Change is in the air at United Communities, one of the largest land developers in Alberta. After more than 80 years of helping homebuyers find their homes in some of the most distinguished communities in the province, the multi-awarded developer will now be known as Anthem United.

Anthem United traces its roots back to the 1930s. It began in rental and commercial property, and expanded into an extensive residential land portfolio. Today, Anthem United has one of the largest land bases in Alberta and develops communities thousands of families call home in Alberta, British Columbia and California.

“Our new name better reflects our relationship with our sister company, Vancouver- based real estate development, investment and management company, Anthem,” says Steve LePan, Director of Sales and Marketing for Anthem United. “Together with Anthem, we are a team of 300 in B.C., Alberta and Sacramento, California, with 190 projects under our belt, including more than 10,000 homes, 6.2 million square-feet of commercial and 5,000 acres of land for future development across Western North America.”  

This is the second name change for the company but the brand continues to acknowledge its roots. When United was formed in 1934, it was called United Management. It rebranded once, in the 1990s into United Communities when its main focus became greenfield land development. Since that time, the company has developed more than 60 communities and sold more than 20,000 lots where family homes now sit.

In Alberta, Anthem United has several developments on the go. “With extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, we’ve developed over 39 master planned communities, with 20 more currently in design or development,” says LePan.

2017 will be a busy year for Anthem United in the Calgary Region. Nolan Hill, one of Calgary’s fastest growing communities, is selling in its final phase. Its impressive castle-ruins entry features and parks highlight this northwest community; it will have 2,000 single-family homes, seven multi-family parcels and two commercial sites. It will be home to over 6,000 residents at build out.

Anthem United has over 500 acres in south Calgary, and plans to launch Belmont this fall. Belmont is located south of 194th Avenue, west of Macleod Trail and only 500 metres from a future LRT station. “Belmont is positioned to meet the needs of Calgary’s growth in the sector,” LePan says.

Then there is the highly anticipated community of D’ARCY in north Okotoks, just south of Calgary, which will break ground this spring. It can be seen as a follow-up to their highly successful Drake Landing community, which is entering its final phase.
