In this issue:

Find out why Prestwick Place re-affirms builder Cardel Homes' dedication to excellence. Located in the southeast community of McKenzie Towne in the Village of Prestwick, the development offers a total of 299 suites: 23 townhomes and 276 apartment-style condos in a neighbourhood that features tree-lined streets. Its architecture, enhanced by wrought iron railings and natural stone, is exquisite.

Look up, way up, at arriVa, the tallest residential building in Alberta. The 44-storey, 219-unit highrise will feature a lobby with a 20-foot high ceiling, glass exteriors and furniture imported directly from Italy. The units themselves range in size from 904 to 3,569 square feet. The higher up you go in the skyscraper, the fewer the suites per floor, creating added square footage per unit.

Get a blast from the past at Aquadale. Nestled between downtown Calgary and the Elbow River, the unique, inspiring architecture of Mission makes for a trendy village feel. Aquadale sits in the middle of the village, a 50's-vintage building that has been restored to celebrate its past while simultaneously renovated to appeal to today's condo buyers. It's worth a look.

Also in the issue, head to the Beltline's Swedish-inspired Oslo towers. Catch a glimpse of the Brighton future in affordable, apartment-style condos by Hawthorne. And shop for the home, spirit and taste buds in southwest Calgary's famous Marda Loop.

Learn how the right area rug brings magic to a room. Turn the lens to pared fitness equipment with some big potential and sit down with a condo owner who turned her digs into Yoga Central.

And finally, Environics Research Group says "one-in-four Canadians qualify as officially sleep-deprived." Our story on what's new with mattresses offers tips for a better sleep.
