2018 Stampede Rotary Dream Home evokes "Mad Men with a modern twist"

Now in its 23rd year of building the Stampede Rotary Dream Home, Homes by Avi's 2018 version of the Stampede staple provides sophisticated glitz and glamour with a 1960s vibe.

"The theme is moody, elegant, mid-century modern," said Christian Orme, Homes by Avi corporate marketing manager. White walls and natural light coming from expansive windows throughout offset the home's gold and black highlights.

Long live the auto

The car-less lifestyle is trending, but Calgary's housing market still driven by the automobile, say experts

Cars aren't going anywhere soon, and neither is Calgary homebuyers' desire for neighbourhoods – or condominiums for that matter – that support their automobile-driven lifestyles, say housing experts.

While much is being made about efforts to create a more pedestrian-friendly city that focuses on "vertical growth," Calgarians still very much enjoy the freedom that comes with driving an automobile. And they
want their residence — whether it's a condo, townhome or single-detached house — to support their yen for putting the pedal to the metal, said Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) regional economist Lai Sing Louie.

"Most people still want parking," he said. "They want the freedom to come and go with a car at their disposal, and they're willing to pay a lot of money to afford that."
