The Guardian North

The Tallest Residential Tower in Calgary

The Guardian North, as the tallest residential tower in Calgary at 44 storeys, will naturally provide the most impressive views of any home in the city. It is ideally situated to take full advantage of the investment benefits that come with living in the rapidly evolving Victoria Park neighbourhood as well as its connections to Downtown, 17th Ave., Stampede Park, East Village and Inglewood.

In addition to its auspicious height and ideal location, The Guardian North offers top of the line Architecture, interior design, finishes and amenities at a price point conspicuously lower than the industry standard.

How is this possible?

The Guardian North is the result of a rare land deal.

Hon Towers seized the unique opportunity to purchase an incomplete project out of receivership at a greatly reduced price in order to build a tower that would be accessible to most Calgarians, but with a level of quality and innovation reserved for more expensive developments.

To build on this financial advantage, Hon Towers assembled a team of industry veterans to ensure that every aspect of The Guardian North would be considered with the resident in mind. From optimized living spaces to exclusive Italian kitchen cabinets from Armony Cucine to expansive balconies, everything at The Guardian North puts a new perspective on urban living.

One Bedrooms starting from $296,900.
Two Bedrooms starting from $429,900.

    The Guardian North Floorplans

    The interior designers for The Guardian North employed progressive, modern design to create homes that make the most efficient use of space yet are still eminently comfortable. They minimized hallway space to maximize living space and added extra storage and generous closets. Each suite in The Guardian North draws in abundant natural lighting, provides panoramic views and encourages movement in wide open, flexible spaces.

    And unlike many other developments, The Guardian North was built around the ideal set of floor plans, not the exterior architecture. There are no suites at The Guardian North that are less than ideal because each one received the individual attention of a veteran interior designer and architect.
