New professionals. A couple looking to build a life together. A young family. People dreaming of buying a home to call their own. While prices of homes have steadily climbed in Calgary, wages and salaries haven’t been as quick to catch up. So, the dream is just that — a dream. Until Brad Remington Homes’ Copperfield Park condos came to the scene.

Imagine you are a new professional, working your nine-to-five day and dreaming about buying your own home. Or you are a couple looking to build a life and your next step is moving in together. What if you are married and need space to grow your family? While prices of homes have steadily climbed in Calgary, wages and salaries haven’t been as quick to catch up.

For many starting a life on their own, the rental market is the reality; and with the increasing rental rates, this is fast going out of reach too.

Brad Remington Homes has stepped up to the challenge with their Copperfield Park developments that offer affordable homes everyone can own, including singles, couples and downsizers, without having to compromise their ability to own a car, go on trips, or experience life as it should be lived. And buyers have responded resoundingly, as both Copperfield Parks I and II exceeded all sales expectations. And with Copperfield Park III now about to launch, the best condo home owning deals in town will continue for some time.

The first Copperfield Park launched in 2011 and sold out in less than two years, their follow up Copperfield Park II had been even more successful, hitting the 98 per cent sold mark just two months after they opened six new show suites in May. Brad Remington Homes is getting ready to launch Copperfield Park III and there is no reason to think it won’t be another hit.

“Our mission, ‘Love it, Live it, Afford it,’ is the driving force behind what we’re building,” says Brad Remington Homes’ vice-president of sales and marketing, Bryan Logel. “We know it’s important to have an emotional connection to your home. You need to love it to live it and underlying that, you need to be able to afford it.”

Brad Remington Homes’ ability to offer well-designed one-bedroom condos starting from the $130,000s, two-bedrooms from the low $200,000s and three-bedroom units from the $230,000s has been a big part of their appeal. Coupled with their location in the established community of Copperfield in the southeast, and stylish open concept floor plans that lets homeowners’ personalities shine through, it’s easy to see why the Copperfield Park collection has been a favourite among condo buyers.

Copperfield Park III is expected to continue this winning tradition when it launches sales in mid-September, as it will offer all 12 popular models from Copperfield Park II, and at much the same prices. The six show suites in the latter will still serve as a brilliant way of showing the lifestyle possibilities that will be available here.

Among the innovative models is the F Plan, which is Brad Remington Homes’ version of the micro-suite that has been all the rage in urban centres in Europe and North America.

At 525 square-feet, the F Plan is much larger than most of these so-called micro-suites and it has been a big hit at Copperfield Park II, as its open design meets the needs of most first time homeowners. It only seems small in space, but like all of the suites in the Copperfield Park series, the F Plan displays a sensible design that allows owners to maximize space without compromising comfort.

“We want to help Calgarians to build a livable life, starting with a home they love,” says Logel. “It’s important to us that homeowners can envision themselves living in these homes and not lose functionality. We put ourselves in the shoes of Calgarians, asking ourselves, ‘can I see myself living here?’ and our answer is yes.”

The Copperfield Park condos are is built with an environmentally friendly design created for unique, creative and original homeowners. The innovative design provides quality and value for an affordable price. They all blend well into this suburban neighbourhood dotted with several parks and pathways.

Speaking of the neighbourhood, Brad Remington Homes realizes the important role their location in Copperfield has played in their success. The accessibility of this vibrant southeast community has been a big factor for its appeal. It sits behind the newly opened Stoney Trail extension and is only a few blocks from 52nd Street S.E. and Deerfoot Trail. It is only a 20-minute drive to downtown and getting to the airport is even faster.

It’s also close to the new South Health Campus hospital, and if you get the lights, you can be there and the rest of the Seton commercial complex in under 10 minutes. Professionals working in the hospital or the surrounding commercial and industrial complexes nearby find this amazing accessibility the perfect companion to the affordability Copperfield Park condos already offer.

And if that’s not enough, residents also have access to a seven-acre wildflower pond just outside their doors, pathways to run and bike along, tennis courts, an outdoor skating rink for our long winters, neighbourhood playgrounds to bring your kids to and two toboggan hills the right size for kids and/or adults.

Copperfield Park III will continue with the foundation built from Copperfield Park I and II and continue to cultivate an eclectic and unique community. While Copperfield Park II is virtually sold out, homeowners can still find an opportunity to buy their dream home; Brad Remington Homes will be accepting registration for Copperfield Park III in September.
