Calgary builders smash attached-home stereotypes with innovative new offerings

Many buyers are reluctant to consider an attached home, citing concerns around build quality, space, privacy, condo fees, location, variety and parking. However, the latest wave of developments across the city, which exemplify a new attached lifestyle, might change their mind.

The inexact science of naming Calgary communities

When it comes to the names of Calgary communities, some honour early pioneers, others are named after the surrounding landscape and some simply sound like a nice place to live.

Pleasant Heights, Scenic Acres and Sunalta (a mash up of sunny and Alberta) sound like they could have come out of a real estate subdivision name generator. But how do developers actually come up with the names for new communities?

Marvin Quashnick, vice-president of the Thorncliffe Greenview Community Association, has lived near Nose Hill Park for much of his life, and frequently goes there to escape the stresses of city life.

Urban oasis

Calgary's urban parks offer nearby residents a slice of the great outdoors in the heart of the city

At the beginning of July last year, John and Ildi Arlette took their first-ever walk through Confederation Park.

By the end of that month, they had bought a home in Mount Pleasant sitting near the crescent-shaped green space that stretches across 162 hectares – including eight hectares of wetlands – in northwest Calgary.

"We were on a date night and someone had told me about Confederation Park," said John Arlette. "Ildi is from Ontario and I realized I hadn't shown her much of Calgary – I hadn't even been to the park myself."

After that visit, the Arlettes sold their home in Signal Hill, becoming both inner-city – and park-side living – devotees.

Northwest Niceties

When looking for a good place to raise a family, it's tough to argue with the medley of character and convenience offered up by the Northwest communities of Capitol Hill and Mount Pleasant.

Sitting on the northern side of 16 Ave. and bordered by Second and 19 streets N.W., the two historic communities have long provided Calgarians with an idyllic place to raise a family.
