3 Things That Top Calgary Communities Have in Common

top-calgary-communities-in-common-origins.pngCalgary is a vibrant, growing city and home of some of Alberta’s best up-and-coming communities. Whether you’re single or have a family, live an active lifestyle or prefer to relax in your down time, there is a community that can offer everything you need for your current lifestyle.

Many Calgarians enjoy the experience of a close knit community and choose to move into neighbourhoods where they can meet new friends and live a life less isolated. Each of our developing communities have excellent amenities available nearby, offering shops, entertainment plazas and parks for your convenience.

If you’re looking to downsize, or you prefer a place with less maintenance involved, condos and townhomes are a fantastic choice, and with a huge range of options, you’re sure to find one that feels like home. Each of the communities we develop in has its own unique strengths, but there are three things that all of Calgary’s top communities have in common.

1) Transportation and Accessibility

If you’re hoping to make your home in NE Calgary, the Kintalla at Redstone could be the perfect place for you to settle in as their newest community member! These townhomes have an array of beautiful features, including stainless steel appliances, tandem garages and stone countertops, just to name a few.

This community has convenient access to Stoney Trail, Metis Trail, and the QE II Highway, not to mention the incredibly close distance to the airport. There are only two townhomes left here and they’re available for quick possession – 129 Redstone Circle NE and 131 Redstone Circle NE!

In SW Calgary, in the community of Silverado, you’ll find Hunter House. This development is comprised of exclusive stacked bungalows and luxury townhomes, conveniently located with easy access to public transit and both MacLeod Trail and Spruce Meadows Trail.

For an unbeatable location in the west end, check out Vivace at West 85th. Tucked away in the desirable West Springs community, this development consists of premium apartment style condos and luxury townhomes. This upscale community is perfectly located in a suburban setting, yet still close enough that a 20-minute drive or LRT commute is possible.

Conveniently located in southeast Calgary, right by the Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail SE, you will find Origins at Cranston. This community offers 1, 2, and 3 bedroom condo-style homes that are stylish and affordable, starting from $180,000. With your home in Cranston you’ll have the Bow River Valley down the street and Fish Creek Park practically in your backyard!

It is also home to Century Hall, a newly developed facility for local residents’ exclusive use. This facility features meeting and banquet rooms, a gymnasium, and a seven acre gated park! Other active community members can utilize the nearby soccer fields, and playgrounds. Speaking of staying active, lets see what life in West Springs is like.

If you choose to live at the Vivace at West 85th in West Springs, you will have easy access to the mountains. No city traffic stands between you and your escape to the Rockies! Or check out one of Calgary’s premier private golf courses, Pinebrook, just a 10-minute drive from your new neighbourhood.

Minutes away from downtown, in the community of Killarney, you’ll find the luxury townhouse development Killarney Townes. For active individuals, the neighbourhood aquatic and recreation centre features a full gymnasium, swimming pool, and regular fitness classes with a popular yoga studio near by.

3) Dining and Shopping

If you choose to settle at the Origins at Cranston, you will find an excellent selection of grocery stores, dentists, churches, daycares, hospitals, schools, and many other amenities to suit the needs of your whole family. Let’s not forget about Calgary’s inner city, though!

Becoming a member of the inner city community of Killarney means enjoying its many unique shops, the pedestrian bridge, and the popular community gardens. Ample dining and shopping amenities don’t stop here, because West Springs really has it all.

Vivace at West 85th boasts many nearby amenities including schools (public, private and bilingual), the West Side Recreation Centre and Canada’s Olympic Park. Steps away from exclusive boutique shopping, and proclaimed a “foodie haven” by the Calgary Herald, this community will not disappoint!

As you can tell, Calgary’s top communities are diverse centres of activity with something for everyone. You’ll quickly become integrated within your new Streetside Development community when you get out and enjoy the nearby amenities, and start making lifetime memories with your family and friends.
