May 2018 | issue 221

Spring 2018 will be remembered for a lot of things, the icky weather for sure, but also for the renewed zest in Calgary’s home building sector. Construction starts are up, new communities are sprouting in the north and the south, and according to Statistics Canada, investments for new housing construction were up 14.7 per cent to $644.6 million in January.

Our cover feature is one of the latest developments contributing to the surge, as Brad Remington Homes launches Sage Hill Park in the northwest. This is Brad Remington Homes’ first venture in north Calgary and they promise to bring the same affordably stylish homes that has made them such a hit in the south with their My Legacy Park and Copperfield Park condos.

Our community profile on Mattamy Homes’ latest development of Yorkville signals the start of new communities in south Calgary, as well. The north had been getting the lion’s share of new communities with Carrington and Livingston to name a few, now it’s the south’s turn to get into the action with Yorkville and Belmont (you can read about the latter in the May issue of our sister publication New Home Living).

But if it’s condos and townhomes you need, we’ve got a full slate of up-and-comers and established developments that are worthy of your attention. In this issue, we have The Windsor, the first mixed use condo development to go up on the corner of Elbow Drive and 50th Avenue S.W. Then there’s Remington Developments’ latest in Quarry Park: the ultra exclusive Gatestone townhomes and Calais Villas that will soon follow.

Avalon Master Builders’ ZEN Urban District puts the spotlight on Seton. Sanderson Ridge is perfect for the downsizer set with its alluring in-house amenities. While Holland Park by Excel Homes is attracting buyers with its European flavoured design.

Congratulations are also in order to the winners of the first BILD Calgary Region Awards (formerly SAM Awards). Shane Homes is the big winner for the condo side of things, taking home its first Multi-Family Builder of the Year Award. Calbridge Homes took home Builder of the Year. You can find a partial list in this issue. For the full list of winners go to Congrats again to all the winners and finalists.
