The price is right

Ember Park offers affordability advantage

The popular community of Redstone boasts a wide range of homes, so many that most can find one that will fit their lifestyles. But when it comes to affordability, nothing can beat StreetSide Development’s new Ember Park townhomes.

Ember Park starts from the $230,000s and StreetSide Development area manager, JC Charles, says there is nothing else in the city that can match their price advantage.

“Ember Park has the best priced two- and three-storey park townhomes in Calgary. But even at that low price, people still are able to get a stylish, functional and practical home in an already-flourishing community.”

With ample living space for family and friends to visit, Ember Park townhomes offer the space that is full of friends, family and memories to come. With the optional lower level development buyers can add additional living space that allows for more of your family to live
under one roof.

There are two floor plans to choose from ranging from 1,003 to 1,220 square-feet. The Elm has a single-car garage and an apron big enough for a second vehicle. The Oak has 467 square-feet for an optional lower level development.

Both floor plans have several options, including one with a side entry and larger patio space.

A 1,003-square-foot Oak model that starts at the lowest price of $237,306 will still get the buyer a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath three-storey townhome. And with its optional lower level development, it certainly takes into account future growth for the buyer.

“Even at such an affordable price, StreetSide is still able to offer buyers a home that suits their wants and needs. Buyers still get the great finishes that StreetSide is known for and a functional, practical design that allows for the future growth of the family,” Charles adds.

Ember Park is most appealing to the first-time homebuyer who will find in it the perfect home to get out of the rental rut and start building equity.

Charles says as far as finishes go StreetSide covers the essentials without being basic. “There is a pride of homeownership that goes with every townhome, and our standard features go a long way in giving buyers this feeling.”

Standard interior features in Ember Park include soft close cabinets and drawers, high-arc kitchen faucet with pull-down sprayer, stainless steel kitchen appliance package and spacious eating bar and walk-in pantry. Stylish laminate flooring on the main level as well as
nine-foot ceilings come as part of the package.

There are 74 two- and three-storey townhomes in Ember Park with first possessions slated for July.

The strength and appeal of the entire Redstone community, however, lies in its ability to offer homes that will fit any lifestyle. If buyers are looking for more living space, StreetSide also has this covered with their no-condo-fee Redstone Towns street towns.

Redstone Towns offer a single-family lifestyle with multi-family affordability. A detached garage is another feature that sets the Redstone Towns apart. Two-bedroom homes feature a single-detached garage, while three-bedroom homes get a double. “Redstone Towns offers everything that a single-family home can offer at a much more affordable price.”  The Redstone Towns start from the $300,000s.

Whether choosing either Ember Park or Redstone Towns, buyers will still benefit from living in this vibrant northeast community. “We have wider streets here compared to other communities in the area, families are often out walking and enjoying the various amenities” he points out.

Redstone by Qualico Communities is already thriving and its location in the heart of the New North is its lasting advantage.

With easy access to a variety of main thoroughfares, including Deerfoot Trail, Metis Trail and Stoney Trail, accessibility is never a problem. Proximity to employment hubs, including the airport and several nearby hospitals, offers convenience.

“You’re very close to CrossIron Mills, the Calgary International Airport, and a transit system that is already established in the community of Redstone,” Charles says. “This community is already a well-established, family-friendly community.”
