November 2018 | issue 227

Looking outside the window of my tiny office in a southeast industrial sector of town, fall doesn’t look all that inspiring. It’s snowing, leaves are off the branches and lying listlessly on the ground, a blustery wind is blowing intermittently — it’s a mid-February scene and it’s not even Halloween as I write this. Life in Calgary, I guess.

But the fact remains, fall is still my favourite season. True, we don’t get a lot of it here in this side of the Rockies, but I love the quiet chill of the mornings and the mid-afternoon light around the pond when I take the dog for a walk. (I know, I’m a boring old, suburbanite.) The hectic pace of show home launches in the season is also another thing that makes this a time worth celebrating. The highly-anticipated Westman Village development by Jayman BUILT was among those recent launches (see the story inside), Streetside Developments also has new townhomes and villas, the much-talked-about The Fifth opened its presentation centre, as has Battistella’s new Nude. We talk more about all of those in my Around Town news column.

This fall has been just as remarkable for Brad Remington Homes, our cover feature this issue, as they launched sales for the second building of the hit Sage Hill Park condos. Just like before, people camped out for days outside their sales centre in Sage Meadows in the northwest to get their pick.

Capella by Brookfield Residential is also launching in the thriving new community of University District, and we have a feature for each inside.

Shane Homes’ Mark 101, Avenue West End and Avi Urban round out the condo profiles this issue. We also have RNDSQR’s presentation centre featured in this month’s Designer Series and their forward-thinking, sustainable, community-centred development is capturing hearts and minds.

Did I mention it’s snowing? Well, we have the Focus On photo feature on snow style inside, and there’s an In The City write-up by Brandi Holmes on sled spots. While Christina Loc’s Style column talks about design trends for the kitchen.

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 and every month.

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.
