Smaller condos gaining popularity in Calgary
Don't call it a trend. Yet.
Whether you label them micro, shoebox or nano condos, housing units under 500 square feet in size have tested here and proven popular with younger, inner-city buyers — and with savvy investors renting to that same demographic.
But while other cities such as Toronto and Vancouver have already offered condos as compact as 200 square feet, Calgary's smaller living units tend to sit at more than twice that size – and they are included in developments with larger unit offerings.
