Minto Apartments introduces ‘The International’ rental apartments in downtown Calgary

Ottawa, ON (August 22, 2019) – Minto Apartments introduces its latest rental offering with the conversion of Calgary’s International Hotel into premium long- and short-term rental apartments, known as The International. Scheduled to welcome residents as early as September 2019, this newly renovated 35-storey tower with 252 units is home to a rooftop terrace, lobby bar, full-service fitness centre, party room, media room and modernized indoor pool, with direct access to the Plus 15.

“We’ve completely reimagined this space over the past four years with a modern nostalgic vibe to honour the history of this property, and amenities that cater to urban lifestyles,” says George Van Noten, Senior Vice President, Property Operations, Minto Properties Inc. “With its location on the Plus 15, The International is truly connected to the core, poised to attract young professionals and newcomers to the city who are looking for spacious, high-quality rentals.”

Four model suites are open for interested renters, including fully furnished one- and two- bedroom units with stainless steel appliances and open concept floor plans. “Sixteen units in the building will be rented as furnished suites – oversized units that come complete with a full kitchen and home furnishing that are particularly attractive to business travelers looking for an alternative to hotel accommodations,” says Van Noten.
