What is likely the last opportunity to own a new townhome in Airdrie’s hit community of Canals Landing just opened their new sales centre and people are excited with what they see.

Genesis Builders Group opened their sales centre for their Newport townhomes, as the vision for this community is realized.

“We’re enjoying strong demand right now,” says PS Sidhu,President, Genesis Builders Group Inc. and Vice-President, Home Building of Genesis Land Development Corp. “Newport is in the heart of a well established community
that’s all but built out with all of the supporting amenities already available. It’s the last development  in the community.”

With only 85 units, Newport promises to bring a new level of style and sophistication to Airdrie’s hot townhome market. And with prices from the $190,000s it seems unlikely that they will last for long.

Newport’s affordability is beyond question, but with its wide range of townhome styles ranging from one-, two-, and three-storey models, it is also easily the one with the widest options.

“We have a home model that can fit a buyer’s lifestyle and budget,” says Genesis Builder Group marketing coordinator, Kelsey Orvis.

“Newport’s lifestyle choices can be seen in the many different floorplans we offer — from a one-bedroom apartment style home with no stairs and a bedroom big enough for a king sized bed; and several two-bedroom homes  and
three-bedroom corner homes that boasts one of the largest kitchens you’ll ever see in a townhome,” says Area Manger Barb McKinnon.

“There’s been a great response to our launch, people love the affordability, style and value Newport offers,” Orvis adds. “Also, It’s the last phase of the Canals, Airdrie’s premiere water based community. The development also features a central park where neighbors and friends can gather.”

Newport includes a one-bedroom 819-square-foot model; two-bedroom units from 992 to 1,315 square-feet; and three-bedroom townhomes from 1,362 to 1,373 square-feet. “We have townhomes that can fit any lifestyle and any budget,” Orvis adds.

McKinnon adds that Newport townhomes have the largest tandem garages in Airdrie at 40 feet. “There’s a very broad choice of floorplans, a large central park and Newport is situated within walking distance to three schools, soccer parks, shopping. We also have the ability to mix and match within our color palettes to really create a home that is truly your own.

Newport townhomes include the 819 square-foot Caden Townhome with one bedroom and one bathroom. They start from 819 square-feet, with nine-foot tall ceilings, a five-piece stainless steel package (including hood fan) and a
parking pad. “It’s a comprehensive package that first-time homebuyers will find incredible value in,” Orvis says.

In addition to this stacked lower level model, Genesis Builders Group is offering the two-storey stacked Peyton Townhome, a 992 square-foot model with two bedrooms, attached garage and one bathroom. Three-storey units include the two-bedroom/two-and-a-half bathrooms, double attached tandem garage Marley and Arron Townhomes. While the three-bedroom options include the Finley, Carson, Parker, and Addison, which is the largest at 1,373

Sustainability is also something Genesis focuses on, and every Newport townhome includes programmable thermostats, double glazed low E windows, a high efficiency furnace and natural gas hot water tank that work together to
reduce the operating cost of your home — lowering your monthly utility bills.

But besides the obvious stylish practicality and affordability of Newport, its biggest appeal is its location in Canals Landing. Call it a home court advantage, as this southwest Airdrie neighbourhood is also developed by Genesis’ development arm, Genesis Land Development Corp.

Canals Landing will be the final phase of Genesis’ hugely successful Canals community in Airdrie. Homes here have access to an impressive six-kilometre stretch of waterways, and Canals Landing residents can make the most of
this family-friendly neighbourhood and the wide range of recreational opportunities it offers.

“The community is all built out with all the waterway amenities, schools, parks and pathways already there for new residents to enjoy,” Sidhu says. “Buyers don’t have to put up with years of construction activity in their neighbourhood because everything here is already ready for them.”

Newport fits perfectly in this setting with its maritime-inspired architecture that features warm cedar detail, premium siding and colourful front doors come together to give these coastal inspired townhomes a timeless appeal not soon forgotten.

Canals Landing is a master-planned community by Genesis accessed off 1 Avenue N.W., Airdrie. “Because this is the last site that’s being developed, you’re not living in a construction zone,” says Sidhu. “It’s an established
community. There are two amazing schools right there, both within walking distance. The canals are all constructed, the playground is already there. It’s exceptional.”
