The Riverwest i in the Downtown Core has some tremendous views, especially on the North Side. The eye-catching golden pyramids atop both towers can be seen for miles around making the Riverwest a memorable landmark. It is well maintained and has a pool.
The Riverwest Condominium Complex is comprised of the Barclay on the West, at 1088 6th Ave SW, Calgary, AB – and the McLeod on the East, at 1078 6th Ave SW, Calgary, AB. The two towers are adjoined in the underground parkade. The Riverwest is another brain-child of BOSA Developments who also developed the Liberté, Axxis, and Marquis Condominiums here in Calgary, in the Inner City.
The Riverwest condo is beautifully constructed, and has large private balconies from which there are clear views in three directions. Many of the units have two well sized balconies on opposite sides of the unit resulting in full panoramic views. The Bow river flows nearby on the North and so those units get a rare birds-eye view of the Bow River, nearby the Louise Bridge.
There is an appealing Water Feature on the South-facing entrance to the Riverwest complex, along with several 30-minute visitor parking stalls in an easily accessible valet style roundabout, which almost always seem to be available, so I suppose that is strictly enforced. There are meticulously cared for flower gardens greeting your visitors as they pull in.
In total, there are 234 Living Units in the Riverwest Condominium Complex in Calgary. 105 units in the Barclay with 23 Floors, and 124 in the McLeod with its 27 floors. There are 2 Penthouses in each tower, each which have impressive balconies on all three directions.
Riverwest Condominium Parking
The parking stalls in the Riverwest Condominium are all leased, so they are considered exclusive-use common-property. There are four levels of parking, and the entrance is on the North side via the lane. There are approximately 16 underground visitor parking stalls accessible by key-pad dialling to your unit. The exclusive-use parking is separated from the visitor parking by an electronically controlled overhead gate.
Riverwest Condominium Security – All access Doors in the Riverwest Condominium are electronically controlled via a small Access Key Fob.

The old exercise room at the Riverwest was converted it to a very comfortable owners lounge complete with a brand new kitchen and vending machines. They’ve added a couple of brand new exercise rooms and they are full to the brim with state of the art exercise equipment. They’ve added a large yoga studio which doubles as a ping-pong room. What great changes! While the old exercise room was seldom used, the new one gets a lot of use, even in mid-day! Good work Riverwest!
Riverwest Condominium Restrictions – None known
In Summary, the Riverwest is a comfortable, well kept and established Downtown Condominium which is well run and has a high ratio of owner occupancy. It is a desirable location and has a friendly, mostly professional demographic who take pride in ownership.
If you are contemplating a purchase or sale in the Riverwest Condominium, either the Barclay at Riverwest or the McLeod at Riverwest, I would be delighted to be able to assist you in this regard. I do enjoy visiting the building with every showing or sale.
