The Block on 17th Avenue saw Avi Urban create a unique townhome opportunity for professionals looking for work space in the inner city.
Completed in 2014. The Block is a boutique four storey development featuring a collection of 60 apartments and townhomes off 17th Avenue SW. The inclusion of the live/work townhomes was a direct result of a market need to both live and work within the same space.
The townhomes at The Block provide an amazing place to live, zero commute time and significant efficiencies both logistically and financially over the traditional ‘home versus office’ situation the majority of us live with every day. The architecture spoke to those looking for contemporary urban style and considering that 17th Ave is the hot spot for young professionals in Calgary, it really was a case of location, location, location.
With the homes built around a landscaped communal courtyard, The Block has become a community within a community.
