Living the high life: Crescent Heights residents enjoy beautiful views and diverse amenities in the inner city

Perhaps one of Calgary's most beautiful neighbourhoods, Crescent Heights is a photographer's dream. Situated on a staggered bluff overlooking downtown to the south and the Rocky Mountains to the west, the community is peppered with two-century-old elm trees that create whimsical canopies along the streetscapes.

"We've lived in the neighbourhood for more than five years and the view just doesn't get old," said Victor Gallardo. "I'm always thinking how lucky I am to have my everyday running route include a spectacular view of downtown and the mountains."

Showhomes in D’Arcy are currently under construction, and two showhome parades will be opened in May. Duplexes will start in the low $300,000s and laned homes will start in the $370,000s.
