Charles Block

by Oldstreet


Luxury NYC-styled brick townhomes.

The Charles Block is inspired by the timeless and sophisticated brick townhomes on Charles Street in Greenwich Village, NYC.

Designed and built, in many cases, over 100 years ago, these NYC homes remain as current today as the day they were built and continue to house and inspire artists, politicians and business elite, to name a few.


The Charles Block integrates a mix of materials and clean lines that will look as great 100 years from now as they do today – your home will never go out of style. We draw inspiration from classic architecture and design elements such as red brick, tastefully combined with modern elements such as large windows designed to maximize natural light, functional layouts and interior stylings to suit our modern lives.



At just under 2200 developed square feet, each residence of the Charles Block has plenty of space to raise a family, host your next dinner party or entertain guests for the weekend. The interior design alternatives have been professionally selected with luxury materials that are sure to impress and endure over time. Enjoy winter evenings next to your warm fireplace and summer afternoons spent reading a book or sipping a drink on your sunny, south-facing roof-top patio!


The Charles Block offers homeowners a sophisticated, inner-city lifestyle in the Marda Loop and Altadore area of Calgary. With over 150 trendy shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, Marda Loop is a walkable, street-level shopping and dining district in Southwest Calgary. Your commute to work in the city center – either by car, bike or bus – is less than ten minutes. This means more time spent with friends and family doing what you love!

Steps from Nature

Sandy Beach Park, the River Park Off Leash Area and the Glenmore Reservoir trails are mere minutes away by foot. You (and your furry friend) will have ample access to beautiful green space to stroll, jog or bike, or just to hang out and soak in the city views.

A Day in the Life

Spend your Saturday morning at a YYC Cycle spin studio, followed by a coffee with friends at the trendy Monogram café. Then treat yourself to a mid-afternoon snack at neighbourhood icon, My Favourite Ice Cream Shoppe.

Site Plan

The Charles Block is laid out efficiently with four sunny south-facing residences, each with its own garage, and plenty of available street space and parking for guests along 49th Avenue SW and 20th Street SW. It is also located on a City of Calgary bike lane, perfect for your  urban lifestyle.


The Charles Block offers two professionally curated interior design schemes. Both schemes consist of luxury, high-end materials that come standard.


Our Nordic design features a light, simple and natural palette. It is inspired by Scandinavian design principles that are intended to maximize natural light while remaining warm and inviting.
Scandinavian design principles resonate in Calgary as we also have short summers and long, dark winters, so letting in and reflecting as much light as possible in our homes becomes a priority.


Our Espresso design features a warm, simple and natural palette. The medium-tone woods create a warmth and richness that is both design-forward and luxurious, while at the same time very comfortable.
Combined with spectacular lighting, our Espresso palette creates spacious, warm, and calming rooms.
