The VENTO CONDO was developed by Windmill Developments, and is located in the historical and walk-friendly community of Bridgeland, at 116 7A Street NE, in Calgary, AB. The Vento was constructed in 2006 and combines both commercial and residential condominium development on three levels, and fronts onto 1st Avenue NE. There are 20 residential two-story town-home condos units tucked away on the 2nd floor and three commercial units on the first floor which are leased out to complimentary businesses. In addition, each two-storey unit in the Vento has a third level with leads up to a semi-private exclusive-use, patio area.
First Avenue, in Bridgeland has a rich history and an abundance of popular shops, restaurants and services. Entry to the Vento Condo is via the parkade or from the back, both via an electronically secured low-speed elevator.
The Vento Condo boasts a Platinum Status for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. (LEED). Materials used in the construction are mostly renewable, bamboo flooring for example, and incorporate energy efficient Lifebreath Heat Recovery Systems, in-floor heating, & water conserving appliances. Fresh air is circulated through every room. For this reason, the Vento Condo has great appeal to friends of the earth, environmentalists and conservationists who wish to live centrally in a community setting.
Unfortunately, this out of season photograph of the Vento Condo doesn’t show how pretty and compelling the 2nd floor promenade is. When the trees and flowers are in full bloom, the same scene is very lush and inviting. The walkway is stone block, and the residents enjoy a strong sense of community living. The units on the North side of the Vento Condo enjoy their own exclusive use patio, as well as a balcony, and roof-top patio which is accessible from the 3rd floor.
The rooftop patios are splendid for relaxing in the summertime, or providing an out of the way play area for the little ones.
