Between the exciting East Village and the hip First Ave shops of Bridgeland in Calgary, Alberta, lies the de Waal Block. Built in 1910, it was fully restored in 2001 and has been meticulously maintained since. The refurbished red brick building has recaptured much of its original Edwardian charm in addition to all the contemporary updates of plumbing, electrical and heating. The heritage structure is on the Calgary Evaluated Historic Resources list and was honored by receiving the prestigious City of Calgary Heritage Authority “Lion Award” for outstanding restoration. Anchor tenants include Jin Bar, recently opened, and the kitchen/bath cabinet company - EKKO. The second floor sees several designer offices and Calgary Musicians Union office among others. The ½ acre lot has over 35 parking spaces designated for tenants and customer parking. Beautiful Meredith Rd. with its stately Elm trees and green boulevard has on street parking as well. A renaissance is underway in the building's neighborhood - Bridgeland/Riverside. As proof, the recently built Meredith Block across the street offers retail that includes the organic supermarket - Blush Lane, a specialty cake place, gym - and 6 floors of office space with Benevity as anchor. Down the street a high-rise condo with main floor retail has just broken ground, Bridgeland Distillery has opened around the corner with more to come.
