Discover Mount Royal
A Brief History
Since Mount Royal’s inception in the early 1900s, it has been known as an exclusive neighbourhood for affluent citizens. Originally named “American Hill” due to the amount of Americans living in the community, Mount Royal got its more Canadian name later on. In the past, there were restraints on the types of homes allowed to be built, only single family detached homes could be constructed and there was a minimum housing construction cost implemented. These homes have been maintained over the years which makes Mount Royal one of the oldest and most exclusive communities in Calgary.
Mount Royal is divided into two sections, Upper Mount Royal and Lower Mount Royal. While both remain prestigious, Lower Mount Royal was subdivided into smaller lots and most older buildings are made of wood and stucco as opposed to Upper Mount Royal’s larger lots and building materials of brick and sandstone. West Ridge Fine Homes has been a Mount Royal home builder for many years, we look forward to giving you a glance inside.
