Sunnyside is an innercity community in Calgary, Alberta located on the north side of the Bow River immediately adjacent to Calgary's downtown. The community partners with the neighbouring community of Hillhurst to form the popular area known as Kensington.
Kensington is a Business Revitalization Zone and the communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside have an area redevelopment plan in place.
Kensington has seen a revival over the past few years with a host of new residential development by local Calgary builders. Kensington by Bucci, St Johns by Streetside, and LIDO by Batistella will add over 20,000 sq.ft. of new street level retail as well as approximately 240 residential condo-style homes to the neighbourhood. Encompassed by the areas of Hillhurst and Sunnyside, Kensington is an active family-friendly area, abundant with amenities.
