Our perspective

Everything about The Edward is done to the absolute highest standards in luxury retirement living. This includes five star dining daily, beautifully contemporary, urban living suites and apartments, and in-house amenities that you’d expect to find on a luxury cruise liner. Its visionary in its treatment of seniors. It's the right retirement home for people who appreciate the finest things in life, or for families who want the quintessential good life for their older loved ones.

The Edward sets another new standard in elegantly luxurious retirement living in the city of Calgary. Every aspect of this building is upscale and nothing but the absolute finest. You’re greeted by a concierge. There’s a long list of in-house amenities that includes several outdoor patios, a rooftop garden, an elegant piano bar, an in-house creative studio, a fitness centre, wellness centre, and a salon and spa. Suites are spacious and ultra-modern, with European-style kitchens and designed for the ultimate in comfort.

Among the highlights of The Edward, we must talk about the dining, and delve deeper into the amenities. Five star dining here meets or exceeds the standards of the city’s finest restaurants. Fare is a daily experience, really, with meals made of the finest fresh, farm-to-table ingredients and crafted into culinary delights by professional chefs.

The design and decor of amenities is striking in itself, including The Marda Theatre, The Marjorie dining room, and The Nest bistro. The naming of features gives you a foretaste of their exclusivity and acute attention to detail. For example, The Marjorie features a marble and stone fireplace, meals are always served with wine, and you’re likely to be entertained by live jazz. You’re greeted by a maître d’ who describes specials and bar selections. That’s just one instance of the impeccable elegance of The Edward. And for all that, it’s important to note that dining is flexible, and you can also eat in the more casual bistro.

Suffice it to say that you don’t really need to set foot outside of the building to be wowed on a daily basis. That said, though, The Edward is set in a suitably quiet neighbourhood, part of the cSPACE community, a vibrant community dedicated to supporting artists and visionary entrepreneurs. The Edward is an exciting breakthrough, really, another fitting example of Optima Living’s unique vision for senior living in Western Canada.

This is an amazing Senior Living Residence! Our mum has definitely found her new best home.

Layne Merryfield, family member

The Edward is the most incredible senior living facility I've ever visited! I'm so glad my grandma chose to live here. All the staff are so patient, personable and attentive, and the facility is beautiful. And the FOOD! OMG. Better than many Calgary restaurants. Once we toured here, there was no competition. It is far and away the most luxurious option.

Randy Hauer and L. Scott, resident

My wife and I have been watching the construction of the Edward and had opportunity to visit the recently opened sales centre. There is much to admire about the concept and mission. What really struck us is the way the development is integrated into (onto) the c-Space King Edward Art Colony. A thriving and vibrant art community of its own, at the very doorstep. That and a commanding view of the neighbourhood, legacy homes, old trees and a few minutes walk to Marda Loop. Nothing else in the urban area of Calgary can match this location. Looking very forward to seeing the finished construction.
