Apartment Rentals1

In 2007, Calgary had a vacancy rate of 1.5%, up 1% from the 0.5% vacancy rate the year previous. While vacancy rates rose in all areas of the city in 2007, the northwest saw the largest increase at 2.7%, whereas Chinook, in the southwest near downtown, only recorded an increase of 0.3%.

Apartments are mostly found clustered in and around the downtown area. Areas such as the Beltline, the Downtown West End and the Downtown East Village continue to have the highest concentration of apartment buildings in the Calgary metro area.

In 2007, there were a total of 38,150 units in the rental apartments down 5.4% from the prior year when there were 40,333 total units. The decrease is largely attributed to the conversion of these rental properties to condominium ownership properties.
