Mckenzie Towne is a beautifully maintained community in the southeast of Calgary with over 18,000 residents in more than 7,000 dwellings.

The community is made up of four areas: Elgin, Prestwick, Inverness and High Street, each providing their own architecture styles. Elgin features six different types of architecture designed to emulate Europe. Prestwick and Inverness have four styles including Victorian, Georgian, Craftsman and National. The fourth area and the hub of the town is High Street.
