On Saturday, November 23, Alture Properties, a Vancouver based award-winning investment real estate firm, will be launching their latest residential project – a new condo development in Calgary especially designed for real estate investors. Vancouver investors will have first opportunity to purchase units in the project before Alture’s Calgary launch.


Invest in Canada’s #1 city for investment properties!

The new construction of 57 unit investment condos are located in Midnapore, a suburb 25 minutes south of downtown Calgary (far from Calgary’s flood zone). With two transit stations, shopping, schools and amenities all within walking distance, Alture MidCity boasts an impressive Walkscore of 77.

The project near Calgary addresses serious rental needs. Current rental vacancies are under 1.2 per cent in most areas, following this summer’s horrific floods that forced thousands to leave their homes in Calgary’s downtown core and surrounding areas.

Prices for Alture MidCity start at $173,900, with each unit generating a positive cash flow.

All purchasers at Saturday’s presentation will receive a free round trip airfare to Calgary and free property management for one year.

Attend the Alture MidCity launch event to learn how to earn secure predictable passive income with real estate and discover all the benefits of investing in Calgary.

British Columbian investors look east to Alberta for income property investments. Vancouver
developer Alture Properties is building affordable condominiums at its MidCity Midnapore project and the buyers are all from Vancouver. “So far, we’ve sold 45% of the units to Vancouverites looking for cash flow property and we’re just about to break ground…” says Peter Cheung, CEO at Alture.

Alture has projects in St. Albert and Chestermere which have both been popular with its Vancouverbased network of income property investors. The MidCity project offers affordable, entry-level pricing ideal for first-time buyers looking for value. However, the high demand for rental units and their purchase price are what attract income property buyers. “…this just isn’t possible in Vancouver any more” says Cheung. It’s also no secret the Calgary
market is hot with strong price increases for condos and property in general. Cheung also points to Alberta’s economic growth, low taxation, and the highest GDP growth rate in Canada.

About MidCity:
Prices at MidCity start at $198,500 for a one-bedroom and $272,500 for a two-bedroom. AltureMidCity is situated close to grocery and retail stores, restaurants, bike trails and parks, and is within walking distance to Shawnessy and Lacombe LRT stations. The complex includes underground parking, two elevators, and a secure building entry system. Each suite comes equipped with modern amenities and innovative design features, including:

• Designer kitchens showcasing extended island and seating areas
• Stainless steel appliances
• Select one bedroom units featuring privacy bathrooms
• Abundant storage space throughout the suite
• Large windows and generous balconies that enhance the open-living experience
• In-suite laundry facilities
• Nine-foot high ceilings
