Building a legacy

There’s no time like the present to seize the day or for homebuyers, to seize the opportunity of a lifetime to craft a dream home in one of Calgary’s newest, up-and-coming southeast communities.

Affordable as they are timeless, the apartment-style condos at My Legacy Park, developed by Brad Remington Homes, had an impressive response right from the get-go. Bryan Logel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Brad Remington Homes, says the third of four phases was launched earlier than expected. 

“We originally planned to launch the third phase in September, but instead we needed to launch it in June because we sold out so early,” he says. “As far as sales go for phase three, we had lineups on our launch day and now we’ve had our best quarter ever.” 

The first and second buildings are completely sold with construction well underway. For the third building, sales are already over 50 per cent sold and potential buyers can expect a move-in date for the spring of 2017. With a total of 310 homes, My Legacy Park is a four-phase development located in the award-winning community of Legacy at 210 Avenue S.E., right off of Macleod Trail.

“We’ve created this opportunity for people to own a place of their own today, right now, so they can start creating equity for themselves and their families in the future,” says Logel. “This is a chance to take advantage of the lowest prices I’ve seen in a decade or more.”

There are eight diverse floorplans to choose from at My Legacy Park to suit a variety of lifestyles and budgets. Each building has been tweaked and improved since the last one, and the third phase is no different. 

The popular G plan in the previous buildings, which won a SAM award for best floorplan this past year, has been revised and refreshed into the G2 — an ultimate flex plan. Starting at $177,900 and 647 square-feet in size, the G2 is available as either a two-bedroom with one-and-a-half baths, or a one-bedroom with a comfortable flex area.

“It’s incredible that you can have something of this quality and magnitude when you consider the prices,” says Logel. “The specifications are even stronger with nine-feet high ceilings, stainless steel appliances — and your choice of quartz or granite countertops — premium made-in-Alberta cabinetry available as a two-tone option, soft-touch close doors and drawers, and underground titled parking and storage space for everyone.”

Following the success of Copperfield Park, My Legacy Park is another example of Brad Remington Homes’ reputation for delivering quality homes in every aspect, both inside and out. The exteriors are as classic as they are durable with a detailed combination of brick and James Hardie premium siding. Blending seamlessly into the surrounding natural environment, living in the masterplan community of Legacy itself has plenty more to offer.

From the stonework and castle-like features at the entranceways, to the scenic ponds and pathways, plus 300 acres of an environmentally-protected reserve, Legacy is truly a self-sustaining community and a place to call home at any stage in life. The ease of stepping outside and living a little easier, a little quieter is there along with state-of-the-art playgrounds, a community garden, and stunning water fountains.

“There are a lot of features to the community and there’s an amazing feel when you first arrive,” describes Logel. “Those who are purchasing are young, upwardly-mobile, and they love the idea of Legacy being a state community.”

A new high school in Legacy is planning to open in the fall of 2018, along with three other elementary or middle schools to follow. Nearby amenities are minutes away including the Shawnessy Shopping Centre and Somerset LRT station, the Seton shopping area, and the South Calgary Health Campus.

Residents can also look forward to a future shopping district right in the corner of Legacy. Logel says the mall will be about the size of Crowfoot Village with over 800,000 square-feet of retail shops, restaurants, entertainment, and office spaces.

“It’s quite an undertaking but the goal is to make it a south entrance flagship mall,” he says. 

“So for anyone coming into Calgary from the south, the mall will be their number one destination.”

Location is a huge selling point for homebuyers as the commute from Legacy to downtown Calgary takes half an hour via MacLeod Trail. Adding to the convenience, it’s easy to travel to other parts of the city via Deerfoot Trail, Stoney Trail, and the Ring Road going west in the future. 

So what’s the secret behind the success of My Legacy Park? Logel says it’s because they’re doing all the right things. “We’ve got an absolutely unbelievable product, we’ve got these incredible prices, and we’ve got a location where people say ‘hey, I don’t need to give up anything. I can have it all.’”CL
