May 2017 | issue 209

Hello, everyone. I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you all to the latest addition to the Source Media Group team: Shylo Thompson. Shylo will be our social media expert, and she will lead our efforts to establish a stronger presence on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. and early indications seem she is already succeeding. There’s been much more activity across all our social media platforms since she started, and her first post — Arf in the Park, 10 best off-leash areas in Calgary — is a certified hit, our most “liked” post on Facebook! She’s back this issue with her favourite coffee shops. So follow us on-line as we explore the lighter side of the home building industry and life in general in Calgary.

Shylo and I just finished our biggest social media event yet, as we covered the SAM Awards on April 8. We tried out new forms of social media during this gala night — the industry’s Oscars, if you will. I’m sure we’ll be doing more of this sort of coverage for show home launches and other industry events, so follow our tweets, and check out our Facebook Live page to see what’s going on in Calgary’s condo and new home world.

Speaking of the SAMs, our cover feature this month is My Legacy Park by Brad Remington Homes, who has won several of the coveted awards over the years, and again this year. Even if they didn’t, their buyers will certainly always end up as winners with the sheer value they get from each suite in this exciting new development in Legacy.

We also have a couple of features on two of the best condo developments in the Beltline today — Park Point by Qualex Landmark, and Smith by Grosvenor — both of whom have bucked the slow economy and have gone a long way in spurring the growth and beautification of this historic inner-city community. We also have Radius by Bucci in Bridgeland, which has certainly benefitted from its central location in this trendy neighbourhood just outside downtown. The Loop by StreetSide in Evanston presents a new townhome design where neighbours don’t see into each other’s property by putting the townhomes in a literal loop.

I spoke to Steve LePan of Anthem United about their about-to-be-completed Drake Landing neighbourhood in Okotoks, which just opened a new townhome development – one of the last in this award-winning sustainable community. Okotoks has seen a surge in demand for new housing and this new ARRIVE at the Landing townhomes from Partners Development Group certainly answers the call.

Gardening season is here and David Crosson talks to experts in his STYLE column on how condo dwellers can partake of the activity, seems like container gardening is all the rage now. Our A Day In reporter, Shelley Boetcher, heads down to the Designer District in the Beltline to check out what secret treats it holds. And Darlene Casten talks to a local actress to find out what she loves best about life in her downtown condo in this month’s Lifestyle feature.

Award-season or not, trust Condo Living in bringing you the latest in what’s happening in Calgary’s vibrant market for new condos — and now you can do know all about it in our much-improved social media endeavours.
