September 2018 | Issue 225

When I started in this job some 10 years ago now (I know, I’m a lifer) Auburn Bay and Mahogany Lake were a little more than deep holes in the ground in the city’s south. But now these spectacular and avidly popular new lake communities have become complete neighbourhoods living up to their vision, and more. Back in 2008, the city’s southern border ended in Silverado, and to the north, today’s new communities of Livingston and Carrington were nothing more than prairie grasslands. Now, we have Yorkville and Belmont bringing us further south and new communities of East Stoney, Glacier Ridge and more now approved for further development in the north.

My friends and family will sometimes look at me perplexed and ask where new communities are. (“Carrington, where’s that?” one of my recent conversations with a buddy went.) They’re about to get more perplexed after City Council voted to allow 14 new suburban communities to be built in the coming years.  Those include the massive developments of Glacier Ridge in the north, Providence, Rangeview and South Shepard in the south. According to news reports, these new communities could add more than 18,000 single-family homes and as much as 9,000 multi-family homes.

With so much going on, Source Media Group is launching New Community Guide in the coming months to inform readers of these new places to live, whether they’re established, on their way to being established or are just coming down the pipeline. I’ve always seen Condo Living and New Home Living as chronicles of Calgary’s growth, this new magazine will make it doubly so.

But that’s for the future. Right now, we still have plenty of growth happening, more so with our cover feature StreetSide Developments and we talk about all the townhomes, condos and no-condo-fee street towns they offer inside. All of our condo profiles this moth are for new developments that were only released less than a year ago – most within the last few month, like Nude by Battistella, and The Fifth by TAK Developments, and Annex by Minto. Find out more inside. Wentworth Pointe takes advantage of their location in 85th. Newport by Genesis is the last chance the established Canals community in Airdrie, while Partners new Arrive at Sage Meadows can be seen as pioneers in a newer neighbourhood.

But through these changes, Condo Living and New Home Living remain your best resources in finding out the best new opportunities to live in your new home.
