The Vista West condo, formerly named the West Pointe Plaza is steps away from the C-Train on 7th Avenue, and has some comfortable and conventional floor plans. It is barely visible, with no identifiable markings except for the address “683” if you happen to glance upward.
VISTA WEST CONDO
The Vista West condo is nestled in among the Axxis on the East, Tarjan Place on the North and Discovery Pointe on the Northwest, and Westmount Place on the South. The high-rise Condominium is located at 683 10th Street SW, Calgary. It is right off the 7th Avenue C-Train route, so you can’t beat that for easy access. There are a number of retail establishments on the main floor, and proximity to the C-Trains is unsurpassed.
Brrrrr……it was chilly on theis day… The Vista West condo was designed by Stantec Architecture Ltd. and built by Point of View Developments in 2001. It is twenty-one stories high. The two Penthouse Units on the 21st floors and the larger suites on the 19th and 20th Floors have spectacular views from the spectacular and recognizable “crown” which can be seen in the photo below. Most of the West facing units have a great view of the Bow River and Rocky Mountains. The North facing units look into Tarjan Pointe and on the East, an office tower.
There are two “Richard” wood-finished elevators in the Vista West. There is a good selection of floor plans and sizes, with most leaning toward a more traditional layout, which is kind of nice to see. Visitors of the Vista West are first welcomed to a pleasing and beautiful water feature and then directed to the elevators in behind it.
On the second floor of the Vista West condo, there is a large exercise Room with adjoining steam room, and ping pong table, and as well, there is a social room which may be booked through the on-site manager’s office. There is also an adjoining treadmill room.
