Our Perspective

How we see Boardwalk Retirement Community

We love that Boardwalk Properties are cultivating a reputation for excellence with this and other projects in the city. If you’re considering a move here, feel confident that they will continue to develop this into a superb place to live. Award winning renovations elsewhere in the city have turned buildings into luxurious destinations that have blown away tenants’ expectations.

Boardwalk Retirement Community is entering a new phase of life, thanks to recent renovations. Let us be one of the first to praise the refreshing change. Boardwalk Properties won the 2018 Calgary Residential Rental Association’s (CRRA) Award for 2018 Best Renovation of the Year. And you can bet this bodes well for 55-plus Calgarians looking for apartments with flair.

There are several standout features of this building. We love the fireplace lounge, where people gather to chat or check out what’s on the big screen. Secondly, views of northern Calgary are spectacular from the many apartments with private balconies. The support staff here is professional and driven, and people are enthusiastic about the recreation and social activities available.

Mahdi Zareian, resident

"Their agents are very kind and helpful. I rented a house in this building recently from my country, that was a hard job. But the office helped us so much. They show the house on Whatsapp to us. Also, [they] spent a lot of time helping us and answer our questions on Whatsapp. I want to say thank you to her and the boardwalk for having this office. Also, cost of the rent of this building is rational (based on our comparisons), and the location of the building is helpful for everyone. Besides, the ..."

"My mom's fridge died late on Sunday afternoon and I called the maintenance department; my call was answered right away, a maintenance person came to her apartment within 2 hours, the fridge could not be fixed so a new one was found for her and installed in her apartment within an hour. Amazing, professional, and caring service. "
