An article by Mario Toneguzzi for the Calgary Herald dated November 25, 2013 details the rise of a thriving community that offers lucrative condos and beautiful houses for sale in Calgary, Alberta:
“Momentum has been so good in the Quarry Park project that Remington Development Corporation has launched another initiative – a 32-unit condo called The Gates.
It’s just one of many projects that are coming to fruition in the huge mixed-used development along 24th Street S.E. on the old LaFarge gravel pit between the Bow River and 24th.
Today, there are eight office buildings consisting of 1.1 million square feet which are occupied and 100,000 square feet of retail/service space which is all occupied.
Although there is no additional retail under construction at this time, Clayton said Remington is in the planning stages for a 200-room business hotel as well as a child-care facility for 300 people.
The total density for the area is about 2,200 residential units.”
The conversion of the old gravel pit into a self-sustaining community of residential and commercial complexes is a good location for families looking to start their lives in Alberta’s largest city.
The community is perfectly situated for small families who want immediate access to the city while having a bit of peace and quiet at the same time. Quarry Park is 16-17 minutes away from the city’s downtown area, as well as the Somerset-Bridlewood LRT station that gives residents access to the rest of the city.
There are currently four developers in the area: Cardel Homes provides spacious homes for families, The Laurier offers apartment units for dynamic singles and small families, Birchwood offers luxurious townhouses, and Remington (the head of the project) offers deluxe penthouses.
As much as the houses in this location are all sold, there may yet be some units that are still up for grabs. Reliable REALTORS® can help families who are interested in the area stake a claim and settle down in one of the most exciting areas of Calgary to date.
It is certain that Quarry Park will be seeing more residential offers in the future as it is such a prime location. Families who want to cash in on the tremendous potential of the area should consult reliable REALTORS® through trusty services like the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB®) to learn more about the possibility of living in the area, alongside information on acquiring a house for sale in Calgary.
