Age restricted condos are viewed as an adult-only alternative to family-oriented condo living in Calgary. Typically, these are two bedroom suites. They are more appropriate for hosting family gatherings and visitors. Age appropriate amenities may include expanded green space for sitting and gardening.
These are accommodations for older couples looking to downsize. They can include high-end furnishings and larger spaces. This suits grandparents who want space for visiting children and grandchildren.
Some retirees prefer to live in a quieter community without younger people.
Age restricted condominiums have an age minimum for permanent residents. This restriction is intended for suite occupants and not visitors. Condo bylaws and rules are written to support this age restriction.
