Property Overview

Barron Building is an 11-storey building containing 130,834 square feet of office and retail space. The property is located in the downtown commercial core, in the south west quadrant of Calgary. Barron Building was designed by Cawston and Stephenson and construction was completed in 1954. We at Strategic Group share and appreciate J.B. Barron’s vision and creativity. In Mr. Barron’s tradition we have embarked on a redevelopment program that will see the Barron Building restored as a historically significant building providing tenants with premises that are, environmentally, technologically, and aesthetically, some the finest in the City.

The Barron Building marks the shift of the Oil and Gas industries focus from Edmonton to Calgary, as well as the growth in Calgary that followed. The new Art Deco building was an immediate success; Mobil, Shell and Sun Oil were early tenants.

The Barron Building is a classic example of late 1930’s architectural design that is found in cities such as New York and Chicago. This design is unique in that the fascia is very prominent on the building and it doesn’t just rise up a straight slab like many modern towers. The corners step back at the eighth floor and then again on the eleventh floor where there was originally an apartment with a lawn and patio off the living, dining and bedrooms. The multi-use vision for the Barron Building was grand and ahead of its time, combining commercialism with entertainment and living.

The property is located on Stephen Avenue with easy access to a variety of amenities such as boutique and chain retail locations, various restaurants and greenery such as Century Gardens.
