The Canadian Army opened what was called the Currie Barracks on the southwestern edge of Calgary in 1933, occupying a property on the level plateau above the south slope of the Bow River valley. The facility was named after the recently deceased General Sir Arthur William Currie, commander of the Canadian Expeditionary Force on the Western Front during World War I.
Over the next decade, the facility would house a combination of personnel from the Royal Canadian Infantry Corps and Royal Canadian Army Service Corps, along with personnel from the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
During World War II, the Currie Barracks became an army training centre for units mobilized in southern Alberta; it was designated A-16. These mobilized units were tasked to provide reinforcements for The Calgary Highlanders and The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada.
Following the war in 1946, the Currie Barracks became home to Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) and 1st Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry as part of Canada's transition to having an expanded regular force army during the early years of the Cold War. The Currie Barracks underwent rapid expansion during the Korean War as the facility transformed into a major military centre, owing to its convenient access to the Canadian Pacific Railway's transcontinental mainline to Vancouver three kilometres to the north. Headquarters Calgary Garrison was formed on October 26, 1950 in response to the need to coordinate the administration of army units stationed at and cycling through the Currie Barracks; thus the facility also began to use the names Calgary Garrison and Calgary Barracks

This condo is my very first home & my most prized possession. I chose it among all of the others available because it was love at first sight. The hexagon marble backsplash was nothing I’d seen before; the quartz countertops sparkled; the fact there was enough closet space for the BF and I was astonishing. I could picture myself hosting events & utilizing the open space: friends seated in the living area, sharing stories as the BF & I prep our favorite meal on the gas stove. Hosting slumber parties for my nieces, turning the den into their weekend bedroom. The 7 min commute by car to my office downtown or 25 mins by bike (which we could store in the secure bike room). A cheap Uber ride when we decided to enjoy a few extra glasses of wine on the patios of 17th Ave. The shopping options were also a plus; 5 mins to Westhills, 10 mins to Chinook – what I saved on gas, I spent on decorating. It all just fit! I will always be proud to say that this was my first home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! – JenMore details
