Cardel Lifestyles

Pantella Park Big on Quality, Small on Price

If you’ve been looking for a townhouse condominium, but haven’t found the quality of craftsmanship or kind of community that meets your needs, Cardel Lifestyles, a division of Cardel Custom Homes has the answer. Cardel is now building multifamily homes with the same high standards as their renowned single family homes, and in communities that are among the most desirable in Calgary.

The company has just started pre-selling its latest project, Panatella Park, located in the master-planned community of Panorama Hills. With prices starting in the low $150’s, Panatella Park represents a level of affordable housing that is hard to find in this type of community.

Panatella Park consists of 78 townhouses with an elegant, Craftsman-style architectural theme. Exterior highlights include natural cedar shake detailing and stone pillar accents. A rear deck on each unit, most facing toward green space, and a front porch provides a welcoming feel to the entrance of each townhouse.

Three distinctive floor plans are available, averaging 1,260 square feet. Each of the floor plans can be configured either with two master suites, each with walk-in and ensuite, and a main level 1/2 bath; or a three-bedroom layout with one upper level bath and a half-bath on the main level.  You can also choose the floor plan you want, and the location in the project that you want. Unlike some developments, the floor plans are not restricted to a certain location.

One parking stall is included with each unit, and an optional second stall is available. Residents will also enjoy a central park area, benches and pathways that wind throughout the complex. Panatella Park is also a part of the Genstar E-Community, linked into the communities constantly updated online information centre.

A big reason for the instant success of Cardel’s condominium projects is the quality that goes into them. Cardel uses the same level of building specifications, the same team of tradespeople, and the same suppliers for building their multi-family projects as they do for their single-family homes. If you took a single townhouse from Panatella Park, and built it by itself, it would be the same as one of Cardel’s single-family homes. Whether it’s one of the 600 Cardel Custom Homes built each year in Calgary, the company’s resort homes in Canmore, its mountain lodges at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, or the townhouses of Panatella Park - each shares the same level of Cardel quality. As a highly successful builder with 32 years in the business, Cardel also has tremendous buying power. For buyers of a townhouse at Panatella Park, that translates into a level of quality at a price point that is hard to beat.

Panatella Park also shines with its location in Panorama Hills. Access to the community is quick and convenient via Country Hills Boulevard, either east or west. Residents of Panatella Park are also walking distance to a wealth of amenities. The newly opened Cardel Place is a 195,000-square-foot recreation centre with arenas, gym, and swimming pool. The facility, developed by the city in partnership with Cardel, will also soon have a Catholic high school and public junior high school.

Also within walking distance is Country Hills Town Centre, a major commercial centre with a Superstore, Canadian Tire, Staples, Home Depot, Sobeys and many other stores. There are also more than 10 restaurants of all types in the centre, along with the Silver City theatre complex.

Cardel Lifestyles has just started pre-selling townhouses in Panatella Park, with construction anticipated to commence in early 2005.
