Editor's Message - Change is good

This September, not only the weather is changing. Source Media Group — which publishes Condo Living and New Home Living in Calgary, to name a few — has changed addresses, again, and we are now located at our new offices on Macleod Trail, next door to Chinook Mall. If anyone understands about looking for a new home, it’s us.

But, with the trauma of THE MOVE behind us, we can move forward to bigger and better things ahead as we go ‘back to the future’ with a re-vitalized focus on our core value to both readers and advertisers alike: to produce the best of new home and condominium magazines in the city — and deliver them to the most people. We are increasing the number of pages devoted to our bread-and-butter condo profile articles to four a month, with lots of photos, even as we renew our commitment in offering the best design and décor and shopping tips in town. Not to mention our on-going focus on sustainability with our Going Green column from L. Sara Bysterveld. Of course, we’ll always try to keep on top of happenings in the industry with relevant news and events features.

We start things off with a bang this September with our clutch of condo reviews, including our cover feature for the month: Streetside Developments’ up-and-coming Evanston Square project that will be the most ambitious one yet from the respected developer and will offer its widest range of multi-family options in the booming north-central community.

Mission First from Niklas Group is another new development that is getting plenty of buzz for ultra-luxury inner city multi-family living. Avalon Master Builder is strengthening their lock on becoming Calgary’s greenest developer with ZEN Aspen Hills which aims to be the city’s first LEED for Home-rated development. Meanwhile, Condo Living Associate Publisher Jim Zang looks west and gives us a sneak a peek at the Landings at Cougar Ridge, which shows how Statesman Corporation — developers of Calgary’s first retirement villa community — is still on top of its game with this sequel.

We also do our bit to drum up the excitement for the Calgary Home + Interior Design Show, which has become the single largest event of it’s kind in Southern Alberta and is even bigger this year, as home renovation celebrity Ty Pennington makes his only Canadian appearance this year at the show. Our own regular contributors, Aly Velji and Rosalyn Lazaruk, will be there as well in their Dining by Design feature sponsored by Calgary Condo Living and New Home Living magazines.

September does signify a change in seasons, and for us at Source Media Group — change is good!
