Graywood Developments had no doubt that their first venture in Calgary would be a success and Fish Creek Exchange has not disappointed. This collection of townhomes and apartment-style condos on the edge of Fish Creek Park is enjoying robust sales, and the Toronto-based developer is so impressed that they are gearing up the launch of a follow-up development this spring.

Patrick Briscoe, Vice President, Development project management for Graywood Developments, tells Condo Living that sales have been strong at Fish Creek Exchange as buyers love the lifestyle it affords living next to Calgary’s largest urban park and the second largest urban park in Canada.

“Building 1 will soon be sold out and we are now over 60 per cent sold in Building 2. We’ve launched our final two blocks of townhomes in Site 1, which will be the last chance to buy with quick possessions. Overall, the site is 75 per cent sold,”
Briscoe tells Condo Living.

He says the success isn’t a surprise as buyers are excited about owning in the “last great Fish Creek address” and first possessions will start this spring.

“We have seen many people from the surrounding communities in the southwest. Our purchasers love the area and amenities that they have grown accustomed to and therefore do not want to leave the conveniences around Fish Creek Park.”

Fish Creek Exchange is a 24-acre multi-family development located just off James Mckevitt Road and Macleod Trail S.W. Site 1 consists of two five-storey wood frame buildings with 100 apartment-style condos and 42 townhomes. Apartment
suites range in size from 600 – 1,205 square-feet. They start from $230,900 including GST.

Townhomes are 16- to 25-foot models with two or three bedrooms starting at 1,235 square-feet. There are three models with a variety of layout options, design selections, and upgrades to choose from. These are double garage models starting
from $417,900, including GST.

The response has been clear from buyers, Fish Creek Exchange’s combination of established neighbourhood conveniences and the quietude of natural park settings has been a resounding success. So much so that the Graywood team has been
hard at work preparing for the second phase of condos and townhomes as demand surges.

“The biggest amenity is Fish Creek Park. Much of the recreation draw is to the park for hiking, biking, nature walks… those types of activities,” says Briscoe.

But easy transportation access is a close second when it comes to the location’s appeal, as it’s proximity to everyday amenities like schools, shops, groceries, and entertainment provides ease to everyday life.

Nestled in a residential community, surrounded by single-family homes, Fish Creek Exchange is uniquely situated to boast both a quiet and peaceful corner of the city while enjoying the convenience of Fish Creek Lacombe C-Train Station and
Macleod Trail just steps away. It’s close to Macleod Trail for access but far enough away that you’re not bothered by traffic noise,” says Briscoe.

He adds that since the community surrounding Shawnee Slopes has been there for 30 – 40 years, residents will benefit from living in a well-established community. “All of the essentials like schools and grocery stores are already here,” he adds.

Fish Creek Exchange’s award-winning design is encapsulated in the two show suites available to view in their Presentation Centre at 99 Shawnee Common S.W.

“Fish Creek Exchange has exceeded our expectations, sales have been very strong and traffic to the Fish Creek Exchange project has been steady since its launch.  We believe that having proven locations for multi-family sites that are close to
transit with high value amenities like Fish Creek Park available and providing top quality homes will always meet the needs of any purchaser.”

This success has prompted Graywood Developments to greenlight its next project: The Theodore in Kensington.

“Speaking of sites with great access to amenities, we are currently gearing up for an anticipated spring launch of The Theodore this year,” Briscoe says. “The building will be apartment condos in Kensington steps away from the
Kensington/Sunnyside LRT station. We are extremely excited about the launch and feel like we are providing one of the best locations in the community for discerning purchasers.
