StreetSide Style

From chic inner-city towns to stylish condos and villas, StreetSide has it covered

In it’s nearly three decades of building multi-family homes in Calgary, StreetSide Developments certainly has developed a feel for the needs and wants of the Calgary market. Whether it’s sleek apartment-style condos, multifunctional townhomes and villas, or even the popular no-condo-fee street towns, StreetSide has something for everyone in any part of the city.

And wait ‘til you hear what more they have in store.

The multi-family home building division of Qualico has nine on-going and soon-to-launch developments in all four sectors of Calgary. Each reflect the style and sensibilities of the particular demographic they cater to, but all come with the same assurance of quality that is the hallmark of any StreetSide build.

“Among the many wonderful qualities of StreetSide is the fact that we offer a wide variety of home-styles in all quadrants of Calgary and cater to each of the main segments of the market exceptionally well,” says Ian Macdonald, Director of Marketing and Sales at StreetSide.

Catering to as wide a set of clientele as StreetSide does, they are still able to design multi-family homes that fit their wants and needs.

“Whether it’s Logan, a young mechanic, purchasing his first townhome in The Loop in Evanston; or Amy and Benny, and their dog Wei Wei, who purchased their first no-condo fee townhome in the Townes of Redstone; or Brian and Diana, an active couple, who just bought their new Villa in Silverado and are excited to ‘right-size’ their home, we are proud to deliver a quality home to each category of purchaser in Calgary.”

The Loop in Evanston (traditional townhomes), and the Townes of Redstone (no-condo-fee street towns) offer first-time homebuyers and downsizers and even young families a terrific option in the north.

Killarney Townes shows off fantastic inner-city townhome living; Vivace at West 85th features trendy apartment-style condos in the heart of an amenity-rich commercial development in the southwest; Origins at Cranston has affordable move-in ready condos in the southeast; the timeless, luxurious Hunter House is down to its final townhomes and the much anticipated, maintenance-free Villas of Silverado, also in the southwest.

Coming this fall are the Villas of Silverado, which will have a grand opening of their bungalow villa show homes, and the launch of Emberpark townhomes in one of the most anticipated locations in the northeast community of Redstone. And in 2019, StreetSide will also have a presence in the emerging south community of Belmont with their new townhomes.

“We are very pleased with the pick-up in the market mid-way through 2018 as our StreetSide purchasers are able to secure financing and navigate through the new mortgage rules with the help from our team of mortgage
experts,” Macdonald says. “We have also introduced new on-trend and move-in ready condos, townhomes and villas which our new StreetSide purchasers are thrilled about.”

With more townhome choices down the line — and starting prices holding in the $200,000s, Macdonald has a case for continued optimism.

“We are very excited for our upcoming townhome community in Redstone called Emberpark, starting in the $200,000s plus GST; and our townhomes in Belmont, starting in the $290,000s coming in 2019.”

Meanwhile, the Loop in Evanston continues to win hearts and minds with its unique Salt Box design and its themed central parks.

The Loop in Evanston has just launched the second phase of this popular development with row townhomes that start from the $290,000s.

The Loop certainly has affordability, functionality and style, says Area Manager Jared Kulawik. But there’s a lot more to it.

The Loop is being built all the way around a park in this established northwest community of Evanston (a Qualico community). Each of its four phases will be facing a portion of the park that is uniquely designed with specific
Alberta nature themes: Rocky Mountain, Foothills, Parkland, and Grassland.

“What we want to emphasize with The Loop is that the outside areas are just as important as the inside of the homes, it’s a total package,” Macdonald says. “We designed The Loop so that if you are sitting out on your patio,
you’re looking out into nice lush landscaping with big hills, and not into your neighbours’ house,” he adds.

Phase 2 will have 62 homes. They include the Amaranth, the Carmine and the Rosewood floor plans. “Based on purchasers’ feedback we made great design improvements to give them a fresh look, but they are largely the same
from what was offered in phase one,” says area manager Jared Kulawik.

The Carmine layout is offered from 1,267 to 1,333 square-feet in size, with either two or three-bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Slightly larger than the Amaranth, there are some key differences that set the Carmine
layout apart, such as two car parking and models including a flex space between the two bedrooms, such as shown in one of the new show homes.

The Loop’s largest floor plan, the Rosewood which was just nominated for best townhome between $350k and $500k for the 2018 BILD Alberta Awards, comes in sizes ranging from 1,485 to 1,511 square-feet, with three-

bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Spacious is the key word to describe these two options, with large bedrooms, as well as generous kitchens with the choice of either an island in the centre or perhaps an open kitchen with tons of counter space.

“Clients are purchasing here at the Loop because we have on-trend floor plans that work. The open plan concept living is a real winner. Not to mention the convenience of a spacious garage,” Kulawik adds.

That just goes to show the care that StreetSide brings to every development. “We care about quality, lasting value and always doing the right thing. Backed by Qualico with over 65 years in the home building industry, we have the experience, dedication and passion to deliver an exceptional home and community to you and your family,” Macdonald says.
