October 2018 | Issue 226

Part of the job is being invited to parties and events celebrating the opening of some of Calgary’s newest high-rise condos. I’ve been lucky enough to get a taste of the high life in some of these tall monuments to Calgary’s new urban lifestyle like Park Point by Qualex-Landmark in the Beltline, The Guardian in Victoria Park by Hon Development (featured inside), Verve by FRAM Slokker in East Village (you’ll hear more about them here next month), and more recently at Avenue West End by Grosvenor.

This last one we feature in this issue in our Designer Series and we got the chance to catch up with interior design celebrity and our friend, Calgary’s own Amanda Hamilton. She toured us through the two-storey penthouse at the top of this 23-storey tower just outside the downtown core, and man, do I wish I can afford it’s $2.4 million price tag. You’d be surprised though at the design choices Amanda used to perfect the look of this lavish aerie with its 2,000-square-foot patio; not all of them are overly expensive as you may expect. There’s even some that we can use in our own home, be it ever so humble. Getting these design tips is ultimately why we do the Designer Series, that and because it gives us a chance to shine a light on our local interior design talents and share their thoughts on their processes.

Our cover feature, Granite by Jayman BUILT, is a likely candidate for our next Designer Series feature too, with its sexy suburban vibe. Granite in the northeast community of Redstone is turning a lot of heads not just for its interior design work but for its innovative stacked townhome plans. Find out more inside.

We always seek to give our readers the most extensive coverage on what’s available out there, and we’ve got a great representation of inner-city and suburban townhomes and condos this month.  Including some new ones, like Aldo Rossi’s Sage Hill Garden and Tuscan Rise from the Rockford Group. There’s also Gatestone by Remington Development in Quarry Park and Q at Sage Hill Quarter by Morrison Homes Multi-Family. 

So, if you’re looking for a new home, a new place to live, or a new style for your existing abode, just follow us. We’re your best resources in finding out the best new opportunities to live in your new home.
