November 2008 | Issue 107

In this issue:

Bring a lunch as we tour an array of show suites in this issue.

We travel to Kimcorp's Arcadia Commons in Turner Valley where there's hiking, fishing, backpacking and golf for young families, first time buyers, empty nesters and professionals who want to get away from the busy city life.

We show you Ginger Park by Streetside on the west side of town. Four-storey split townhomes offer proximity to Highway 8 and Old Banff Coach Road (easy access to the mountains), extra space and less maintenance.

Up in the northwest, meanwhile, Rocky Ridge's Swan Landing delivers stunning mountain views on clear days from 124 contemporary, apartment-style condos (725 to 1,050 square feet) that start at $259,000.

Down in the Bow River valley below the Foothills Medical Centre, you'll find Parkdale, a mature, riverside neighborhood offering centrality, character and peace and quiet. Here you'll find The Riverton by Slokker Canada (a European developer), a three-storey, 26-unit building with large windows, nine-foot ceilings, a common rooftop patio and spacious floor plans near the Bow River pathway.

Also in this issue, we check out the historical Anderson in Lower Mount Royal and we get a private showing from a couple who've converted to condo life and are raising their young son with an Elbow River view in the community of Mission.
