Phoenician Condo Calgary, Dalhousie

The well known Phoenician is one of the many age restricted condominiums in Calgary, which is well suited for seniors in particular. It’s not exclusively a seniors building, but it does have many features which are desirable to anyone looking for peace and quiet with a strong sense of community, in a beautiful setting, with oodles of amenities.

Phoenician Condo Calgary

The Phoenician Condominium with non-slip rubber walkway in Calgary

The Phoenician condo is well managed, in a desirable location and holds it’s value well against many other condominium buildings in and around Calgary. Well behaved adults 18+  are very welcome as well, just so long as they don’t create a disturbance.

The Phoenician condo is located at 5201 Dalhousie Drive NW.  The first thing you’ll notice is the visitor drop off lane directly in front.  You need not park on the street while waiting for a resident. The Phoenician condo has an east wing and a west wing, and four elevators.  Once through the security door, you enter in on the main floor and are greeted by a large reception room, tastefully decorated in Victorian style furnishings.   There is a small waiting area off to the left with a telephone, over by the mailboxes.

Phoenician Condo Lobby Fireplace

Grand entry with fireplace, designer window coverings and antique Furniture

The Phoenician condo initially started out as a bare land condominium which was registered as the Phoenician I.

On December 23, 1997, the developer registered applied  for initial construction of the west wing of the building, which called for 86 living units and 103 parking stalls on the west side.   This wing is now commonly referred to as the Phoenician I.

On August 12, 1998, the Phoenician II was registered.  Again this was a subdivision of the Phoenician I and today is commonly referred to as the Phoenician II. This east wing i has 86 living units and 100 parking stalls.

Altogether, the Phoenician condo has 172 living Units and a generous 203 titled underground parking units. In total there are 10,000 unit factors, with each wing accounting for 5000 of them.

Phoenician Condo Terrace

Massive common property terrace to enjoy during the summer months.

Each of the units comes with an assigned storage locker.  The lockers are located on the parking level.  The availability of parking is exceptional, albeit a little tight. All the parking is located on level “P”, so there’s no need to manoeuvre endless ramps and confusing turns to arrive there.  You may access visitor parking outside by the parkade entrance (limited) or your guests may buzz you up at the parkade entrance to be admitted.  Here they drive straight in to the section marked “Visitor Parking” in construction yellow about 3/4 of the way down.  There are a full two rows, and I have never seen a shortage here.

The south-facing courtyards in the Phoenician condo are magnificently maintained and quite breathtaking.   Access for the yards is available from either the ground level (Level 1) or from the Sundeck above. (Level M).   Level M is on the ground level at the front of the building, and Level 1 is one down from that, but still on the ground level at the back.  Level P is below that, and the units are contained on levels 1, 2, 3 & 4.

There are fire doors separating each wing from the central area.  All doors in the Phoenician are accessed by use of a wallet sized electronic key. The unit doors have security dead-bolts, but have been installed upside down. This caused all sorts of problems during showings because real estate agents are used to turning the key in the direction of the door jamb to lock.  During the short time I had my unit listed, the door was thought to be locked twice, when actually the showing agent had actually unlocked it.

Table Saw in Workshop

There are many amenities in the building, including a workshop for the handyman.  You may have to use bring your own hand-tools.

Grand Spiral Staircase going down from the Main Level with plants and chandalier

Taking the spiral staircase down from the main floor, residents meet in the community gathering space for coffee daily.   Coffee is served from the adjoining kitchen and is well attended.

Other amenities include a grand theatre, where residents gather weekly to view recorded movies.  There is a car wash bay, work shop, and library, and as well an on-site manager takes care of the day to day things.   The managers hours are from 10 to 4 on weekdays as I recall.

There are some important rules to know. A big one is that all deliveries must come to the delivery door and not through the front door!

Some of the units in the Phoenician condo are one bedroom and others are two bedroom.  The two bedroom units come in two basic styles. One is the conventional apartment style, and the other is more non-traditional.  The latter seems to fetch a higher price, and the south facing units seem to be the most popular.  Some of the units have approved air-conditioners, which are installed on the balcony.  The 2-bedroom units half two full baths, or 1 1/2 baths while the one bedroom units might have either one full bath, or a bath and a half. Some units have no parking stalls, others with one or two titled stalls.  The stalls may be sold to anyone in the building as they are separately titled.

Exercise Room

Weight equipment, treadmill, free weights, universal gym, with mirrors on the wall

There are two guest suites which the residents can rent out for a reasonable fee, to visiting guests and family members.

The Phoenician condo is conveniently located nearby the C-Train, Crowchild Trail, and a sizable shopping centre.  The building on the east, across the street from the Phoenician is unrelated offices, built by the same builder.  I have included listings in the Galleria below, for convenience sake.  The Galleria condos are directly East of the Phoenician and across the street.

Everyone that I have spoken with at the Phoenician condo just loves it there, and I’m sure you will too.
