Back to the future

High hopes for high-speed hyperloop

They might not see eye-to-eye on much, but Calgary and Edmonton are united by their interest in the latest effort to bring high-speed transportation to Alberta. The hyperloop concept consists of pressurized aluminum pods travelling in tubes. Using magnetic propulsion and levitation, the system can exceed speeds of 1,000 km/h. Calgary to Edmonton in less than half an hour, anyone?

Family matters

Minerva and Glenn Kraushar plunged head first into homeownership in family-friendly Evanston

Eight years ago, Edmontonians Minerva and Glenn Kraushar tied the knot and then travelled south down the QEII to begin an exciting new adventure in Calgary. Glenn was beginning medical school at the University of Calgary and Minerva was finishing off her marketing degree. While in school, the couple bounced from rental home to rental home, their lives contingent upon the whims of landlords.

Shopping around

Selection, convenience and one-of-a-kind design continue to draw crowds to CrossIron Mills 

Bigger isn't always better. However, CrossIron Mills is a classic example of the perfect combination of quantity and quality. The ambitious retail development has enjoyed smooth sailing, even through periods of economic downturn, and become the go-to shopping centre for area residents and visitors alike.

Located in Rocky View County, just north of Calgary on Highway 2, CrossIron Mills occupies 1.4 million square feet across 674 acres of land. It offers 200 specialty stores and premium-brand outlets, as well as 17 large-format anchor stores.

While mall patrons sing its praises, some feared the timing of its launch in 2009 might start things off on the wrong foot.

Solar 101

Harnessing the sun for all your energy needs

St. Albert's Ron and Carole Kube had never known anyone with a solar-powered home. Then, in 2014, Ron Kube read a story in the newspaper about a household that installed a solar array. He was surprised to learn they were his former neighbours.

"In fact, the guy was Craig Dickie – he used to live across the street from us," said Kube. "And I was so excited that I called up Craig and I said, 'can I come over to the house and see the solar system?' And he said, 'yeah, sure, come on over.' "

The moment Kube saw the system, he was hooked.

How Calgary's housing market stacks up against other major centres

When it comes to the housing market and the availability of affordable options, people often lose sight of the big picture. Instead of obsessing over the minute details of the market in any one particular city, it can be helpful to take a step back and examine things in a broader context to provide points of comparison. This dose of perspective helps one to remember that while $400,000 might seem like a lot to ask for a detached home in one city, in another major metropolitan area, people might be hard pressed to find a home for less than twice that amount.

Exploring the Savanna

Edmonton's Rohit Communities see opportunity for growth in Calgary's northeast


 An Edmonton-based housing and land development company making its initial foray into Calgary sees opportunity for growth as the city's struggling economy continues to strengthen.

This summer, Rohit Communities will begin construction of 110 townhouses, named Essential Savanna, on 3.6 acres in the master-planned northeast community of Savanna by Genstar Development Company.


Possessions are expected to begin early next year, said David Allen, regional manager for the Calgary division of Rohit Communities.
