Presented in Partnership with VERSUS

Living in downtown Calgary has many perks and often as a renter, you only get to experience half of them. Not everyone has the budget to own a new downtown condo, but with ONE Properties’ new rental building in the Beltline, called VERSUS you can get the rental prices and not have to compromise on style.

With VERSUS, you can have everything you want in a home AND benefit from the many perks of the city right outside your door. It will become a toss up of home vs. downtown – the choice will be tough, but while living in VERSUS the choice is yours.

Eating Out vs. Eating In

VERSUS eating

I find that I like to eat out when I don’t like my kitchen. Living in VERSUS would change that. Now I would be thinking, “Should I ask my friends to meet me at one of the dozens of amazing restaurants right outside my door, or should I invite them over for a dinner party?” The choice is yours.

Netflix Night vs. Movie Night

VERSUS movie
We all know that sometimes we just want a night to relax and watch a movie. Living downtown you can relax at home and catch something on Netflix, or you can see a new movie in the Eau Clair theatre or at one of the city’s two independent theatres just down the street.

House Party vs. Going Out

VERSUS party

Let’s face it, when you live in an unsightly home, you usually don’t want to invite your friends over for a house party. If you live in a nice modern open concept space like VERSUS, you can have your friends over and be proud of it too! You are also just a short skip away from many downtown club and bar locations that you can try out if you want to spend the night out on the town.

Work from Home vs. Walk to Work


Many companies have work from home policies that allow for flexibility. Working from home has never been this good when you have a nice space to do it in. In a VERSUS apartment, you’ll want to spend as much time there as you can. If you work downtown, walking to work will be a slice. You’re only a couple of blocks from the +15 in the winter, and having a nice stroll before work in the morning is always good to clear your head before you start your day.

View from the Mountains vs. View of the Mountains

VERSUS mountains

One of the great things about living in Calgary is our distance to the great outdoor playground to the west. Not only can you head to the mountains on the weekends, but select units in VERSUS apartments have beautiful views of the mountains too. So even if you can’t make it out, you can still enjoy the beauty.

If you’re thinking of making the move to downtown (highly recommended) or if you live downtown and are looking for a visual upgrade, then VERSUS may be the place for you. Located at 917 10 Ave SW, the building is in a perfect location between downtown work and play.
