January 2018 | issue 217

Wow! Is it just me, or did 2017 seem to just pass by in a blur? Perhaps it’s just my own perception as I get older that the sands of time seem to run a little faster as it gets past the midway point of the hourglass. At any rate, I am older — we all are — but as I look back on the year that was; it makes me still hopeful for the next.

We’ve seen a lot of new condo developments get off the ground in 2017; Brad Remington Homes announced their latest endeavour — and their first in north Calgary — Sage Hill Park. Even as the multi-awarded developer launched part two of their ever-popular My Legacy Park complex in the south. Then there’s Westman Village that just unveiled their jaw-dropping Village Centre amenity in this resort-like development fronting Mahogany Lake. And just this weekend, Condo Living learned of Avi Urban’s newest undertaking: August, a mixed-use project that will have a retail base and residential condos on top of it. That one is going to be in the popular University District community where Homes by Avi has also partnered with the Le Germain to build an ALT Hotel, that’s already their second in the city. 2018 looks promising, indeed.

Trico Homes is forging new ground as well with a multitude of new projects launching in 2018, but in our cover feature for this issue, we talk about one of their current hit: Verona townhomes. Those three-level townhomes in the northwest — with some backing onto a natural ravine area — are hot, especially among single professionals and couples, although young families have been buying too.

Then there is Westman Village from Jayman BUILT that I was talking about earlier. Condo Living was invited to the party launching their phenomenal Village Centre facility and it just has to be seen to be believed. You can make an appointment to visit; it’s well worth the time.

Fish Creek Park is another development that has been a big hit in 2017, and this “last great address in Fish Creek” has made the most of its outstanding location on the edge of the city’s largest urban park. They offer both townhomes and condos, but the townhomes are going exceptionally fast.

Regatta by Brookfield Residential that has been making waves in Auburn Bay as one of the final new condo opportunities left in the community, which is close to build out. Buyers have been responding to its appeal as one of the most affordable homes that allows them to own in this award-winning southeast lake community.

We also cover the Calgary Renovation show this month, and we’re just as excited to see what’s in store at the annual event that will be held at the Stampede Grounds from January 12 – 14. We spoke to Sarah Richardson, one of their headliners, to see what to expect at her presentations on the main stage.

Most of the news we cover here are also available on our website Check it out and see what else is going on in the world of new homes and condos.

I hope that, like us, you’re excited to see what 2018 have in store. Join us for the ride; it’s going to be a lot of fun.
