The Copperfield Park advantage

This landmark development from Brad Remington Homes continues to impres

The best just keeps getting better. Nobody knows this more profoundly than Brad Remington Homes, and their award-winning Copperfield Park series. Buyers can expect an even more impressive selection of homes here that continues to raise new standards in condominium living.

With freshly tweaked floor plans, Copperfield Park III is opening six new show suites on site this September that offer roomier living spaces. “What’s even more incredible is that we are able to hold on to our prices,” says Bryan Logel, Brad Remington Homes vice president of sales and marketing. “Our very popular one-bedroom models are starting in the $160,000s.”

Amidst the slowing Alberta economy and soft housing market, Copperfield Park III is enjoying ”incredible” sales, he adds. “We will be closing 300 sales this year, which would be our best year yet, topping the record year we enjoyed in 2014,” Logel adds.

Copperfield Park III is already 75 per cent sold out of its total 360 suites. “Considering it was only launched last fall, it would be fair to say that Copperfield Park III has been one of the rare bright spots in an otherwise slow new home market.”

But then again, this is hardly a surprise, as every Copperfield Park development since they began with the first in 2011 has been an outright success.

“Copperfield Park I was the initial offering of Brad Remington Homes and it just raced out of the gate,” Logel remembers. “Our theme of ‘love it, live it, afford it’ has really resounded with our buyers, who look at us as the best, most affordable way to get out of the rental trap and create equity in their own home.”

A big part of their success is their flexibility in accommodating their buyers’ needs. “Listening to buyer feedback and having the ability to put those changes in place has been crucial for us,” Logel points out. “This is where Brad’s lifetime of experience in building multi-family homes comes in, and we’re able to improve our homes, make the many enhancements, and maintain our fantastic low prices.”

For this phase, Brad Remington Homes brought back their popular C and C1 floor plans. Both are two-bedroom, two-bathroom plans at 792 and 825 square-feet, respectively. “These are California split plans starting at $215,900, and they are by far the best two-bedroom options out there. It’s been attracting a lot of downsizers who want to stay in this well-established neighbourhood, and young couples and singles wanting to make homeownership a reality.”

Copperfield Park III will have four four-storey buildings when complete. One-bedroom models are from 565 square-feet and start at $169,900 (F plan) while two-bedroom suites up to 973 square-feet are also available starting from the low $200,000s. Three-bedroom designs start in the mid $200,000s, with many of the models having incredible views.

Adding to the allure is that this third phase of the development (Building 4000) will back onto a park and have some of the most spectacular views of the Rockies. “This building will have the best views in the entire community, and I anticipate we will be sold out by year end,” Logel says.

Part of the success this year stems from Brad Remington Homes’ attractive staged deposit plan that eases the burden of raising a down payment.

Logel says a down payment is often all that stands between renting and home ownership, so the developer has created this program to allow Copperfield Park III customers to pay their down payment monthly while the building is under construction. “This just makes the dream of homeownership a lot more easier to achieve.”

But bar none, the outright charm of the community of Copperfield is the biggest reason their buyers want to live here.

The nearly built-out southeast Hopewell Residential neighbourhood is at the heart of the incredibly vibrant southeast sector that is seeing enormous growth and whose full potential hasn’t even been reached. Logel counts the South Alberta Health Campus and the future development of Seton — both just 10 minutes away from their location — as huge incentives to live here.

“The master plan for neighbouring Seton is amazing, it will transform this part of the city into a strong, vibrant shopping and entertainment area to rival the downtown core. While the South Health Campus is not only a world-class hospital, it’s also a top employer. In fact, a lot of our purchasers work there,” Logel says. “And of course, there is already the existing commercial areas on 130th Avenue and along High Street that has already made life for Copperfield Park residents so convenient.”

The new show suites will open on September 12, and — for the first time — Copperfield Park will be offering quick-possession homes.

What buyers can find in these new show suites are large kitchens that have enough space for elements like an island that doubles as a dining area and space to prepare food. Logel says the Copperfield Park III kitchens have ample counter space and compares it to what can be found in single-family homes.

Other luxuries like granite or quartz counters, walk-through closets, extra storage space and titled parking are some of the creature comforts that come standard.

“Buyers have to act now if they want the chance to live in Copperfield Park III, with interest rates still at historic lows, you can’t pass on this opportunity for homeownership,” Logel says.
