Imperial Lofts – Beltline

The location is edgy and high energy, just what you might expect, in the shadows of the Keynote condominiums, across the street from the Sunterra Market and a block East of the Mustard Seed.  The Imperial Lofts are one of the original historically significant warehouses which were later converted to residential condominiums.


Imperial Lofts for Sale - Exterior

If you have ever dreamed about owning your own dormitory style Warehouse Loft, these  are indeed a rare find. The Imperial Lofts are located at 220 11th Ave SE in historical  Victoria Park, in the Beltline Community of the City Centre District in Calgary, AB.

As might be expected, a trip to the Imperial Lofts is as much as an adventure as can be. There are all sorts of twists and turns around every corner, so you will need to allow for extra time if you want to really explore your potential purchase.   The condos in the Imperial Lofts can vary from the drab to the magnificent. I have seen some rather poor development in some units, which is dated and substandard, and in other units the upgrades have been incredible.  Whichever there is infinite possibilities for those with imagination, taste and a flair for wide open spaces.

Imperial Lofts for Sale - Entry

The entrance to the Imperial Lofts is rich woodwork and marble, sort of what one might expect from a building so rich in history.  One can imagine the comings and goings of all manners of business people and fortunes made and lost in days gone by.

Imperial Lofts for Sale

The lobby of the Imperial Lofts is of course expansive.  I would guess the ceilings to be about 14’ high, and the original brickwork is kept intact.   As building is very old, it may not have much appeal to the average buyer who is looking for something pristine.  It is a special building for buyers with special taste and in this respect it can be quite appealing and unique.

Imperial Lofts for Sale - Lobby

There is a door off to the right of the elevator which takes you to the main floor units, and also to an underground parkade and private garages titled to some of the units.

Imperial Lofts for Sale - Corridors

The single elevator will escort you to your floor, being four in total, not including the basement. If you are thinking high speed, think again, but the elevator is in good condition.  There are 22 living units in the Imperial Lofts with the second, third and fourth floors each having six, and on the main floor there are only four units, the most Northerly being the largest in the building.

Imperial Lofts for Sale - Exercise Room

There is a well equipped exercise room in the amenities area from the 2nd floor. It is about one of the brightest and well equipped exercise rooms I have seen.

Imperial Lofts for Sale - Games Room

The Imperial Lofts has a very cool, comfortably arranged games room available for residents.  The many common areas are spacious and seem almost never-ending!  There is also a ping-pong table and dart board, along with a fully equipped kitchen, with which to pacify your guests, and even an raised loft which seems to serve no real apparent purpose but offers possibilities.  The social rooms seem well enough away from the residences so as to not disturb the other occupants.

    You will be the ENVY of your friends in this New York style loft. Unit 301 is a highly desirable layout in Imperial Lofts and will wow you with its grand tall ceiling, new large window and overall openness. This home has a touch of modern updates, yet maintains its historic elegant flare with exposed 100 year old brick and unfinished industrial piped ceiling. Live the experience! After a busy work day, walk across the street and grab a couple steaks from Sunterra and a growler of craft beer from 5 Vines, BBQ on the rooftop patio and stroll over to the 'Dome to catch an event. Hit up Village Ice Cream for a waffle cone on your way home. On the weekend, go next door to Grumans for brunch (smoked-meat breakfast poutine). Don't worry, you can hop on the Calgary cycle track to burn it all off or take your dog for a stroll. And since you're in the Arts Hub, why not walk over to the Vertigo Theater and catch a matinee mystery theater production. That’s the life! Interested...? Call for a private viewing! More details
