Evanston is one of the newest residential neighbourhoods in the north-west quadrant of Calgary, established in 2002. It is bounded to the west by Symons Valley Road and to the south by Stoney Trail. To the north it is bordered by Rocky View County.
In Evanston, the architects’ only intention was to build a friendly neighbourhood. In every corner, you will discover architecture conspiring to bring people together, with fewer fences and more open spaces, verandahs and back lanes. This style of community planning adds up to a feeling of openness and allows neighbourliness to flourish.
Homes & Real Estate
Architecture is a cornerstone of Evanston’s neighbourly atmosphere. Craftsman, Foursquare and Colonial are the three dominant architectural styles selected by the six builders of Evanston to create a warm and inviting neighbourhood. These classic styles provide well-articulated front entrances, rich colours and varied roof lines, evoking historical Calgary streets. Evanston has been designed to offer its residents a harmonious living. From schools to green spaces, it has all the amenities that a home-owner dreams!
