Fit in the city

Who wants to exert any more effort in this heat? But staying fit for life is the central theme in this issue of Condo Living, and what better time is there to work up a sweat than when the sun is out and shining? Fitness at home is what we discuss in our Shopping, On Trend and feature article this issue. We talk to experts and discover some of the best tips, equipment and design trends for keeping in shape in the comforts of your own home.

Speaking of keeping in shape, Calgary’s condo market seems to be in great health shape and headed for another growth year. The new mortgage rules that went into effect last month do threaten to put a damper on this growth — but not if CHBA Alberta has anything to say about it — check out what the province’s home builders association says about it in my Around Town column.

This wrinkle still has not affected the enthusiasm of buyers as they continue to flock to the numerous show suites in the city, and Innovations by Jayman’s newest townhome offering in Chaparral Valley is hoping to catch their attention as sales start for this picturesque bareland condo development in this serene southeast community near the river. The Edge by Streetside Development is also on the verge of beginning construction for the second building of their “cool factory” in Airdrie, as they tweak interior designs of suites to give them added functionality. Meanwhile, Highland Park by Stonecroft is banking on its central location in the northeast community of the same name to attract buyers. And it has, as 60 per cent of the 92-unit development have been snapped up. Wrapping things up, Carlisle Developments, continues its stirring success story with a string of enormously popular developments in both Calgary and Edmonton, which they talk about in our developer profile.

August may signal a time of change for the industry with the new mortgage rules, but you can trust Condo Living to keep you up to date on what effect these changes bring. Thanks for reading, and enjoy your summer!
