food in­cluded. And we have in­de­pen­dent liv­ing, again on leases. The build­ing is now open, with two restaurants, one open to the pub­lic and one just for Jour­ney Club res­i­dents.”

West­man Vil­lage is akin to an all-in­clu­sive re­sort, with a full slate of wanted and needed ameni­ties.

“The com­mer­cial ameni­ties we have so far are a cof­fee shop, eater­ies, phar­macy, den­tal, wine/beer bou­tique, spin and yoga club and we’re in talks with a dry cleaner, ice cream shop, op­tometrist and es­thet­ics bou­tique,” says West­man. “We’ll have three restaurants on site, and the amenity cen­tre has a huge work­out gym, wa­ter­slide, wood­work­ing shop, arts and crafts shop, bil­liards room, party room, golf sim­u­la­tor, a botan­i­cal gar­den, demo kitchen for teach­ing, a theatre for movies and speak­ers’ se­ries, an ac­tiv­i­ties gym for pickle ball or bas­ket­ball, floor hockey, an out­side heated deck and so much more.

“All are avail­able and in­cluded for home­own­ers, ex­cept if you’re buy­ing a cof­fee or what­ever and if you’re book­ing a room for a pri­vate func­tion. We also have 10 suites that res­i­dents can book for friends or fam­ily to come and stay i n a nd we’ re the only mul­ti­fam­ily com­mu­nity in Cal­gary on a lake with sub­stan­tive wa­ter fea­tures through­out.”

Bad weather is not a hin­drance.

“Roughly 90 per­cent of t he hous­ing is con­nected by un­der­ground pas­sage­ways and/or sky­wal k s to the amenity cen­tre,” says West­man. “It is in­ter­est­ing to see the cul­ture and sense of com­mu­nity that has al­ready de­vel­oped. Peo­ple come out and they’re im­pressed. They’ve never seen any­thing like it, be­cause, there is noth­ing like it.”
