From the historical Bank of Montreal to the famous stone mansion occupied by Patrick Burns, Thomas Underwood’s construction shaped many of Calgary’s first buildings, even some that are still standing today. The red brick structure of an original Underwood building, built in 1905, is preserved and incorporated into the design of the Underwood Tower in an effort to retain and celebrate our city’s rich history. Tucked between Stephen Avenue, First Street and 17th Avenue, the Underwood is proudly built in his name, maintaining a strong legacy of community leadership.
With 225 suites to choose from, the Underwood hosts a variety of upscale housing with four luxury finishing packages. Bright, beautifully designed, air-conditioned spaces with nine-foot ceilings alongside an in-suite washer and dryer are almost enough to seal the deal, but let’s not forget about the kitchen. Quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large island for all your cooking needs – they’ve really done it all.
Top it all off with floor-to-ceiling windows so that you can truly enjoy the spectacular, unobstructed view – west facing for a gorgeous mountainscape and south facing for a breathtaking cityscape. All suites are pet-friendly with no breed restrictions and select units include a barbeque hookup on the balcony.
The top floor of the Underwood hosts your in-building amenities: a fitness facility, a yoga studio/recreation room, wet bar/kitchen and entertainment lounge alongside a patio with lounge seating, fireplaces and a barbeque.
The main floor of the Underwood provides 8000 square feet of retail space and will serve as a market with unique food purveyors, independent producers, and/or local merchants. You will have easy access to the best of Calgary at your doorstep.
As if this wasn’t enough, the build also provides:
- Onsite property management
- Lifestyle Curator services
- Car wash
- Underground parking
- Underground dog wash
- Storage lockers
- Parcel delivery services
