AREA RE­VI­TAL­IZED

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - — An­drea Cox

Marda Loop is be­com­ing a trendy place to be. With its funky mom and pop stores, restau­rants and cof­fee shops, it of­fers plenty for peo­ple to see and do.

The area, cen­tred on 33rd and 34th Av­enues south­west be­tween Crowchild Trail and 19th Street S.W. bi­sects both Al­ta­dore and South Cal­gary.

It is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing sig­nif­i­cant re­vi­tal­iza­tion, as are the ad­ja­cent sur­round­ing ar­eas, where older homes are giv­ing way to new higher-den­sity de­vel­op­ments.

Named af­ter Marc and Mada Jenk­ins, own­ers of the now de­mol­ished Marda Theatre, Marda Loop was a turn­around point for the Marda street­car line.
