February 2019 | issue 230

Condo Living has always been all about finding new multi-family home-owning opportunities for our readers. As those opportunities continue to grow, we strive to grow along with it, and to this end, let me introduce the newest Source Media publication: Townsizing.

This new quarterly book will take a look at all the home-owning options in communities around Calgary, including Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks, Chestermere, Strathmore, Canmore and all stops in between. All
these small towns have enjoyed exponential growth and continue to do so, especially as land costs here for the most part are much lower compared to Calgary’s. You can get more home for much less is the
constant refrain, sometimes as much as $30,000 to $40,000 less.

The best thing is these small towns aren’t the little rural communities most city folks picture anymore, almost all of them have the big city amenities that make life easier, yet many still maintain the quaint
tight-knit community feel that many moving there look for.

Townsizing editor Brandi Holmes will shine a light on all aspects of life as it pertains to small town living. The initial issue (out February 14) will focus on Airdrie and everything that has made Calgary’s sister city
to the north a favourite for new homebuyers.

Inside these pages of Condo Living, we give you a little taste of what Townsizing will be about with Brandi’s condo profile on The Brand townhomes by Birchwood Properties.

With that said, inner-city lifestyle is very much in focus in this issue of Condo Living, and Bucci Developments’ about-to-be-completed Radius condos in Bridgeland is a fantastic example of an amenity-rich urban
lifestyle. Not only do amenities teem in the surrounding neighbourhood of Bridgeland, but the in-house facilities readily available for residents guarantees a pampered existence.

ZEN Urban District in Seton is likewise offering a convenient, stylish and modern take on suburban living with its contemporary townhomes in this up-and-coming southeast neighbourhood. With the world-class South Health Campus hospital at its doorstep, they have steadily attracted healthcare professionals as buyers, but also investors looking to offer their units as Airbnb suites.

We can look forward to colder months ahead, but we can help you stay warm with these tea suggestions we have in our Focus On photo feature from Portia Yip; the bedroom design from STYLE writer Christina Loc, and Brandi’s local Bed & Breakfast suggestions for maybe a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway.

But whether it’s an in-town or out-of-town condo, you can trust that Condo Living will have the latest developments for you to choose from.
