It's April, traditionally one of the most popular times of the year to shop for a new home.

The West Coast meets Little Italy in Lower Crescent Heights at The Rialto. It's a 15-unit condominium that has been completely restructured inside and out. Suites start at $319,000 and each is modelled a little differently.

Homesteads of Sunset Ridge is a designer community by CalBridge located 20 minutes west of Calgary. Three different housing options -- The Mavericks, The Rancheros and The Village -- offer panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. The development will be home to more than 3,000 families when it is complete.

"People are attracted to Robson's desirable southwest location," says Robson sales consultant Nan Robinson, referring to the new community of Summit of Montreauz, located along 85 Street S.W., just south of 17th Avenue. Condos range in size from 670 to 1022 square feet.

Europeans have valued green roofs for years. Here in Calgary, new apartment- and townhome-style condo buyers are beginning to expect a roof top garden or turf roof, a sanctuary where they can get away from it all up on the roof. Our features, The Grass is Greener and Why Turf is Tops introduce you to the companies around town that have worked their way green roof top developments.
