The original 3 bedroom bungalow is in mint condition with a spacious kitchen complete with gas stove & eating area. The second storey is set up as a self contained 714 sq' one bedroom suite but could easily be opened up to be part of the main living area. This level includes a 5 pce bath, sparkling kitchen with loads of counter space - family room with vaulted ceiling and south facing deck making this a bright and spacious area. Second storey is above the over sized double attached garage and has its own furnace. The basement has a "Summer Kitchen - impeccably kept kitchen cabinets from 1960, huge bedroom, 3 pce bath, living room and laundry room. The storage rooms are many and often. This unique, immaculate home is located on a corner lot measuring 110' wide x 40' deep. You will not find a cleaner home in the City of Calgary. None of the suites would be legal at this time as there has not been any application for suites. There would likely be some work still needed to make the second storey a legal suite. The current owners are using the property as one home. Some of the updates include: new roof in 2016, new insulation, 2 updated furnaces, 2 water heaters, new windows and doors, 25 new electrical outlets in the entire house recently, new toilets - taps - fixtures.

The community of Riverside was established by Russian-German immigrants during Calgary's first population boom in the 1880s, when Riverside was known as Germantown. At the beginning of the 20th century, immigrants were mostly of Italian and Ukrainian origin.[4]

The name "Bridgeland" appeared as a result of the Dominion Bridge Company operating nearby.[5]

Riverside incorporated as a village on July 6, 1903, and was subsequently annexed by the City of Calgary in 1910. In 1908 the Bridgeland-Riverside Community Association was founded.[5] A Red Light District survived in the neighbourhood until the First World War. In 1910, the Calgary General Hospital was built in this area. It was closed in 1997 and was demolished in a controlled explosion on October 4, 1998.[6]

Parts of lower Bridgeland were popularly known as "Little Italy" in emulation of similarly named enclaves in other cities of immigrants of Italian stock. The concentration of Italian bakeries, restaurants and groceries has diminished over time but the strip along 1st Avenue NE is sometimes still referred to by this name.[7]

The Calgary Zoo was established on St. George's Island in 1929 with 36 mammals and 78 birds.[8] By 2006, it had expanded to over 1,000 animals with 290 different species with exhibits from Destination Africa, Canadian Wilds, Australia, Botanical gardens, Eurasia, Prehistoric Park and South America.

Over 5,000 people participated in a public process that is underway in 2010 to develop a master plan for St. Patrick's Island.[9]

In modern times, the community is recognized as a "distinct bobo (bohemian/bourgeois) residential neighbourhood"[10] and having a high degree of walkability.[11] In 2010, Bridgeland was shortlisted by Fast Forward Weekly magazine as being among five communities as the "most livable neighbourhood" in Calgary.[12]
