From affordable condos to opulent executive homes, Coach Hill in West Calgary is a community for everyone. This smaller neighbourhood high above Sarcee Trail on Calgary’s infamous Broadcast Hill is situated between Bow Trail SW on the south and Old Banff Coach Road SW, extending west to 69 St SW. It was named Coach Hill in honour of the long paved-over rutted wagon trail that traversed this area in the late 19th Century. The old, historic trail ran up the hill, through the Springbank area then down the back end of the hill following the Bow River. While the name evokes images of grand estate homes, more than half of the dwellings are apartment-style condos or town homes. The remaining 44% of homes are a complementary mix of affordable single-family homes and larger executive homes in a wide array of price points. The area was built-up in the mid1980s. Read More...
With just over 1,500 homes in Coach Hill, half of which are contained in multi-family units, Coach Hill is a smaller community up on Broadcast Hill. Despite its density and the perceived opportunity for investment, Coach Hill homes are 85% owner-occupied. The slope of the hill lends itself to inspired architecture in both single-family homes and multi-family developments. The first-time buyer can find the perfect condo in a low-rise three-storey-walk up or on the 10th floor of a high-rise condo with some of the best views in the city. Prices range from $200,000 for a studio or one-bedroom condo to larger four-bedroom homes in the $800,000 to $1 million range.
Nearly 80% of the population is comprised of residents over the age of 20, so Coach Hill is very much an adult-oriented neighbourhood.

With Old Banff Coach Road and Bow Trail running along the perimeter of the neighbourhood, there is little through traffic in the community.
