Got an extra $8.3 million laying around? Feel like relocating to Canada? You could be the proud owner of this record-breaking Calgary condo, billed as the most expensive condo sold in the city.

As part of a $130 million development called “THE RIVER,” the unit will boast 5,260 square feet of living space and will be situated a mere 10 minutes from downtown on the Elbow River.

Construction on the site is slated to begin in the spring of 2012.

Things you should know about Calgary while writing the check for the downpayment:

  • It’s located near the mountain resort of Banff, home of the Banff film festival (which is well worth attending).
  • Calgary hosts the Calgary Stampede, part rodeo and part city-wide festival.
  • It was ranked as the world’s cleanest city in 2007 by Forbes Magazine.
  • Check out the website to get the full tour of the building. Fun to daydream…
