With plenty of space to run and play, and an envious selection of schools a stone’s throw away, the master-planned community of Currie is a perfect fit for families.

Its inner-city location is second to none, minutes from downtown and a short walk from Marda Loop, with all its trendy shops, grocers and restaurants. The amenities don’t end there, either.

“What makes it stand out are the school choices. Families are very well supported here,” said Mary Thymaras, director of real estate for Canada Lands Company, the developer behind the community. “We have five schools within the area and many more nearby. Some are walkable.”

The area features a collection of traditional public and separate schools, along with independent learning schools, faith-based education schools, French schools, college preparatory schools and special-needs-inspired schools.

“If your family has different, complex or traditional learning needs, everyone can be accommodated,” said Thymaras. “You are not driving across town – you are within minutes of each school.”

Currie also features plenty of room for the family to play and grow, with 23 acres of urban green space peppered throughout.

The community’s showpiece, Alexandria Park, which offers 13.5 acres of pathways, is currently under construction. At completion in 2021, it will house an off-leash dog park, a skating rink, a natural amphitheatre and a splash park.

For families looking to expand their children’s education with after-school extracurricular activities, Currie has it covered. The community offers everything from dance to performance and martial arts.

Highly connected and walkable, Currie is designed with new-urbanist urban planning principles.

“Every single home within the community is within walking distance of the park,” said Thymaras.

Home designs from the hand-picked builder group of Empire Custom Homes and Crystal Creek Homes offer luxury and customization. Customization options include the addition of a carriage suite over the rear-detached garage, perfect for a nanny, a university-aged child, aging parents or a renter.

“It’s a very versatile additional space to have within your home framework,” said Thymaras.

Home designs span the Contemporary, English Romantic, Georgian, Arts and Crafts, and Modern Farmhouse styles.
