We like working in Calgary North East. We’ve successfully finished lots of gutter cleaning projects here. From bungalows to 2-story houses with walkouts, garages, sun-rooms, and guest houses. We cleaned eavestroughs and downspouts on single-family houses, duplexes, condo- and townhouse complexes, as well as warehouses, community centers, and senior homes. We look forward to making more homes happy in NE.
Northeast Calgary is a vast district with attractions like TELUS Spark science centre and the Calgary Zoo. The Hangar Flight Museum displays rare commercial and military aircraft in a WWII drill hall next to Calgary International Airport. Shopping complexes like Deerfoot City and Sunridge Mall offer chain stores and eats, while green spaces include golf courses and small parks.
Close to downtown, the neighbourhoods of Bridgeland and Crescent Heights, are older, more historic, more bougie, and are very walkable by Calgary standards. Here is where you hear stories of the early immigrants and witness a new wave of gentrification. It’s the home of St. Vladimir’s, many seniors’ residences, the Italian supermarket, and trendy eateries and coffeeshops where the staff invariably wear a denim apron. The Bow River is close by with opportunities for recreation and plenty of scenic vistas for strolls and cycling, and St. George’s Island park provides a striking example of contemporary art and architecture intersecting with nature.
Further away from downtown is a much younger city perhaps best symbolized by Calgary’s mayor elected in 2010 (and re-elected in 2013, and 2016), Naheed Nenshi. An Ismaili Muslim and the son of immigrants from Tanzania of Indian heritage, the Northeast is his home. Many Calgarians here have a similar story of coming from other countries, weaving their many cultures and languages into the city. Physically, this part of the Northeast is generic suburban sprawl punctuated by massive big-box stores, albeit with the twist of more businesses catering to many different diaspora and immigrant communities.
