For those looking to own property as close to the action of Main Street as possible, the Town Centre and Railway neighbourhoods offer a number of possibilities, from the mature single family homes and townhouses that line Railway Avenue to the blend of apartment style condominiums found closer to the heart of the Town. The homes and townhomes along Railway are situated just across from a number of amenities including grocery stores, retail stores, and restaurants, and back onto more of Canmore’s extensive trails systems, allowing owners some of the shortest walks into the Town centre possible. These homes are also set very close to the Town’s high school and recreation centre, making them a fantastic choice for those looking for a family home for the years to come.

Many of the apartments style condominiums that are found closer to the Town centre are of relatively newer construction, with a number sitting above retail spaces on the ground level, providing a metropolitan feel for those owning here. This area has proven popular with both full time residents and weekend owners, as underground parking and dedicated stalls ensure that there is never a problem having a spot for your vehicle during the busy holiday times. With none of the buildings rising above four floors, owners here enjoy spectacular views in most every direction, and have all the Town’s best shops, galleries, and restaurants just steps away from their front door.

Some of the street’s in this area include: 6th-9th Avenue, 8th – 10th Street, Pinewood Crescent and Railway Avenue.
