Ready to take flight

YYC's expansion could help city's real estate market soar

Foreign investment in the city's real estate market is poised to take flight.

And it's in no small part thanks to the ambitious expansion of the Calgary International Airport. From the recent opening of its new runway—the longest commercial airstrip in Canada—to its $1.4-billion new international terminal opening this fall, Calgary's bigger, better international airport dramatically increases the number of travellers from overseas.

While it's undoubtedly a shot in the arm to the city's struggling economy, it's not a leap in logic to assume more foreign business and pleasure travellers could provide a boost to its real estate sector, says Eric Horvath, vice president of investment sales at Colliers International.
