Strength in Unity

Unity brings connected lifestyle in Seton

The bustling young community of Seton in the southeast seems to have everything needed for a modern, active, recreationally-centred lifestyle, and Trico Homes completes the setting with Unity, its line of uniquely designed, affordable townhomes.

Seton was always meant to be “Downtown South” bringing a modern, connected lifestyle to Calgary’s southern suburbs and Unity is adding an important ingredient to the mix by bringing affordable, attached garage townhomes. “We’re the only multi-family development in

Seton that can offer space to park up to three cars,” says area manager Justine Nguyen.

“We have attached garage tandem models that have an option for a 20-foot driveway for a third car,” she explains. “Even if you have just one car, it still provides owners a lot of extra storage space and you have extra parking space for their visitors.”

Unity will have 107 three-level townhomes on completion, and they are off to a fantastic start as the first phase is all but sold out. “We are opening two new show homes on November 17 that will expertly showcase exactly what kind of lifestyle we can provide here,” Nguyen says.

It does present the perfect opportunity for first-time homebuyers to live in what is destined to be a world-class community. With homes starting from $305,000, including GST, Unity is class, style and affordability all rolled into one.

“Unity was created for people who want to live life to the fullest, to be connected, and to embrace what matters most. In Unity, we value authenticity, balance, community and family,” Nguyen says.

“We are attracting a lot of people who have jobs in the community itself, and not just at the (South Health Campus) hospital. Seton is already turning into a major employment hub and Unity gives these workers the opportunity to live affordably near where they work,” she

The Heroes program offered by Brookfield Residential — Seton’s developer — also has helped attract buyers to the community. The program gives teachers, police, fire, military, EMS and Alberta Health Care workers a $1,000 discount in home purchases in the community.

“People would rather spend the money they can save from commuting and parking downtown on a home near where they work, and Unity is the perfect opportunity for them,” Nguyen tells Condo Living.

Trico’s Flexible Down Payment Program is also a key factor in attracting buyers here, she says.

There are three main floor plans offered in Unity ranging from 1,175 to 1,185-square-feet. Two- and three-bedroom models are available.

“It’s maintenance-free living at its best, so you can spend more time doing what you love. Every home includes the features that matter most and some that just make your life a little more comfortable,” she says.

These include nine-foot ceilings on main level, knockdown ceiling on all levels, luxury vinyl plank flooring in main entry and throughout the main level, one-inch Venetian blinds window package, stainless steel appliances, stone countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and
above-code, high-performance soundproofing.

“Every Unity model comes with an attached two car (tandem) garage, two-and-a-half baths, a private balcony, patio and standard specifications and appliances that you would normally expect to pay extra for,” she adds.

“We’re also a pet-friendly development with a private, central greenspace where you can walk your four-legged friends and meet your neighbours.”

Seton also focuses on active living and accessibility, it will have, after all, one of the largest YMCA rec centres in Canada and it’s slated to open early next year. There will be a future LRT station in the community, the new VIP Cineplex cinemas are a hit with discerning movie
buffs, and the high school is also open making it ever easier for families to fall in love with the community.

“The community is designed with the urban adventurer in mind. Whether that means strolling to one of the many restaurants to gather with friends, unwinding in the 16-acre Seton Central Park, or shopping at local boutiques, urban convenience is at the heart of it all. And
with Unity, living in amidst all these is quite affordable,” Nguyen says.
