Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill are in the northwest Quadrant of the city, located along the ridge above Hillhurst and West Hillhurst. Because of this many of the homes in this area boost stunning views of the city skyline to the south and the mountains to the west. This area has some of the most sought-after real estate in Calgary. This neighborhood has many amenities to offer residents such as the Bow River pathways, easy access to downtown shops and restaurants and close to the trendy Kensington District. Many of Calgary’s major institutions and recreational facilities are also located here such as the University of Calgary, SAIT Polytechnic, the Alberta College of Art and Design, McMahon Stadium, Foothills hospital and Foothills Athletic Park.
