Adult communities are generally developments that offer independent and maintenance-free living to residents who are at least 55 years old. While there are benefits to choosing an adult community, you may want to stay open to any premium condo that fits your needs. 55+ communities often come with restrictions that may not suit your lifestyle, including curfews, pet restrictions, limits on how you can use the property and more.

Widening your parameters to other condo buildings without age restrictions means owning a premium condo with more choice for location and amenities, including underground parking, elevators, fitness centers and more, without the rules and limitations.

Here are some of Edmonton’s most attractive premium condo communities to add to your list. 

1. Skyview

Adult living doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice luxury amenities and close access to everything the city has to offer. Skyview is one of Edmonton’s most popular neighbourhoods with an established community and quick access to the best restaurants, entertainment, and shopping Edmonton has to offer.

Aloft Skyview allows you to enjoy maintenance-free living in a premium condo without making compromises on location. Aloft condos offer the amenities and the high-end features you need for convenient, easy living.
