Set amidst the scenic beauty of the Ja­gare Ridge Golf Course with its man­i­cured, rolling greens and bor­dered by the nat­u­ral vis­tas of Whitemud Creek Ravine, Ja­gare Ridge is pret­tily placed in Ed­mon­ton’s de­sir­able south­west. Host­ing some of Ed­mon­ton’s most tal­ented builders that im­ple­ment in­no­va­tion and imag­i­na­tion to per­son­al­ize proven ar­chi­tec­tural styles, Ja­gare Ridge of­fers a set­ting en­riched with har­mony and last­ing value.

The de­vel­oper of such no­table com­mu­ni­ties as Lewis Estates, Black Moun­tain, and Jensen Lakes, Mel­cor Devel­op­ments in Ed­mon­ton has achieved a rich his­tory of award-win­ning com­mu­ni­ties that has spanned nearly a cen­tury. “Our in­tent with Ja­gare Ridge was to master plan a neigh­bour­hood that fo­cused on the pu­rity of ar­chi­tec­ture—one of the key at­tributes of Ja­gare Ridge that has been held in high re­gard since its in­cep­tion,” shares Re­gional Man­ager, Andre Banks. “Ja­gare Ridge is one of Mel­cor’s most ex­cep­tional com­mu­ni­ties de­vel­oped to date.”

With a vi­sion to cre­ate a highly val­ued estate devel­op­ment for those who want to en­joy prox­im­ity to a ravine-based golf course that could im­part a unique work-life bal­ance, 170 acres of prime views­capes have thus far seen 170 homes built to date.

Build­ing on the nat­u­ral beauty of the Whitemud Creek Ravine with ponds and park spa­ces through­out the com­mu­nity, its ex­ten­sive multi-use trails fur­ther con­nect to the ravine with sta­tion­ary ex­er­cise equip­ment along the trail sys­tem to com­ple­ment car­dio ex­er­cise.

“About 50% of the neigh­bor­hood has been de­vel­oped and we are start­ing Stage 14 this year, which will fea­ture ad­di­tional golf amenity ex­po­sure,” adds Banks. The 13-acre commercial site un­der­way along the south side of the neigh­bor­hood will service a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of the pop­u­la­tion within the area and will of­fer mul­ti­ple con­ve­niences, in­clud­ing food, drink, en­ter­tain­ment, gro­cery, and much more. “We have also con­structed parks and green spa­ces early in the devel­op­ment of the neigh­bour­hood to en­sure our res­i­dents will have great places to spend fam­ily time in their new com­mu­nity,” states Banks.

Dis­play­ing a tremen­dous life­style as­sort­ment of high-end ameni­ties to en­hance its set­ting, cus­tom wood benches in gath­er­ing ar­eas, hand­some perime­ter wood fencing, large boule­vard trees, and a grand wa­ter fea­ture all con­trib­ute to the neigh­bor­hood’s en­dur­ing qual­ity.

“Ul­ti­mately, the nat­u­ral beauty of­fered by the ravine and golf course that me­an­ders through it speaks for it­self,” cites Banks. “We have re-con­toured some of the golf course holes from their orig­i­nal align­ment to en­sure that the blend would of­fer both fu­ture res­i­dents and golfers the op­por­tu­nity to cap­i­tal­ize on the nat­u­ral and struc­tural beauty of the devel­op­ment.”

With 26 lots in Stage 14 this year, it will show­case Semi-estate prod­uct that will host 30 and 32-foot-wide homes with a por­tion of lots back­ing onto the 17th hole, fea­tur­ing Kimberley, Kanvi, and Hil­lview Homes as the builders. “Townhomes by Kimberley Homes are cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion from $550,000 to $600,000 and they are of­fer­ing a maintenance-free condo du­plex prod­uct in the $750,000 range,” states Banks. “Our Semi-estate res­i­dences be­gin at $750,000 with our Estate homes start­ing from $925,000.” Estate builders in­clude Perry Homes, Ace Lange Homes, Car­riage Sig­na­ture Homes, and Birkholz Homes.

“Mel­cor has done a tremen­dous job with their ameni­ties,” notes Kevin Birkholz of Birkholz Homes. “With trails that par­al­lel the ravine, play ar­eas for chil­dren, and work out ar­eas for adults, it’s beauty and features are a real as­set to Ja­gare Ridge.” Also keen on the ar­chi­tec­tural codes that pro­mote au­then­tic­ity in styles, Birkholz adds, “Your exterior el­e­va­tion has to fol­low a style and as a re­sult the value is that no two homes are alike—each has it own unique ap­pear­ance and own el­e­ments and that cre­ates a dy­namic streetscape.”

“We have strongly en­cour­aged that all ar­chi­tec­tural styles re­tain their true form, while in­te­grat­ing mod­ern ma­te­ri­als and con­struc­tion strate­gies,” shares Banks, who cites their Larch Park com­mu­nity, which fo­cused on high val­ued ar­chi­tec­ture and low im­pact devel­op­ment, as one of the mo­ti­va­tors for Ja­gare Ridge.

With this most re­cent stage, Ja­gare Ridge of­fers more home types to fit any bud­get. “It’s about price point and qual­ity. Our new multi-fam­ily devel­op­ment and smaller lots have really opened Ja­gare Ridge up to a wider de­mo­graphic, with­out for­feit­ing the qual­ity and stylish ar­chi­tec­ture that is renowned in the com­mu­nity,” notes Banks. The am­bi­ence of Ja­gare Ridge feels far re­moved from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city, yet ev­ery­thing one would need is nearby. Of­fer­ing quick and easy ac­cess to Anthony Henday Drive and Cur­rents of Win­der­mere, South Ed­mon­ton Com­mon, Ellerslie Road, and the shops of 23rd Av­enue just min­utes away, there is no short­age of shop­ping, din­ing, ser­vices, and en­ter­tain­ment op­tions avail­able. “It feels like an in­ner-city neigh­bor­hood, but is se­cluded from the sprawl of ur­ban devel­op­ment.”

“Peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ate the prox­im­ity to the golf course and with­out a doubt, Ja­gare Ridge Golf Course is the com­mu­nity’s star amenity,” af­firms Banks of a course that winds around creeks, cliffs, hills, and ma­ture forest to cre­ate breath­tak­ing vis­tas for its res­i­dents and a truly mem­o­rable golf ex­pe­ri­ence.
