In this issue:

"We wanted to create a landmark building for the city that would be a classic design and something that would stand the test of time," says Gerry Mendyk, president of Arcus Developments, who built the Astoria on Tenth Grand Tower Residences.

The project presents Manhattan-style luxury and lifestyle, with several nods to the art deco legend, including a six-foot, custom, crystal chandelier in the lobby.

Overlooking the Calgary skyline from across the Bow River, the community of Renfrew has undergone a major facelift recently, leaving the bad behind and bringing in new faces and places. One condo development in particular, The Adora by Sokol Developments Inc., is emerging like a diamond in the rough. This luxury condo development features homes ranging in price from $290,000 to $650,000.

Also in this issue: Ginger Park on the west side, Calgary Ghost Tours, choosing window dressings, reducing energy use, shopping for barbecues and more. Enjoy!
