- No cookie cutters.
- No chasing trends.
Founded in 2018, Oldstreet was borne out of a desire to build better – better homes, better communities and a better Calgary.
Stylish projects, each one unique. No cookie cutters, and no chasing trends leaving homes and communities feeling dated and listless. We create buildings that hold their value while enhancing and reinforcing community character.
We bring much needed quality housing stock to inner city communities, contributing to more dense, thriving communities – communities that we ourselves, and our kids, and their kids, will want to live in.
With each development we ask ourselves “does this look great now and will this look great 10, 20, 50 years from now? Does this create a more beautiful, vibrant and livable community? Is this a home we would want to live in ourselves?” These questions guide our every decision throughout the creative process.
Fellow Calgarians: Let’s build the best city in the world. Let’s build a global city that is beautiful, vibrant and sustainable. Let’s build the Calgary of the future!
“Be the change you want to see in the world”.

We have spent time exploring iconic neighbourhoods in global cities such as London’s Chelsea, Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, Brooklyn’s Park Slope and Boston’s Beacon Hill (we suggest you do the same!). We love the density, walkability, access to local amenities, diversity and character in these communities. We are inspired by the timeless and dramatic brownstones and other low and medium density housing options in these neighbourhoods and the lifestyle they afford their residents. In fact, Oldstreet is named after a tube station in London!
We constantly seek new and interesting global destinations for travel – we draw inspiration from unique cultures, weather, lifestyles, art, architecture, design, cuisine and much more. We have been moved to action by the Pura Vida lifestyle in Costa Rica (a great place to beat Canadian winters!) and are excited to grow our presence throughout the country and in other unique and interesting global destinations in the future.
We promise to use the highest quality standards of design and construction. We will build every home as if it was our own. We will respect and enhance neighbourhood character and vitality and build upon existing heritage and cultural identity. We will foster efficient use of land, helping to create complete communities that offer a greater variety of housing choices. We will help rejuvenate communities and create a better quality of life for residents and guests – the elderly living next to young families, school yards full of activity, bustling coffee shops and local business thriving.
This is our promise and our commitment to our customers, our neighbours and the communities we are in.
Will you sell us a home before it is complete?
Do you have any projects coming that are not listed on your website?
Do you offer a warranty on your homes?
Will you build me a custom home?
Do you pay realtor commissions on land or homes not listed on MLS?
Why is Oldstreet now building rentals?
As Canada’s population grows and home prices continue to outpace incomes in many parts of the country, the demand for rental housing continues to grow. We want to do our part in keeping housing affordable and accessible for more people (especially in Calgary, where our relative affordability has been a good competitive advantage!).
Also, we think renting is cool – you can save money to get ahead, allocate more spending to travel, friends and family and live more flexibly, trying out different housing types, neighbourhoods and cities.
