Our Condoscapes columnist, Richard White, is a step ahead of me at all times, especially in getting back to physical activity. I don’t think he really has stopped, and his Everyday Tourist blog takes us on his “flaneur-ing” or strolling jaunts around the city and beyond. This issue, he writes a special Condoscapes Q&A feature for us on his chat with Tom Thivener Calgary’s Cycling Co-ordinator. They talk about the growth of the city’s biking culture — and not just in the inner city. Bike lanes are some of the most ubiquitous amenities in many of the new communities in the suburbs too. The feature appearing in this issue is a shortened version, the entire conversation can be seen in our website

Speaking of amenities, our cover feature on StreetSide Developments’ The Loop in Evanston has these in spades. Not only is it located in an almost built-out community where tons of commercial, entertainment and everyday conveniences already abound, but they are also building their own unique park where their singular line of three-story townhomes “loop” around. They just opened a bunch of new show homes, so do yourself a favour and check those out to see the relaxed lifestyle they offer.

Spring is the busiest time for the industry and we do our level best to keep readers informed of what’s going on. April sees us featuring Partners’ new ARRIVE at Redstone Way with their two-storey townhomes that started pre-sales. We have FRAM + Slokker’s Verve, which just held their topping off ceremony and is approaching sold out status. Then there’s Morrison Multi-Family’s new Q Condominiums in Sage Hill Quarter that’s smack in the middle of a future commercial centre. Trico’s Legacy Commons townhomes has the same idea with its closeness to the future Legacy Village commercial centre. Shane Homes’ Saratoga in Skyview Ranch Carlisle’s Skyview Landing both bring to focus the affordability and value of condos in this bustling northeast community.

Winter’s behind us, thankfully, and spring (such as it is in Calgary) brings us the promise of warm weather and growth. Go out there and check out these new condo developments. We just might bump into each other.
