Blast from the past: old and new Calgary collide in eclectic Inglewood

Voted Canada's best community in the 2014 Great Places in Canada contest, Inglewood stands out for a variety of reasons, beginning with its historic flavour.

Tracey Hodgson and her husband wanted a home in a vibrant inner-city community that accommodated their active lifestyle, so a condo in historic Inglewood was a perfect fit.

Centre of the action

Tracey Hodgson secured her ideal lock-and-leave lifestyle with a new Inglewood condo

At 55, Tracey Hodgson is on the cusp of retirement. She and her husband are winding down their business commitments (she owns a beauty supply company) and plan to cycle between periods of work and play. They recently purchased a strata-type lake property in Kelowna and a condo in Las Vegas, and have listed their home in Chestermere. Their vision is to float between the two homes. But with three grown children and a grandchild in Calgary, they wanted a touchstone in the city – a place where they could park themselves at the centre of the action while visiting family. They found what they were looking for in the heart of Inglewood at AVLI on Atlantic Avenue, a collection of 64 condominiums, garden terrace designs and live/work townhomes designed by Jeremy Sturgess of Sturgess Architecture.

And that new view of aging has also changed their approach to downsizing, says Buss, who has marketed and sold large condo projects in Calgary for almost three decades.
