The neighbourhood of Britannia was designed from the very beginning to be an upscale community: in 1952, when the average Calgary lot was going for $250, building lots in Britannia, which hugs the East bank of the Elbow River, were sold for up to $5,000. Today it remains a landmark collection of some of the best examples of mid-century modern architecture in the city, and it has the real estate prices to prove it, with average home prices of almost $2.4 million. While the residents of Britannia rank 15th in terms of average net worth, their average annual income, at over $1.3 million, makes them the highest-paid on the entire ranking. They’re also the most enthusiastic skiers of their wealthy Calgary peers, with nearly a third hitting the slopes come winter.
