The four-storey, 80-suite condo project is one of only a few developments in the mountain town with Tourist Home permitted zoning, allowing for short-term stays (under 30 days) or permanent residency.

Doing the right thing

Canmore's Spring Creek uses geothermal to lessen its environmental footprint

As the Alberta government doubles down on solar power alternatives through policy and rebates, some wonder if geothermal will also receive the same kind of attention.

Frank Kernick, developer of Canmore's multi-million-dollar Spring Creek hopes the provincial government will help offset geothermal installation costs through a rebate program, similar to the Residential and Commercial Solar Program.

The great outdoors

Long-time Canmore resident's mountain-lifestyle love affair continues with new Spring Creek condo

Jeff Taylor is a vibrant outdoor enthusiast who loves to ski, hike, bike and race cars. He's lived in Canmore for close to 20 years and can't say enough about the mountain lifestyle.

When he began his home finding mission, he knew that he would confine his search to the Bow Valley. He was looking to purchase a one-bedroom plus den condominium with a great view, one that was big enough to store all of his sporting toys and within walking distance of the quaint stores, pubs and restaurants on Canmore's lively main street. He found exactly what he was looking for at Creekstone Mountain Lodge in the master-planned community of Spring Creek.

Nestled in amongst the Rocky Mountains, Spring Creek is a community that wants to appeal to everyone, from young families to seniors.

Ticking all the boxes

Canmore's Spring Creek aims to give seniors care options in a resort-like setting

Having to leave your home and the community you love, when it comes time to downsize or when you need extra care, is one of the worst things about aging.

While even the most grandiose new communities try to tick all the boxes that allow aging in place – like live/work units, mixed-use services, and a range of options from affordable to luxury single family and mutli-family homes – not all can claim to package those choices in a walkable, resort setting.

However, a 70-acre development in the mountain village of Canmore, is checking off every one of those uses in what is a "legacy" project for developer Frank Kernick.
