When the stars align and there’s a chance to take part in a new generation of growth and possibility, Homes by Avi is quick to get on board. The multi-awarded builder has that chance again in Belmont on the southern tip of Calgary, where a new story begins for a community that is already attracting families and buyers from all stages of life.

The perfect place for turning over a new leaf or beginning a new phase, Belmont is a 280-acre master-planned community by Anthem United that extends far beyond the front door thanks to its scenic natural landscapes, ample amenities and recreation options.

As one of Alberta’s leading and award-winning home builders for over 40 years, Homes by Avi is excited to launch the first multi-family development in this young, up-and-coming community, as Belmont Street Towns fits right in the community that’s all about choices.

“After the grand opening of our show homes back in November, sales are going very well and we’re already over 25 per cent sold of what we’ve released,” Deborah Dahbour, Area Sales Manager with Homes by Avi, tells Condo Living.

The theme in Belmont is to plant dreams and watch them grow, and Homes by Avi is making sure each piece of the puzzle fits into this equation. Altogether there are 54 Street Town units up for grabs and new homeowners have already started moving in before Christmas. As more homes become
available, new homeowners can look forward to moving in throughout the year in the spring, summer and fall.

“Belmont is a smaller more intimate community with a lower density feel, wider streets, and beautifully landscaped traffic circles and boulevards” describes Dahbour. “With such a popular new community, it’s always a great idea to get in early while the opportunity lasts and there are tons of choices.”

She goes on to mention how the street towns are fee-simple, meaning no condo fees, and are basically single-family attached homes with nine-foot high main floor ceilings and a private fenced in and landscaped backyard. “People love the thought that goes into these floorplans, how open and spacious the
rooms are, and the opportunity to easily choose their interior selections on site, plus no condo fees whatsoever.”

Buyers can choose between five different floorplans ranging in size from 1,200 to 1,450 square-feet with prices starting from $330,000 including GST. Dahbour describes that two of the most popular floorplans are the Benedict and the Bruno. “These three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath floorplans feature a bright open main floor, spacious and smartly designed kitchen, upstairs laundry and showcase the most popular upgrades.”

Along with premium standards including six different cabinet choices, buyers can choose their flooring, appliances, lighting and countertop upgrade options, optional blinds, basement development and garage. “Our sales centre discovery boards display all the standards plus upgrade options, so our customers can conveniently do all their personalized interior selections right here in Belmont,” Dahbour says.

Situated south of Silverado on Sheriff King Street, Belmont is the first new community with untapped potential just west of Macleod Trail on 210th Avenue. An ideal location in this part of the city, residents can access every essential activity and amenity imaginable. Just minutes away there are major grocery stores, the Somerset/Bridlewood LRT station, Sirocco Golf Club, Cardel Rec South, Landmark Cinemas, Shawnessy Village and the South Health Campus.

Aside from the day-to-day necessities, Belmont has the backdrop to create fond memories for family-friendly outings at places like Spruce Meadows, Granary Road and Fish Creek Park. As the community grows, it’s clear the spotlight is only going to shine even brighter on this area especially with even more convenient amenities on the way. Dahbour mentions it’s incredible how much there will be in and around Belmont.

“There are plans for a future LRT stop 500 metres from the community and designated areas for schools, plus a huge new playground should be completed and ready by this spring,” she says. “Until there’s shopping in the immediate area, Silverado, Legacy and Shawnessy has great shopping options and
the City of Calgary will be opening a new recreation centre in Belmont, too.”

Affordability, accessibility and privacy are three major draws to the area and are especially popular with empty nesters or downsizers, and young professionals or new families looking to get their foot into the housing market. Dahbour says it’s because of elements like the private fenced backyard combined with no condo fees and a more convenient square footage that people are wanting to move here and begin a new chapter.

“Our attention to detail combined with floorplans designed for everyday life are what sets us apart,” she adds. “Quality craftsmanship, unique exterior elevations and a range of product lines gives us a competitive edge in today’s market.”
