Calgary’s richest neighbourhood hugs the east bank of the Elbow River, with gently rolling hills offering million-dollar views of the river valley and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. 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 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. Though this neighbourhood ranks 16th in terms of household net worth, the people in Britannia have the highest average annual household salaries of any neighbourhood on the list, at $1.45 million per year.
