One of the city’s very popular inner-city communities is Marda Loop, a trading/residential area that spans the south end of the community of South Calgary and the north end of the Garrison Woods/Altadore district.
The last 15 years has really seen a significant change where this once quiet community has turned into a hip destination. Part of the desirability of the area has been the commercial area that runs along 33 Ave SW and 34 Ave SW between 20St SW and Crowchild Trail.
It’s become more urban and more walkable according to Bob van Wegen who is in charge of the Marda Loop business district. He was asked for comment recently for an article in the Calgary Real Estate News.
