Quarry Park has blossomed into one of Calgary’s most unique live-work-play developments, and new residents have steadily flocked to this amazing riverside community bringing a tremendous amount of energy with them.


The inner-city community created by Remington Development Corporation has been so successful that their two multi-family developments, The Gates and the multiple award-winning Champagne, are almost sold out.

In light of this steady demand, Remington is excited to launch Gatestone townhomes this summer, which promises to bring more versatility of product to the community while keeping up with the luxurious lifestyle that Quarry Park has gained a reputation for.

“Gatestone introduces brand new townhomes to Quarry Park, something that we haven’t seen in a couple years now,” says Remington’s Sales Manager, Julie Seidel. There will only be 15 homes in total so it will be a very exclusive offering with sales starting this summer. “We started our pre-sale wait-list a few months ago and already we’ve received a terrific response,” Seidel says.

Gatestone will be unlike any other townhomes in Quarry Park. With sizes ranging from 1,470-1,820 square-feet, they will be among the largest townhomes in the community. “Our focus was to offer plenty of space where people won’t feel like they are living in multi-family setting. Oversized open-concept main floor spaces showcase an abundance of light and great views of the surrounding community.”

Each townhome will feature rear double-attached garages and an elevated front grade allowing residents to savour the magnificent views of the canal and waterfall peninsula along Quarry Way. Spacious front porches with private walk-up staircases add an inviting aesthetic touch to the boulevard streetscape giving homeowners the quick walk-out access they crave in this live-work-play community.

The project will consist of two phases in total, the north phase featuring eight units while the south will have seven. “We strategically staggered the homes in a semi-circle fashion with minimal wall-to-wall contact to further guard against sound transfer. This arrangement allows residents to maximize their views of the green surroundings, while giving them added privacy from their neighbours.”

“With four exceptional floorplans to choose from, we really feel like we have a plan to suite every lifestyle. Our two bed/two-and-a-half bath homes are the perfect solution for an empty nester couple, or working professionals looking for the flexibility of a dual master layout. We also have three bed/two-and-a-half bath homes that are the perfect solution for any family or couple needing that separate guest room and separate office,” Seidel says.

“We have incorporated a separate personalized flex space on the main level in every floorplan which allows owners to choose what they use this space for, whether it be for extra pantry space, storage, a den, or even an extra bedroom, essentially the options are endless,” Seidel says.

Seidel adds that the Gatestone floor plans check off a lot of the “must-haves” for a wide range of buyers. Whether they are young professionals looking for in a new home where they can walk to work year round, or downsizers ready for a maintenance-free lifestyle where they are guaranteed never do yard work again, Gatestone has it all including an ideal location in the heart of Quarry Park.

With prices ranging from the high $400,000s to the mid $500,000s they are undeniably great value and likely won’t last long.  

Quarry Park has grown to be everything it was envisioned to be. “There really isn’t anything that compares to Quarry Park in Calgary — the amazing location nestled along the Bow River and nature reserve, the architectural character and variety of residential offerings, and the strong sense of community makes this one of the most desirable communities in the city,” Seidel says.

Situated on a historic quarry site adjacent to the Bow River, Quarry Park has 400 acres of reclaimed land that has been transformed into a thriving mixed-use community. The Market at Quarry Park features a broad spectrum of retail and dining offerings including a full service Co-op, Starbucks, Original Joe’s and many more. Once complete Quarry Park will be home to more than 2,200 residences, 140 acres of natural spaces and over 10 kilometres of paved paths connecting to the Bow River pathway system.

One of the greatest additions to the community has been the new Remington YMCA – a state-of-the-art, 94,000-square-foot facility with a fitness centre, running track, gym, 25-metre lap and leisure pool plus a 62-spot childcare facility. An additional 348 childcare spaces are also offered at the new Quarry Park Child Development Centre, operated by the YMCA just a few blocks away. There is also a new Calgary Public Library branch onsite, and plans to build a hotel in the future.

Buyers at The Gates, Champagne and now Gatestone are literally steps from these amazing facilities

“The YMCA was a very important piece to the community for us. The facility caters to the residents of Quarry Park and also the surrounding areas, making a long-term impact on their quality of life,” Seidel says.

But even with all this bustle going on, Quarry Park has not lost its idyllic calm. “Having the Bow River and nature reserve as our backyard gives us an unmatched quality that enriches the lives of all residents, and keeps us in tune with all the wonders this City has to offer,” Seidel adds.

Pre-sales for Gatestone will begin this summer. Interested parties can visit the Presentation Gallery to get their names on the Gatestone VIP waitlist, or register at QuarryPark.ca to learn more about future development in Quarry Park.
