgary — starting at $1,425 per month. SODO’s grand opening weekend is taking place on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9, but before you visit, here’s a look at the elements that make it completely worth your time.
The central location
Full of character, the Beltline consistently makes it on to lists for “Calgary’s top neighbourhoods” and when you live there, it’s easy to see why. Located at the gateway to the Beltline at 10th Avenue and 5th Street SW, SODO connects you with the best parts of the neighbourhood and offers all of the amenities you need within walking distance.
There’s no shortage of boutiques, artisan markets, and stores in the area, not forgetting the luxury CORE Shopping Centre. And when you can walk to Calgary’s Retail and Entertainment District, 17th Avenue, you’ve got plenty of reasons to go out and socialize with a plethora of restaurants and bars at your fingertips. This includes everywhere from REGRUB to National on 10th, Commonwealth Bar and Stage, Knoxville’s Tavern, and Bridgette Bar (craft-inspired cocktail, anyone?).
Nature in an urban setting
We all need a little vitamin N when we’re living in an urban setting, and immersing yourself in nature is easy at SODO. You can take a stroll through the nearby Prince’s Island Park or enjoy the amenity greenspace on the outdoor terrace of your new building at SODO.
By the time summer arrives (soon, hopefully) you can soak up the sun on the lawns, host a BBQ for your friends, or chill out in the hammock seating just steps from your door. But what if you have a dog? No problem, SODO is a dog-friendly building, and there’s a designated off-leash green space and dog run for your furry friend. There’s even a dog grooming room with an electric dog wash station so your pooch can stay pampered 24/7.
Design that enhances relaxation
Feeling comfortable in your home is key, and you’ll notice this as soon as you step into a SODO apartment. Designed by IBI Group, the thoughtful interiors and architecture at SODO will make you wonder how you lived anywhere else. Floor-to-ceiling windows and open-concept kitchens complement light and dark colour schemes effortlessly.
Covering 38,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenity space, SODO has its own Fitness Centre with state-of-the-art equipment and spa-inspired changerooms with steam showers, a games room, a lounge, a chef-inspired demonstration kitchen, bike storage room, electric car charging stalls, and even an above ground, heated parkade.
